TX Man Sentenced On W.M.D. Charge

A federal judge has sentenced a Texas man for weapons charges, including the use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The federal judge sentenced Larry Eugene North of Henderson to 7 years and 3 months in a Federal prison yesterday.

North entered a not guilty plea after being charged with dropping over 30 explosive devices into mailboxes and in other locations across East Texas last year. North was arrested in April of 2010.

None of the devices managed to explode, but people were left on edge for weeks.
