LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County man, Johnathan Ivins, 21, pleads guilty to making a bomb threat.  Ivins admitted on Friday that back on April 1st of last year he wrote on the Internet that he would put a bomb on a plane.  During the time in question, Ivins was a contract employee at the airport.

Ivins told investigators he was just joking but even a bomb threat hoax is still a federal crime.  His court case was delayed early on because of questions concerning his mental health and his competence to stand trial. 

Ivins will be sentenced at a later date to no more than 10 years in prison.
