VANCOUVER, Wash. —

A Vancouver, Wash., man who had been accused of threatening to kill a city police officer, bomb Clark County buildings and bomb the White House has been sentenced to more than a year in prison.

The Columbian reports (http://is.gd/jb9gfv ) that 27-year-old Nikolay Kalachik pleaded guilty in Superior Court to intimidating a witness. In exchange for the guilty plea, a deputy prosecutor dismissed charges of threats to bomb and harassment death threats.

Through a Russian interpreter, the man admitted that on Oct. 1 he intimidated Vancouver police Officer Ilya Botvinnik by saying in a recorded jail phone call that "I'll have him sleep in a bulletproof vest for the rest of his life." Kalachik also admitted making other phone threats.

There was no indication that the man tried to carry out the threats.

Judge Suzan Clark sentenced Kalachik last Thursday to 17 1/2 months in prison.
