Terrorism under Michigan Law
Under Michigan law, terrorism is defined as a willful and deliberate act that is all of the following:
- An act that would be a violent felony in Michigan, whether or not the act is committed in this state.
- An act that the person knows or has reason to know is dangerous to human life.
- An act that is intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population or influence or affect the conduct of government or a unit of government through intimidation or coercion.
Any act of terrorism is a felony in Michigan punishable by up to life imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000, or both. However, if an act of terrorism caused someone’s death, the required penalty is life imprisonment without the possibility of parole—period.
Threats of Terrorism or Attempted Terrorism
People are charged with making terrorism threats far more often in Michigan than those who are charged with actually carrying out the act. If you threaten to commit an act of terrorism and communicate that threat to anyone, or if you make a false report of terrorism, even though you knew it was untrue, you could be charged with making threats or false reports of terrorism. And it doesn’t matter that you were unable to carry out the terrorist act, or that you didn’t intend to act—you can still be charged and convicted under Michigan law. If convicted of threats or false reports of terrorism, the penalties include up to 20 years’ imprisonment and a $20,000 fine.
