Hardin County Man Sentenced For Bomb Threat

(ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky.) -- An Elizabethtown man is headed to prison for calling in a bomb threat to Hardin County's justice center.

Twenty-six-year-old Randall Gibson pleaded guilty Tuesday as part of a deal with prosecutors. It calls for a sentence of 13 years, but Gibson will be eligible for parole in two-and-a-half-years.

The bomb threat was called in from a cell phone on January 24th. It forced officials to evacuate the building for about two hours.

Gibson was charged with terroristic threatening and a parole violation.
