The sentence that can be faced by the threat is 2 to 4 years in prison if it reaches its goal, and from 4 months to 2 years if it does not.
If the offense with which you are threatened, and that you could have committed, is punishable by a prison sentence of less than 2 years, the prosecution may refrain from making accusations to facilitate the punishment of the threat.
Each case must be analyzed before proposing an effective defense, but what we must ensure, in the first place, is whether there is evidence or witnesses of the facts.
In the event that there are no conclusive evidence or witnesses, the denial of the facts can be asserted as an instrument of the defense, since the presumption of innocence is a fundamental right of all persons investigated. The contradictory versions are not enough for the sentence.
No. If you modify the lock of the dwelling where your tenant resides without your consent, you are subject to a criminal conviction with a fine of 1 to 3 months for a mild crime of coercion. The amount of the fine can range from € 2 to € 400 per day, depending on your financial capacity.
Criminal law is subject to the principle of minimum intervention. In spite of this, the infringement of the rights of the tenant cannot be impaired. For this reason, before a more than probable sentence, the best solution is to seek an extrajudicial approach between the parties to find an agreement and avoid trial.
