Man gets 8 years in prison for false Lambert Airport bomb threat

A St. Louis man has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison for phoning in a false bomb threat to Lambert Airport.

The sentence for 36-year-old Dorian Williams was handed down Monday in federal court.

Authorities say Williams called the airport on Jan. 15, 2010, and said someone named "Dorian" was possibly going to carry explosives on a plane. He was found guilty in July.

Williams served nearly four years in prison previously for threatening a federal judge, prosecutor, FBI agent, a prison official and the official's family in 1997.
