Trio accused of plotting to blow up Ohio bridge headed for prison, drug treatment.

Three men convicted in a plot to bomb a Brecksville, Ohio bridge will serve nearly 30 years collectively in federal prison.

Judge David Dowd sentenced Doug Wright, the alleged ringleader, to 138 months, or more than 11 years in prison, Tuesday morning for his role in a failed plan to blow up the Route 82 bridge in April.

Brandon Baxter, 20, was sentenced to 117 months, nearly 10 years, for his role.

Connor Stevens, 20, was sentenced to 97 months, about 8 years, in prison. All three defendants will undergo substance abuse treatment and face lifetime supervision upon release.

Each sentence was more than the minimum required, but far less than the government recommended for each defendant.
