AKRON, Ohio (AP) -

Three men who pleaded guilty to planning to bomb a highway bridge in Cleveland will learn their fate Tuesday morning.

Douglas Wright of Indianapolis, Brandon Baxter of Lakewood and Connor Stevens of Berea will all be sentenced by Federal Judge David Dowd in Akron.

Wright, the alleged ring leader, could face more than 30 years in prison. Guidelines call for shorter sentences for the other two men.

A fourth defendant will be sentenced on Wednesday and a fifth is undergoing a psychiatric exam.

The defense says the defendants were coached by an FBI informant.
