A Connecticut man who joked about bringing a bomb on to a Cape Cod-to-Martha’s Vineyard ferry just two weeks after the Boston Marathon bombings has avoided jail time.
 
    Krzysztof Malz of New Britain, Conn., was found guilty of threatening to commit a crime last week, and received a six-month suspended jail sentence and two years’ probation.
 
    The Cape Cod Times reports he also was ordered to stay away from the ferry operator.
 
    The 45-year-old Malz was arrested on April 28 after workers at the Steamship Authority’s Woods Hole Terminal contacted Falmouth police because a man preparing to board said he had a bomb in his car during a security screening. No bomb was found.
 
    Malz’s attorney said the comment was a joke that came at an unfortunate time.
