Ohio man admits to 100 bomb threats in TN, other states

CLEVELAND (AP) -- An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to making more than 100 telephone bomb threats to courthouses and other public buildings in five states.

Thirty-nine-year-old Lonny Bristow of Mansfield pleaded guilty Thursday in Cleveland federal court. He entered the plea, waived a standard pre-sentence report and was sentenced to 51 months in prison.

Bristow was arrested in bomb threats made in November and December to courthouses and public buildings in Nebraska, Washington, Oregon, Tennessee and Mississippi.

The FBI said it traced numerous bomb threats to prepaid phone cards purchased at a Wal-Mart store in Upper Sandusky, about 40 miles west of Mansfield.
