Final Defendant In Bridge Bombing Plot Sentenced

The last of five defendants in a failed  plot to bomb a highway bridge over the Cuayhoga Valley National Park has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. 25-year-old Joshua Stafford was convicted in June after serving as his own attorney at trial. Stafford's co-defendants pleaded guilty and received sentences of six to 11 1/2 years. The explosives were fakes created in a government sting.
