A Mansfield man accused of making bomb threats to courthouses in five states has pleaded guilty.

Lonny Bristow, 39, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal district court in Cleveland to six counts of violating Title 18.

The FBI says Bristow used prepaid calling cards to make bomb threats to nearly 130 public buildings in Nebraska, Washington, Oregon, Tennessee and Mississippi in 2012.

Bristow was sentenced to four years and three months in prison. He could have received 60 years in prison.

On March 21, agents searched his home and seized computers, bank cards, weapons, ammunition and other electronic equipment.
