ST. CHARLES, Ill. (AP) _ A Carpentersville man has pleaded guilty to making bomb threats against court facilities in Kane County last year.

The Kane County state’s attorney said Monday that 22-year-old Akiel W. Davis pleaded guilty Friday to felony counts of unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, burglary and disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Prosecutors say Davis called 911 on Sept. 4, 2013, and falsely said four bombs were hidden at the Kane County Judicial Center. They say he also called the court clerk and said many people in Kane County would die.

The court buildings were evacuated for several hours.
