(Two days following “Ruling in Beverly assault case leaves scars”
Man, 23, is jailed for mailbox blast

A federal judge sentenced a 23-year-old Framingham man to 29 months in jail for illegally transporting explosives and using them to blow up a newspaper vending machine in Needham last summer. Jonathan Tefft will serve the sentence concurrently with a state sentence he is now serving. Tefft was also sentenced to two years of supervised release yesterday by US District Judge Walter J. Skinner, who called him ‘not a terrorist,’ but a person with ‘some level of personal problems.” Tefft was indicted in August on the charges.
