The sentencing for one of the men involved in a plot to blow up a state Route 82 bridge has been postponed, according to the United States District Court Northern District of Ohio. The sentencing for Anthony Hayne, of Cleveland, had been scheduled for Wednesday but has been rescheduled for Nov. 30.
Hayne was the first suspect to plead guilty; he did so in July.
Three of the suspects in the case were sentenced on Tuesday. Douglas L. Wright, of Indianapolis, Brandon L. Baxter, of Lakewood, and Connor C. Stevens, of Berea, received sentences for between 8 and 11 and a half years for their parts in the plot. The three men had pleaded guilty in September, after Hayne.
Hayne, Wright, Baxter, Stevens and Joshua Stafford, of Cleveland, were arrested this spring after attempting to use explosives to blow up the state Route 82 bridge connecting Brecksville and Sagamore Hills. An undercover FBI employee had controlled the explosives throughout the plan, and they were inoperative.
Stafford is still undergoing a pyschiatric screening, the Plain Dealer reports.
