BENTON, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri man has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for phoning in a bomb threat that caused evacuation of a judicial building and sheriff's office.
KZIM Radio reported that 39-year-old William Scott Jr. of Sikeston was sentenced on Wednesday to 33 months in prison.
The incident happened in June, when Scott called in a false bomb threat to the Scott County courthouse. He was scheduled to appear that day for felony nonsupport.
