A man who threatened to kill the mother of his two-year-old daughter was sentenced to two years of probation on Friday.
Letero Pyfrom, 26, of Montell Heights, pleaded guilty to a charge of threats of death at his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
According to the prosecutor Inspector Timothy Bain, the complainant told police that her ex-boyfriend came to her home uninvited on May 10 and threatened to kill her because she was seeing someone else.
Bain said the complainant told police that Pyfrom had been banned from coming onto her property prior to the incident.
However, Pyfrom, who did not have a lawyer, told the court that he had no intention of carrying out the threat.
According to Pyfrom, he had said things that he “wasn’t proud of” during an argument with the complainant.
Pyfrom asked the court for leniency. He said he was the father of two children and had recently received a promotion at the construction company where he works.
McKinney told Pyfrom that he was prohibited from interfering with the complainant and her family during the probationary period, and cautioned that a breach of probation would result in a one-year prison sentence.
