Jason Christ not going to jail after conviction of bomb threat to Verizon store

Jason Christ has gathered some notoriety in Montana following his involvement with the medical marijuana business. However, Christ also became the subject of interest following criminal charges surrounding a bomb threat to a Missoula Verizon store. In August, 2010 Christ made threatening telephone calls to a Verizon retailer in Missoula, and in one call threatened to come to the store and bomb it. In April, 2013 Christ was convicted by a jury of these threats. Christ represented himself during the trial. Judge Karen Townsend sentenced Christ to a six year deferred sentence, with a $10,000 fine. The deferred sentence means Christ will be on probation for those years, and if he successfully completes probation, he can have the conviction removed from his record.
