WASATCH COUNTY -- A man convicted of phoning in a bomb scare at Wasatch County schools will spend time behind bars.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports John McHugh was sentenced to serve 180 days in the Wasatch County Jail.

In addition to the jail time McHugh will have to pay an $1,100 fine and reimburse the county for some of the costs of evacuating the schools.

McHugh still maintains he is not the one who made the threat in March of last year and that other people had access to his phone at the time the threat was made.
