PLAINVILLE - A Plainville teenager has applied for a program that could spare him prosecution on charges he made a death threat to a 16-year-old girl.

Sebastian Anton-Victor, 18, of 40 Lena Ave., applied for a diversionary during a hearing on Tuesday in New Britain Superior Court. 

Court officials during the hearing said the victim will be notified of the program application and will have the opportunity to weigh in on whether it is appropriate in this situation. Should it be granted, the program could allow Anton-Victor to receive a dismissal on charges of second-degree threatening, second-degree harassment and second-degree breach of peace. He has pleaded not guilty.

Anton-Victor, who is free on bond, is due back in court on Oct. 15. He allegedly told a girl over the phone that he would ruin her life and kill her, the girl told police, according to the police report. 

The 16-year-old complainant contacted police on May 12 to report the alleged threat. She said Anton-Victor called her around 8:48 a.m. and threatened to ruin her life, according to the report. The girl, who was at work at a Plainville business, then put her phone on speaker mode, allowing her supervisor to hear Anton-Victor allegedly threaten to kill her, the report states.

Upon being located by police, Anton-Victor admitted to saying he would ruin the girl's life, telling police she has been trying to ruin his relationship with his girlfriend, according to the report. He denied making a death threat, police wrote in the report.
