Terroristic Threats Charges in Newark, New Jersey

Although the video call between Arias and the Hoboken woman reportedly occurred in January, Arias was not arrested until recently. According to court documents, Arias recently made an appearance in Criminal Justice Reform Court. The appearance was made possible through a video link because Arias is currently being held at the Hudson County Jail in Kearny, New Jersey.

At the hearing, Arias was formally charged with multiple crimes: making terroristic threats, unlawful possession of a weapon, and other weapons offenses. If Arias is ultimately convicted on the terroristic threats charges, he would face severe penalties that include a lengthy term of incarceration in NJ State Prison. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3, making terroristic threats is a third degree felony. A conviction for a third degree felony in New Jersey could lead to Arias being sentenced to 3-5 years in prison.
