Remember those five self-described anarchists who tried to blow up a bridge in Cleveland?

Three of the wanna-be bombers were sentenced today, after they attempted to blow up a bridge using fake explosives provided to them by an undercover FBI agent.

According to CNN, Douglas Wright (a.k.a. Cyco) was sentenced to 11 years, Brandon Baxter (a.k.a. Skabby, was sentenced to nine years, and Connor Stevens was sentenced to eight years.

As we reported in May, the men met at an Occupy Cleveland event, plotting to blow up the bridge to send a message to major corporations and the United States Government.

The Associated Press reports that Stevens‘, complained to the judge that his son had been entrapped.

“My son is guilty,” he said. “And so is the government.”
