Boston Blackmail & Extortion Defense Lawyers

What is Legally Considered Blackmail & Extortion?

Extortion and blackmail are similar crimes, both of which involve the use of some type of threat to coerce another person into any action they are not required to do. In recent years, this has been extended to apply to extortion carried out over the internet. Acts of both blackmail and coercion are severe offenses that state and federal agencies investigate and file charges for.

Threats that may lead to blackmail charges include:

  • Falsely accusing someone of a crime
  • Reporting another's involvement in a crime
  • Revealing private information that would cause financial harm
  • Revealing private information that would cause personal embarrassment

Extortion is a similar offense but, while blackmail focuses on threats regarding threatening information, extortion focuses on threatening physical harm or coercing a victim to provide drugs, pay money, perform sexual acts, and discharge debts. These crimes can carry serious, life-altering consequences, including time in prison.
