MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - A man who pleaded no contest to making bomb and death threats against a Detroit-area judge has been sentenced to nearly 11 months in jail.

The Macomb Daily reports (https://bit.ly/2bk0SyJ ) 56-year-old Keith Rebar learned his punishment Thursday. He earlier entered the plea in connection with threats made last September.

The Washington Township man was accused of threatening to place bombs under Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Katherine Viviano’s car if he didn’t get favorable rulings in a child custody case. A no contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt but treated that way for sentencing purposes.

Rebar, a 13-year Marine veteran, was denied entry into veterans or mental health treatment courts, but will get assessed for Veterans Administration care.

Viviano is the sister of Michigan Supreme Court Justice David Viviano.
