A man, who wanted to help a woman avoid getting evicted from her home phoned in a bomb threat to the Racine County Courthouse in October, will serve a four-year prison sentence.

Lee Lucas 46, phoned in a bomb threat Oct. 26 to help a woman, with whom he may have been having an affair with, avoid a court date for eviction. Racine County Felony Court Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz, sentenced Lucas on Thursday to three years of prison and one year of extended supervision.

The Racine County District Attorney’s Office charged Lucas in Racine County Circuit Court with one felony count of phoning in a bomb scare, a misdemeanor count of telephone harassment, and disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty due to a no contest plea for the bomb scare charge, but the other two charges were dismissed.

According to the criminal complaint for the bomb threat charge, Lucas was seeing a woman who was going to court Oct. 26 for an eviction hearing. He placed a call to the Racine County Courthouse and said three or four times that there was a bomb in the courthouse.

Lucas was also charged with misdemeanor retail theft after Mount Pleasant police say he stole liquor from Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly on Thanksgiving. That charge was dismissed by the district attorney’s office.
