Northern Nevada man pleads guilty to explosives charge
RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 36-year-old northern Nevada man faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of an explosive device at his home in Winnemucca.
Terry J. Hanson Jr. entered the plea to a single felony count in U.S. District Court in Reno on Tuesday.
Hanson was arrested and indicted by a federal grand jury in May after prosecutors say the convicted felon paid $3,000 to an undercover agent for an explosive material and a roll of ignition cord.
He earlier was convicted in Humboldt County of possession of a controlled substance.
In addition to prison time, Hanson will face up to a $250,000 fine at his sentencing set for Oct. 9 before U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks.
