Truro woman re­ceives prison sen­tence for is­su­ing death threats


A 28-year-old Truro woman has been sen­tenced to two years fed­eral time for is­su­ing death threats to a man and his fam­ily.

Sa­man­tha Wilma Mae Wal­lace also pre­vi­ously pled guilty to two counts of breach­ing her pro­ba­tion terms. One charge was in re­la­tion to fail­ing to keep the peace and be of good be­hav­iour while the sec­ond breach was for fail­ing to pay a court-or­dered resti­tu­tion to a lo­cal busi­ness.

Wal­lace also pled guilty to con­tact­ing a per­son she had been or­dered not to com­mu­ni­cate with and caus­ing her to fear for her safety, for which she re­ceived a 30day con­cur­rent sen­tence.

She is to re­turn to court at a later date to an­swer to a charge of pub­lic mis­chief by re­port­ing that an ex­plo­sive de­vice had been placed, when in fact it hadn’t.

at charge stems from a Dec. 19 in­ci­dent when Truro Po­lice Ser­vice re­ceived a call say­ing there was a bomb at the provin­cial court build­ing on Prince Street. O cers de­ter­mined the call was a hoax.

e in­ci­dent re­sulted in a fur­ther charge to Wal­lace that al­leges she in­tended to pro­voke a state of fear in the gen­eral pub­lic and to im­pede the ad­min­is­tra­tion of jus­tice by threat­en­ing to use vi­o­lence against a jus­tice sys­tem par­tic­i­pant.
