Man Spreads Feces On Ex-Wife’s Front Door
A man who spread feces on his former wife’s door and left frightening phone messages for her has been sentenced to serve 10 days in jail.
Ricky James Knight, 57, of Sarnia, pleaded guilty to uttering death threats and violating a February court order to stay away from his ex’s home.
Court heard that on April 21, at 4:15 a.m., Knight went to the home, where he spread feces on the door and moved objects around outside the door including a propane tank.
During the same time frame Knight left multiple phone messages telling the woman unless she got off the property she would be done.
“You can’t behave that way,” said Justice Deborah Austinsaid.
Knight had no prior criminal record.
Knight has already served the 10 days in pre-sentence custody.
He was also handed one year’s probation, during which he must stay away from the woman and her home while taking counselling.
A 10-year weapons ban was imposed and Knight must give police a DNA sample.
