Understanding extortion charges in Arizona

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. And beyond those legal penalties, an extortion conviction can do significant damage to your reputation and your future.
