(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A Hobart man was sentenced to four months in prison today for calling 911 and threatening President Bush's life.

But Clifton Carl Niles the third was allowed to go home based on time served.

Niles pleaded guilty to making two 911 calls on August 29th, when Bush visited the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

Bush was in town for a fund-raising luncheon to support former US Representative Steve Largent's bid for governor and US Senator Jim Inhofe's re-election effort.

An affidavit says that in the first call, Niles said the president wouldn't leave the Cox Convention Center alive, and in the second he said the president is the anti-Christ and would die.

Niles is undergoing outpatient psychiatric treatment and his attorney says he has a steady job.
