The guy who allegedly threatened to kill Scientology leader David Miscavige is a free man ... after pleading no contest to making death threats and stalking the church leader.
Andre Barkanov, a 47-year-old Illinois resident, was sentenced to 1 year in county jail, but got credit for time served and won't have to spend another day behind bars.
Barkanov was also hit with five years of formal probation and a 10 year protective order, requiring him to stay clear of Miscavige and the church. He also has to complete a 1 year substance abuse program.
As TMZ first reported, Barkanov allegedly called the church's L.A. office, telling the operator, "Tell David that we are going to kill him" and "We are going to assassinate Mr. Miscavige and every single one of you."
