A Texas man accused of trying to blow up a gas pipeline and seeking guidance from Unabomber Ted Kaczynski reached a plea deal with prosecutors under which he will go to prison for an undisclosed term, court documents filed on Tuesday said.

Anson Chi, 35, was facing four counts of firearms and weapons violations that could have brought as many as 30 years in jail if convicted. Prosecutors said in their indictment that he tried to destroy a suburban Dallas section of a natural gas pipeline with a bomb in June 2012.

“The government and Anson Chi, defendant, have entered into a written plea agreement in relation to the pending charges,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Stover said in a document filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
