|John Smyth Junior|
John Smyth Junior, of Rockfield Heights in Connor, near Ballymena, was sentenced to three years in prison and five years on licence.
He admitted his part in making the pipe bomb after he was confronted with overwhelming forensic evidence, but denied planting it.
The device was left at the home of a young Polish couple in the Steeple estate, just months after Smyth junior had run for election to Antrim Borough Council. It did not go off and it was later defused.
