A Nebraska man has been sentenced to 60 days in jail and four years of probation for writing a bomb threat on a restaurant job application.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jason Dornhoff was sentenced earlier this week for the threat last July. Dornhoff had pleaded no contest as part of a deal with prosecutors.

Police arrested Dornhoff on July 5 after the threat was found. Prosecutors say Dornhoff wrote on the back of the application, "I have no money, a huge bomb in my truck, and a syringe of bleach that will kill you instantly. If you be quiet and help me, you won't die."

Police did not find a bomb.

The judge ordered Dornhoff to complete counseling. Prosecutors say he was using methamphetamine before making the threat.
