A Fort Worth man who put a homemade bomb on the front porch of his former wife's house must serve 10 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge John McBryde on Friday sentenced 52-year-old David Barouch to the maximum prison term and also fined him $10,000.

Barouch in July pleaded guilty to one count of possession of an unregistered destructive device.

Prosecutors say Barouch's former spouse on May 2 discovered the box, which contained a battery wired to some powder, outside her Colleyville home. The device did not go off.

Investigators say the woman also found a folded $1 bill. Testimony at Barouch's detention hearing indicated the woman believed her ex-husband left the money to symbolize the last dollar she'd ever get from him.

The couple divorced in 2008. They have two sons.
