A Lincoln man accused of making a bomb and keeping it in a bag at his mother's home has been given jail time.

32-year-old Aaron Finnell was sentenced Tuesday to 300 days in jail. He will serve about two weeks because of credit for good time and time he's already served since his February arrest.

Authorities say Finnell told his mother in February that he wanted to kill himself and anyone that came near him. His mother contacted police, and authorities confiscated a bag at the home that belonged to Finnell. It had a homemade bomb that an explosives technician had to render safe.

Finnell pleaded no contest to possession of a destructive device. His attorney says his client made the bomb for fun.
