A Montreal man who armed himself with high-powered weapons because he believed elves were stalking him will spend several weekend stints in prison.

David Abitbol had pleaded guilty to charges involving firearms, making online death threats and possessing child pornography.

Today a judge handed him the minimum possible sentence because hen says Abitbol has gotten his life back in order.

Abitbol will spend weekends in prison for the next three months.

He recently pleaded guilty to six charges, including uttering threats, possessing and distributing child pornography, and improperly storing a firearm.

Provincial police initially moved in on Abitbol after he made threats on his Facebook page. At his parents' home on Gouin Blvd. E., they seized weapons and ammunition. Police later found child pornography on his computer.

Abitbol will also have to complete 240 hours of community service and will be on probation for three years.

The judge agreed with a joint recommendation that Abitbol's sentence be the minimum allowed by law. In handing down his sentence today, he said Abitbol had made significant strides since his arrest in 2010.

    He has the temperament to threaten peoples lives, has the tendency to look at naked children and likes to leave fire arms and ammunition in close proximity to himself. So the Justus system gives him weekends off. We all now that when he shows up for his weekends he will sign in the front door and exit the back door. 250 hrs. of community service,I hope it's not at a daycare.
