October 01, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The man who took hostages last year at Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's Rochester campaign office was sentenced to three years in jail, followed by mental health treatment.

Leeland Eisenberg, 47, pleaded guilty to kidnapping, criminal threatening and making a false report to police.

He has been incarcerated since his arrest after entering Clinton's presidential campaign office Nov. 30, claiming to have a bomb. No one was hurt in the five-hour standoff. The "bomb" was road flares.
