SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- A Tooele man will be set free after he was sentenced Monday in federal court.

William Keebler pleaded guilty to attempting to blow up a Bureau of Land Management building in Arizona.

Keebler was sentenced to 25 months in prison but was given credit for time served.

“We can have deeply held political beliefs and disagreements with the government but we cannot then conspire and plan out criminal acts and intentions. There is a line there,” U.S. Attorney John Huber said. “We stay within the safe boundaries of the law to express our opinions.”

The judge took into account Keebler’s failing health as a reason for the sentence. He’s expected to be released from the Davis County Jail sometime Monday.
