A Three Hills man accused of threatening former Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi is a free man, for now.
Dexter Evan Shea appeared in Strathmore Provincial Court earlier this week and was granted $1,000 cash bail.
The 31 year old was arrested in February after threatening messages were posted on his Facebook page. He's also accused of threatening Lethbridge police and a former female acquaintance.
Details of the cases cannot be published because of a judge's order, but RCMP said they learned about all of the threats around the same time in February. At the time of his February 18 arrest, he was on probation for previous charges of uttering threats.
In addition to paying cash bail, Shea was ordered to live with his 90-year-old grandmother in Three Hills, abstain from consuming alcohol or non-prescribed drugs and not post any messages on any social media sites.
His next court appearance is May 1 in Strathmore.
