Eugene Bomb Threat Suspect Sentenced

MEDFORD, Ore. — The man who called in a threat to bomb the downtown Eugene post office won’t spend any more time in prison for the crime.

The judge handed down a year-long sentence to Patrick Smoly Tuesday, but he got credit for time served.

Back in November 2010, Smoly parked his white van outside the post office then held police at bay for hours, threatening to blow the van and himself up.

Crisis negotiators eventually arrested Smoly.
