SC man sentenced on bomb threat, porn charges

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - An Eastover man has been sentenced to a year and a half in federal prison for calling in a bomb threat to a school and having child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles says 21-year-old Sidney Myers was also ordered Thursday to register as a sex offender.

Myers pleaded guilty in August. Prosecutors say he anonymously placed two phone calls to Columbia's Eau Claire High School in November 2011, claiming to have placed six bombs around the school.

No bombs were found.

An FBI investigation linked the threats to Myers' phone number. Agents say they found five videos on the phone of him engaging in sexual activity with his then-16-year-old girlfriend.
