People v. Jackson, No. H032539

By FindLaw Staff on October 23, 2009 9:11 AM

Trial court's conviction of defendant for attempted criminal threats is reversed as the trial court's instructions did not adequately apprise the jury of the factual elements required to support the lesser crime of attempted criminal threats, and in order for the jury to have found defendant guilty, it must have found that he specifically intended to make a threat that could reasonably cause the person to be in sustained fear for his or her safety or for his or her family's safety.
