Former West Paramedic Sentenced To 21 Months In Pipe Bomb Case
A former paramedic in West, the tiny town devastated by a fertilizer plant explosion, was sentenced to 21 months after pleading guilty in an unrelated pipe bomb case.
Bryce Reed was sentenced Wednesday in Waco.
Federal authorities arrested Reed a few weeks after the deadly April 17 blast in West and accused him of trying to hide components of a pipe bomb. Authorities have not linked Reed to the blast, which killed 15 people.
They say he searched the Internet for information on explosives and ordered ingredients to make an explosive.
Reed pleaded guilty in October to conspiring to make an unregistered firearm and attempting to obstruct justice.
His attorney, Jonathan Sibley, has said Reed had no intentions of harming anyone.
