Making a criminal threat is a serious accusation and could lead to a strike conviction. More must have transpired than what you recount. The safest thing to do is leave your husband in jail and take the bond money to hire a good lawyer who will investigate and defend his case.
Mr. Kaman is correct. There appears to be more facts than what you have stated. Your husband needs an attorney to represent him and do more investigation. A criminal threat charge is serious.
This really makes non sense. It doesn't seem like your husband did anything wrong. Either more must have transpired or, the victim lied to the police.
