No Contest Plea In Threat Case

JERSEY SHORE — A man accused of threatening violence in Lycoming County entered a plea in court Wednesday.

Matthew Bachman entered a no contest plea to one charge of making a threat with a bomb.

He was sentenced to five years probation. Bachman must also undergo mental health counseling and is not allowed to own a firearm.

A no contest plea means Bachman does not dispute the charges but does not admit guilt.

In January, police said Bachman threatened to blow up a business and stage a standoff with police.

Investigators found  guns, ammunition, and bomb-making materials in his apartment after his roommate informed police.
