Devon Craft, a 22-year-old Oakland man, was sentenced Monday, according to U.S. Attorney Joseph P. Russoniello. Craft used a cell phone to place four 911 calls threatening “terrorist attacks” in San Francisco on July 13, 2006, according to a statement from the Northern District of the California office of the Department of Justice.

Craft tried to disguise his voice by using a Middle Eastern accent and stated that innocent people would die.
