A former town of Delavan teen pleaded guilty in October and was sentenced to three years probation for attempting to possess improvised explosives, court records show.

Anthony J. Miller, now 18, of Locust Fork, Alabama, had been scheduled for a final pretrial Feb. 1, but his case concluded at an Oct. 9 plea and sentencing hearing, according to online court records. Charges of disorderly conduct and felony bail jumping were dismissed but read into the record.

Walworth County Judge Phil Koss imposed and stayed a one-year prison sentence if Miller violates his probation.

On March 26, 2017, town of Delavan police responded to Miller’s home and brought in the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad to discharge an improvised explosive device made in a milk jug using household products, according to the criminal complaint filed last spring.

Miller told police he made the device because he was bored, according to the complaint.
