Dwayne Maurice Butler had initially pleaded not guilty.

Crown attorney David O’Brien said Butler texted another man uttering threats against him.

The victim called police and pictures of the texts were taken.

Butler was later arrested and charged.

O’Brien said there is a history of hatred and violence between the two men.

Butler is currently serving a jail term for a previous offence.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Jeff Lantz sentenced Butler to five days in jail to run consecutively with the time he is presently serving.

Lantz also placed Butler on 12 months probation and order him to pay a victim fine surcharge of $100.
