Man Gets 34 Months for Wreaking Havoc Near White House Before Bush's Inauguration

WASHINGTON (AP) - A man who threatened to blow up his van in front of the White House two days before President Bush's inauguration drew a 34-month prison term Wednesday from a judge who ordered him to stay away from the nation's capital, even after he's released.

Lowell Timmers, 55, received the sentence from U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who ordered the Cedars Springs, Mich. man not to set foot in Washington for three years after he gets out of prison and to pay the costs of his electronic monitoring during that time. snip

At his sentencing, Timmers said he was speaking only "philosophically" last month when he refused to rule out committing a similar act in the future. "I absolutely have no intention of doing anything like this again," Timmers said Wednesday.

"You wreaked a lot of havoc," Sullivan told him. "If you come back to the city any time during your supervised release, I am going to make sure you never set foot outside a federal prison again. That is a promise. It's not about possibilities. That is a certainty."

And the bar tender turned him in knowing it was drinking bar talk.

4. KKKarl Better Start Worrying
He'll be doing at least as much time (although a firing squad sounds more effective).
