Thwarted Freedom High School bomb plot gets Tampa teen Jared Cano 15 years in prison

TAMPA - Jared Cano, accused of plotting to set off bombs at Freedom High School., was sentenced to 15 years in prison and another 10 years of probation.

He was arrested in August last year after Tampa Police say they found bomb-making material at his home, along with crudely drawn pictures and a manifesto detailing his plans, which included killing two school officials as well as students.

In October, Cano pleaded 'no contest' to threatening to discharge a destructive device and attempting to discharge a destructive device with intention to harm.
