An Alabama man who drove 330 miles to set off pipe bombs at a company where he had worked has been sentenced to 19 months in prison. U.S. Attorney Brandon B. Brown says 61-year-old Furmon Earl Bozeman, of Gulf Shores, was sentenced Thursday for transporting destructive devices. Bozeman had pleaded guilty in May, saying he drove from his home to New Iberia on Jan. 10 and set off three pipe bombs at Nabors Offshore Corp. His plea and associated statement don't give a motive.
