Halfaday Pleads Guilty to Parole Violation

Posted: Updated:

In two years James Halfaday has gone from running for city council to being kicked out of the state.

Friday the court ordered him to leave with his mother after it found he made threats of violence to his former partner.

A court document made public for the first time on Friday states Halfaday made repeated threats from his jail cell, including that his former partner was "literally going to get hurt" if he did not comply with Halfaday's wishes. Halfaday relied on his mother to communicate some of the threats.

The court reinstated Halfaday's original sentence of four years and six months. Then it suspended the sentence for two years of parole and four years of good behavior.

Halfaday was in jail to begin with for election fraud after he put a false address on election papers.

He violated his probation the first time by contacting his former partner and making a YouTube video showing the death of the couple's cat - a video that invited outraged people to contact his partner.

The court ruled Halfaday has 48 hours from the time he is released from jail to report he has arrived in Illinois.
