Texas Penal Code § 42.07(a)(2) is quite clear on what Burleson Police Department will (should) do to handle this situation:
(a) A person commits an offense if, with intent to harass, annoy, alarm, abuse, torment, or embarrass another, the person:
(2) threatens, in a manner reasonably likely to alarm the person receiving the threat, to inflict bodily injury on the person or to commit a felony against the person, a member of the person’s family or household, or the person’s property;
And the fine for Mr. George Dossett’s is also clearly defined:
Assault By Threat is a Class C Misdemeanor and:
Sec. 12.23. CLASS C MISDEMEANOR. An individual adjudged guilty of a Class C misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500.
“In cooperation with the community” we can anticipate Burleson Police Department protecting the community, right? George Dossett’s charges should result in the community being protected by seeing a charge appear in the next few days.
However…. will that actually happen?
