How to Determine If a Threat Is ''Imminent'' ?
In Anguish v. State, 991 S.W.2d 883, 886 (Tex. App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 1999, pet. ref'd), the court set out a two-prong test to determine whether a threat was imminent:
First, the person making the threat must intend and be prepared to carry out the threat immediately;
Second, carrying out the threat must be predicated upon the threatened person's failure to commit the charged offense immediately. Id. at 886.
The court held that threats to robbery victim four days before offense is not "imminent".
