Man who threatened Missouri detective sentenced
ST. CHARLES (AP) - A St. Peters man who threatened to kill a police detective and his family has received a suspended sentence and has been ordered to write an apology letter.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 33-year-old Phillip Borjes pleaded guilty last week to misdemeanor harassment. He was charged in August with threatening a St. Charles police detective.
Police say Borjes left three lengthy messages on the detective's work phone. They say each message contained threats of shooting and killing the detective and his family. Borjes identified himself on the messages and claimed he was a ninja and a former Army Ranger.
Borjes was placed on two years of probation. Conditions of the suspended sentence include writing the letter to the detective and getting substance abuse and mental health treatment.
