This from Doubtful News:
Is the Dennis Markuze/David Mabus threat fest finally over? Hmm.

The infamous Dennis Markuze, better known to hundreds of skeptics and atheists he annoyed or threatened online as David Mabus, was given a suspended sentence for his actions.

Montrealer Dennis Markuze pleads guilty to issuing internet threats.

A man arrested last year for making threats to several people through social media on the Internet was given a suspended sentence after pleading guilty in his case.

Dennis Markuze, 40, recently received the suspended 18-month sentence after he pleaded guilty to uttering threats toward eight people. The case was heard at the Montreal courthouse.

Markuze, a resident of St. Laurent, was ordered to “abstain from participating in a social network, blog and discussion forum” as part of the sentence.

“[Drugs] seem to be the reason behind why the accused felt empowered to be the Voice of God in those kind of online discussions,” [prosecutor Suzanne] Nault said adding Markuze found employment after he finished his therapy.
. . .
Raillant-Clark and Tim Farley, a resident of Atlanta who was threatened by Markuze “for three or four years” said they believe Markuze resumed his anti-atheist postings even before he was sentenced. Waxman said on Friday that he asked Markuze about the allegation and said his client denied it.
The article noted that those threatened, especially Farley, did the careful data collection and documentation to show that Markuze was behind the huge number of threats. The same patterns have been identified as occurring again. It is highly unlikely that someone else took up the activities but that Markuze himself was back at his old tricks. This does not bode well that he will abide by the terms to stay away. It’s clear he does harbor extremely strong views against atheism and evolution. No court orders will change that.

You can stay fairly up to date by following The David Mabus appreciation group on facebook. Also, Tim Farely is keeping things current over on the Jref forum. In his opinion, Dennis had already violated court orders before sentencing. And of course, Sharon Hill is keeping up with the twists and turns of the Dennis saga at Doubtful News, which Mooner has linked to above.

If I were a betting person, I'd bet that he will violate his parol and be brought in again.

What I doubt is that we will see any more of his posts over here. But I could be wrong.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Great, thanks! As with any one who has threatened people with death, no matter how grandiosely and insanely it was done, it pays to at the very least keep track of what he's doing, and where he is.
