A man charged with making threats via Twitter against the New York Mets was handed a 90-day suspended sentence for disorderly conduct Thursday in Milford (Connecticut) Superior Court, according to the court clerk's office.
Prosecutors had alleged that Aryn Leroux, 43, of West Haven, Connecticut, threatened team executives, players and coaches via Twitter and also made a "specific threat" to Citi Field.
Leroux pleaded no contest. The misdemeanor will be discharged in a year, and Leroux will not serve time if he stays out of trouble.
He had been charged in October 2013 with second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace -- both misdemeanors.
Leroux also is prohibited from contact with Mets personnel, ex-Met Justin Turner and Turner's girlfriend, and is barred from Citi Field. There are no specific Internet restrictions.
"He's satisfied and glad the case is over so he can move on with his life," Leroux's attorney, Frederick D. Paoletti Jr., told ESPN New York.
