MD Prosecutor Testifies On Mass Violence Threats

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - A bill to criminalize threats of mass violence could be in the works in Maryland.

Wednesday, a Maryland prosecutor testified before lawmakers in support of legislation that would make it a misdemeanor crime for someone to threaten an act of violence against five or more people.
The bill carries a 10-year maximum prison sentence, and anyone found guilty would be required to pay the cost of the public safety response.
