AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Northern Ohio's top prosecutor says prison sentences have sent a message in the case of three men who plotted unsuccessfully to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio.

U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach (DEHT'-ehl-bahk) says the sentences handed down Tuesday in Akron show that anyone who tries to endanger the community will be held to account.

The device turned out to be a dud provided by a government informant.

The defendants are 27-year-old Douglas Wright of Indianapolis and 21-year-olds Brandon Baxter of Lakewood and Connor Stevens of Berea (buh-REE'-uh). They apologized in court.

Wright was the alleged ringleader and got more than 11 years. Baxter was sentenced to nearly 10 and Stevens more than eight years.
