The failed bomber, Daniel Sheehan, had been facing a 30-year mandatory sentence following his 2013 conviction. Sheehan, a former Home Depot employee, was arrested in November 2012 following an aggressive federal, state and local law enforcement investigation. Federal investigators said Sheehan sent an anonymous letter to the Home Depot in Huntington, warning that a bomb had been placed in the store’s lighting department. In the letter, Sheehan demanded $2 million, investigators said. Suffolk County police bomb technicians located the pipe bomb inside a light fixture and performed a controlled explosion. Sheehan sent a second letter to Home Depot, warning that if the money was not delivered, all of the retailer’s stores on Long Island would be “shut down” on Black Friday, investigators said. Sheehan was later identified as the writer of the letters and arrested.
