Kristopher T. Abney, 36, pleaded guilty Wednesday of one count of intimidation.
He was sentenced to one year in jail on the Class D felony. The plea came the same day he would have faced a jury trial.
A plea agreement between Abney, his attorney Mark K. Leeman and Fulton County Prosecutor Rick Brown calls for an additional charge of intimidation and a habitual offender notice to be dismissed.
Abney was issued an arrest warrant in the case on June 17, 2014, after an investigation by Fulton County Prosecutor's Investigator Dave Lawson determined he made threatening phone calls from prison to his ex-wife. The context of what lead up to the threats, Lawson stated, revolved around money, property and relationship issues.

Fulton County Horse and Pony Club - The Fulton County Horse and Pony Club is dedicated to teaching youth all about horses and the equine industry.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A car rammed into a crowd of protesters and a state police helicopter crashed into the woods Saturday as tension boiled over at a white supremacist rally. The violent day left three dead, dozens injured and this usually quiet college town a bloodied symbol of the nation's roiling racial and political divisions.
The chaos erupted around what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade - including neo-Nazis, skinheads, members of the Ku Klux Klan - who descended on the city to "take America back" by rallying against plans to remove a Confederate statue. Hundreds came to protest against the racism. There were street brawls and violent clashes; the governor declared a state of emergency, police in riot gear ordered people out and helicopters circled overhead.
The Rochester girls golf team shot a 468 and finished 17th out of 18 teams at the Western Invitational at Chippendale Golf Course in Kokomo Saturday. Renae Bickle shot a 107 to lead RHS. Marley Strasser added a 113, Ashleigh Navarro had a 116, and Ashlyn Foster had a 133.
Hired in January, Tippecanoe Valley football coach Stephen Moriarty stressed conditioning to his team during the offseason. That emphasis might have paid off during the team's scrimmage against visiting Warsaw Friday.
"I think our physicality," Moriarty said when asked what he liked from what he saw. "We were in shape. We had two goals going into two-a-days and throughout the summer: Nobody's going to outhit us, and we were going to be in the best shape no matter who we play. And I think we proved those things tonight."
Moriarty said he would give the defense a C-plus for its defensive discipline, saying there were a "couple breaks" but that those would be worked on in practice.
Denise Joan Johnson, 63, South Bend, passed away peacefully on Friday at home in her sleep. She was born in Plymouth on Feb. 3, 1954, to Wilburn "Duz" and Darlene (Engel) Johnson.
Denise graduated from Rochester High School and recently attended her 45th class reunion. She was a graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington, and worked as a school psychologist in the South Bend Community School Corporation., She was an advocate for the children she served. She enjoyed going to Sarasota, Fla., in the winter and spending time with her mom and aunts.
BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) - President Donald Trump on Saturday blamed "many sides" for the violent clashes between protesters and white supremacists in Virginia and contended that the "hatred and bigotry" broadcast across the country had taken root long before his political ascendancy.
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump warned North Korea that it could face "fire and fury" after a new report Tuesday said U.S. intelligence believes Pyongyang has successfully produced a nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Firmly taking charge in an unruly White House, former Gen. John Kelly moved in Monday as President Donald Trump's new chief of staff and immediately made sure that Trump's profanity-spouting new communications director was shown the door, ignominiously ousted after less than two weeks on the job.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House stepped up demands Sunday for revived congressional efforts on health care and suggested senators cancel their entire summer break, if needed, to pass legislation after failed votes last week.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - At least nine people died after being crammed into a sweltering tractor-trailer found parked outside a Walmart in the midsummer Texas heat, authorities said Sunday in what they described as an immigrant-smuggling attempt gone wrong.
