A 42-year-old Chimayó man was sentenced in court for his role in threatening his ex-wife.
According to court documents, Davy Sparks got into an argument with his ex-wife Dec. 31 where he apparently threatened her life.
“(The victim) said Sparks “told her he was going to put a bullet in her head if he sees her,” according to a statement in the court document. “She also stated he told her she better watch herself because he will blow her f---ing head off.”
The call was reported to be made from his cell phone.
Sparks was arrested, and charged with using a telephone to “terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend.” The original charge was assault against a household member, but was pled down to the harassment charge.
Sparks was sentenced to 364 days of supervised probation. He also must pay $73 in court costs.
According to the conditions of his probation, Sparks will not be allowed to consume alcohol or enter an establishment that serves alcohol. He can’t possess a firearm, destructive device or weapon.
Sparks must also maintain contact with his probation officer during his probation, and must also attend anger management classes with at least six sessions. He must also avoid all contact with his alleged victim and anyone related to her.
