JEFFERSON, Ga.---A 16-year old North Georgia boy will be spending three years behind bars for bringing a bomb to school and threatening to blow it up.

Andrew Criswell was sentenced in Jefferson Thursday.

Until he's 17 this fall, he'll be held in the Regional Youth Detention Center at Gainesville. Then the court will decide where he will spend the rest of his sentence.

Criswell was also sentenced to 12 years probation.

He pleaded guilty to felony charges of possession of a destructive device, false imprisonment and terroristic threats and acts.

Jefferson is in Jackson County, northwest of Athens.
