Bomber sentenced: The Oregon man who touched off a bomb near West High School in February was sentenced by a Superior Court judge to serve 20 years in prison Thursday.
But for the first time since the early morning explosion destroyed the van David Lee Enteman had set ablaze, the 38-year-old broke his silence.
Enteman appealed to Judge Richard J. Oberholzer for the chance to withdraw his plea and fire his attorneys, Los Angeles defense counsels Henry Sack and Richard S. Plotin.
Reading from a prepared note, Enteman told the judge the incident was all an accident, and pleaded for the right to a jury trial.
Oberholzer denied Enteman's requests.
