AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Two of the four men who pleaded guilty in a failed plot to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio are appealing their prison sentences.
Appeals were filed Monday with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati for 21-year-old Brandon Baxter of Lakewood, sentenced to nearly 10 years, and 27-year-old Douglas Wright of Indianapolis, the purported ring leader who was sentenced to 11 ½ years.
The third defendant sentenced last week in Akron also plans to appeal. Their attorneys say the men deserve leniency because they were entrapped by an FBI informant who provided a dud bomb device.
A fourth defendant is considering withdrawing his guilty plea if he doesn't get the lenient sentence offered in return for his cooperation. A fifth defendant is undergoing a psychiatric exam.
