|ICJI 905 IMPLICIT THREAT
A threat of immediate and great bodily harm does not need to be expressed in words or through the exhibition of a deadly weapon. A threat may be expressed by acts and conduct which, under the circumstances, create a fear of immediate and great bodily harm.
This instruction is based upon State v. Lewis, 96 Idaho 743, 536 P.2d 738 (1975). It should only be given in circumstances where there was no express threat and no use or exhibition of a deadly weapon.
This instruction may have to be modified if the threat was made to a third person.
