A Superior man who threatened a police officer’s mother on the phone has been ordered to undergo personal counseling and an anger evaluation, but has the chance to escape jail time.
Charles David Sislo, 39, pleaded guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court last week to one count of unlawful use of a phone. One count of stalking was dismissed.
A deferred judgment of conviction agreement was entered. Sislo was ordered to pay about $316 in court costs and fines, stay out of trouble with the law and schedule and cooperate with the counseling and evaluation. If he abides by the terms of the agreement by Nov. 6, he would have no additional penalties or jail time. If he does not follow the terms, Sislo would be sentenced to 60 days in jail and ordered to pay an additional $50.
According to the criminal complaint:
Sislo called Rosemary Lear on Aug. 19 shortly after her son, Superior Police Sgt. William Lear, pulled the Superior man over for a traffic stop. Sislo told her he knew where she lived and he was going to go after her son’s wife and daughter’s boyfriend.
An investigation of Sislo’s phone showed a call placed to Rosemary Lear’s number that night. In addition, a text message was received on the phone from AT&T Directory Assistance listing her number and address.
Two months ago Sislo pleaded no contest in Douglas County Circuit Court to one misdemeanor count of theft by fraud as a party to a crime for using an elderly woman’s checking account to pay his utility bill over the phone in December 2010. A felony count of identity theft was dismissed. A deferred judgment of conviction agreement was entered for that case. If Sislo stays out of trouble with the law and pays fines and court costs totaling $379 by Aug. 23, he will be sentenced to 10 days in jail, but failure to abide by the terms of the agreement, he will be sentenced to 40 days of jail and be ordered to pay an additional $100 in fines.
