Robert Leathers

WALWORTH COUNTY -- The man accused of throwing explosives out of his truck in Bloomfield in Walworth County -- just south of Lake Geneva -- will be committed to the Mendota Mental Health Institution for 50 years. The decision was made Tuesday, April 4.

In November, Walworth County prosecutors say 46-year-old Robert Leathers was doing donuts outside a landscaping business in Bloomfield late at night.

Witnesses then say he started throwing bombs out his window.

About a dozen devices were found that didn't explode. In court, it was revealed some homemade explosives were found at Leathers' home.
