A Pittsburgh man who called in a series of bomb threats will spend two years in prison a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Termaine Washington, 23, a North Side native for whom authorities had no address, pleaded guilty in March to phoning in six bomb threats on a stolen cell phone over four days in September. He admitted to threatening three times to blow up the Allegheny County Jail, twice to blow up PNC Park and once to blow up an unspecified T station.

U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak also sentenced Washington to three years of probation.
