Brian Campbell, 31, was convicted Friday of possessing of an improvised explosive device in his Madison apartment.
In connection with a plea agreement, Campbell was also convicted of second degree reckless endangerment. Campbell entered no contest pleas to both felony charges.
In March, local, state and federal authorities cleared Campbell’s west side Madison apartment of what authorities said were volatile, bomb-making materials, after neighbors complained of noxious smells. The apartment complex was evacuated for nearly a week.
Campbell will be sentenced next month. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors will ask for no more than three years in prison for Campbell.
The Illinois man also faces a lawsuit from the owners of his former apartment complex. They are asking for more than $47,000 to cover unpaid rent and damage to the premises.
