Nicholas Mitchell was accused of putting razor blades and screws into the mass of pizzas that were sold in supermarkets in Maine and New Hampshire, in the United States. On Thursday he was sentenced to 4 years and 9 months in prison.
In June he had made a settlement with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to tampering with consumer products. No one was harmed by the artifacts within the mass, but still the authorities called it a dangerous act. Mitchell was captured in October of last year after clients notified the company of the incident.
