CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- A man who detonated two bombs in Cedar City in March has been sentenced.

A judge ordered 19-year-old Aaron B. LeBaron to serve one year in jail and probation after he pleaded guilty to a first-degree felony explosives count.

LeBaron must also pay a one-thousand dollar fine and obtain a mental health evaluation.

Authorities say on March second, LeBaron blew up a vending machine at a car wash. While, a second bomb exploded in the women's restroom at Park Discovery.

Police say LeBaron, who was arrested on a tip, had bomb-making material at his home capable of causing even larger blasts.
