People v. Fierro, No. B209030

By FindLaw Staff on January 12, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction of defendant for making criminal threats and giving false information to a police officer, arising from an altercation with another motorist at a gas station, is affirmed as substantial evidence supports conviction for making criminal threats where the jury reasonably could have found that the defendant's action created a sustained fear, a state of mind that was certainly more than momentary, fleeting, or transitory.
