A Troy man accused of setting off explosives around his young child will serve about four months in jail.

James D. Kuhn, 31, is serving 120 days in jail on a probation revocation as part of an agreement worked out with the state, Waldo County Assistant District attorney William Entwisle said. In addition, Kuhn will serve a 72-hour concurrent sentence after pleading guilty to a disorderly conduct charge.

In exchange, criminal use of explosives, reckless conduct and endangering the welfare of a child charges were dismissed. Entwisle said the state accepted the terms of the sentencing because the case against Kuhn would have been difficult to prove and because the case would require having a young victim testify.

According to published reports, Kuhn made explosives using Fireball whiskey bottles, black powder and fuses, which he would then detonate near a garden to blow up plants. The child suffered injuries from falling sticks as result of one of the explosions.

The probation revocation sentence was imposed because of Kuhn's conduct with the explosives, Entwisle said.

Kuhn was convicted of domestic violence assault in 2009 and again in 2015.
