Student sentenced to 2 years for having bomb the night before Jerry Falwell's funeral

A Liberty University student was pleaded guilty and sentenced to two years in prison. He possessed a bomb the night before the Rev. Jerry Falwell's funeral.

Mark David Uhl, 19, asked the court for leniency at Tuesday's sentencing, but that was rejected by U.S. District Judge Norman K. Moon.

"For the court to just let you walk out of here like this was some kind of Halloween prank would be criminal," Moon said.

Uhl was arrested May 21 after Campbell County authorities acting on a tip searched the trunk of his car and found five bombs that state police agents called "homemade napalm."

Authorities have said they do not believe Uhl intended to disrupt Falwell's funeral services or harm the Falwell family. At a hearing in May, a federal agent had said Uhl had other plans for violence, including a plot with a friend to disrupt a prom at his former high school in northern Virginia with pepper spray.

Uhl rriveracould have received up to 10 years in prison, but he had changed his plea to guilty under an agreement with prosecutors. The judge also ordered him to serve three years on probation following his release from prison.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
