Lawrence Jackson repeatedly threatened to kill the woman who was living with him on June 4, according to the Douglas County District Attorney's office. The woman said she was afraid Jackson would attack her or his children.
The woman called police from a friend's residence after she left home under the guise of going to work. The defense claimed the victim made up the story because she was mad at Jackson over his possible involvement with another woman.
Jackson is facing a sentence of five to 17 months in prison. He will be sentenced by Judge Paula Martin at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 28.
