BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A Bridgeport man convicted of building a bomb will not get a new trial, according to a report by the Connecticut Post.

Kenneth Jamison, who was given 32 years behind bars in the 1995 case, had sought and won a new trial on the grounds that the judge had failed to properly instruct the jury on a witness's credibility, the Connecticut Post reported.

The explosive device, which had 100 pennies glued to it, and drugs were found when police raided the apartment of Jamison's girlfriend, the Connecticut Post story said.

The Connecticut Supreme Court has reversed the 2014 decision by the state Appellate Division to grant Jamison a new trial, the Connecticut Post story said.
