SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2009 ONCJ 734, Mr. D was charged with uttering threats and harassing communication. Mr. D threatened his girlfriend, Ms. P and her children over email, writing that he hoped her kids would die and made derogatory comments about Ms. P. Ms. P claimed he had called her work and told her employee she was a drug addict, repeatedly called Ms. P’s home, cellphone and parents’ phone, among other calls. There was no record of those calls and Ms. P’s credibility was damaged due to her demeanor and strong dislike of Mr. D.
Mr. D was found guilty of uttering threats and was acquitted of the harassment charges.
