In some instances you can be charged criminally for threatening to kill someone. You may also be the subject of a civil law suit. But, in most instances m,ere words do not rise to the level of threat to make either prosecution successful. It depends upon the facts; i.e. who is threatened, how they're threaten, and in what setting or context.

If you feel that you may be arrested for something you said or did, you should consult direclty with an attorney in your area soon. Many offer a free or low cost initial consultation. You should also consutl diorelcty with an atotnrey, if you have been the subject of a threat.

Good luck
