Criminal Law:

Extortion

Most states understand extortion as the gaining of property or money by almost any kind of force, or threat of

  • 1) violence
  • 2) property damage
  • 3) harm to reputation
  • 4) unfavorable government action.

While usually viewed as a type of theft or larceny, extortion differs from robbery, in that the threat in question does not pose an imminent physical danger to the victim.
