SANDPOINT, Idaho -- A 45-year-old Bonners Ferry woman charged with calling in a bomb threat in an apparent effort to delay her sentencing in a drug case has been sentenced to three- to six years in prison.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports Robin Ann Eby was sentenced on Nov. 9, four days after she had been scheduled to be sentenced for possession of methamphetamine. District Judge Steve Verby retained jurisdiction.
Sandpoint Police say Eby tried to call the newspaper to warn of the bomb threat on Nov. 5, but accidentally called an assisted living facility and relayed the threat to officials there.
The threat forced the evacuation of the Bonner County Administration Building during a training session for election workers.
A preliminary hearing on the bomb threat charge is set for Wednesday.
