A man who called in a phony bomb threat to San Francisco International Airport, hoping to delay a Korea-bound plane so his girlfriend could catch the flight, was sentenced Friday to 10 months in prison. Flavio David Mendoza, 35, told U.S. District Judge Charles Legge that he had not intended to harm anybody in making the call Dec. 30. "I was always respectful of the law," said Mendoza, a Bolivian citizen. "After this experience, I will be even more respectful of the law."
