Okla. Soldier Sentenced, Took Fake Bomb Onto Ft. Sill

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal prosecutor says a Fort Sill soldier has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for taking a fake bomb into the office of his commander at the fort.

U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats said in a news release that 28-year-old 1st Lt. James Joseph Dabrowski of Lawton was sentenced in federal court in Oklahoma City. Dabrowski had pleaded guilty in September to making a hoax regarding an explosive device.

Investigators say Dabrowski was meeting with the commander when he pulled a box from his backpack to reveal a mortar shell that had a clock and wires attached and a liquid in another container.

The device was later determined to have no explosive material.
