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

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.
