Extortion occurs when a person commits theft by “knowingly” obtaining or seeking to obtain property or services by means of a threat to take future action which includes:

  • Causing physical injury by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument
  • Causing physical injury in some other manner
  • Causing damage to property
  • Engaging in other conduct constituting a criminal offense
  • Accusing someone of a crime or bringing criminal charges against anyone
  • Exposing a secret or asserted fact (whether true or false) tending to subject anyone to hatred, contempt or ridicule or to impair the person’s credit or business
  • Taking or withholding action as a public servant or cause a public servant to take or withhold action
  • Causing anyone to part with any property

Because extortion covers a wide range of charges, the possible punishments cover a wide range as well. Sentences range from the possibility of probation to years in prison.
