Internet threat imprisons man

The Associated Press

        LEXINGTON — A Versailles man who threatened to blow up a Colorado school in an Internet chat room has been sentenced to a year in federal prison.

        Philip Tkacz, 23, must also spend two years on supervised probation after his release and must show his probation officer details of his computer and Internet use, U.S. District Judge Karl S. Forester ruled Friday.

        Mr. Tkacz was arrested in April after he said he was going to launch an attack on a high school in Arvada, Colo., on the one-year anniversary of the shootings at Columbine High School.
