Man fined for threatening ex-girlfriend’s new lover

A man, who threatened a love-rival through his WhatsApp status and a voicemail, has been convicted.

Bus driver Martin Miller pleaded guilty to a charge of threats by writing at his arraignment yesterday.

Prosecutors said that Miller put Darceo Rolle in fear of death with his messages.

According to Miller, the bad blood stemmed from a row over a woman.

Miller said he had a relationship with the woman before she left him for Rolle, who is also a bus driver.

Miller told the court that Rolle had also threatened him, but “jumped slick” and filed a complaint with police.

He said he didn’t understand the source of contention since Rolle “already had the woman”.

He asked the court for leniency, claiming that he was the sole provider for his five daughters. 

Miller had a previous conviction for threats of death in 2018.

Magistrate Samuel McKinney fined him $1,500 for his latest conviction; in the alternative, he’ll spend one year in prison.
