MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A 35-year-old man who detonated an explosive device near a Medford shopping area has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Justin William Keaton received the sentence Friday in Jackson County Court.
He pleaded guilty to a felony count of unlawfully manufacturing a destructive device that he detonated Nov. 7 at the North Medford Fred Meyer. There were no reported injuries.
Keaton has no listed home address and has a long criminal history with a 138 prior arrests and an attempted arson conviction.
Circuit Judge Tim Barnack said that criminal history couldn't be ignored and handing down a lenient sentence would be unfair to the community.
