A fourth man who pleaded guilty in a failed plot to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Judge David Dowd in Akron handed down the sentence Friday to 35-year-old Anthony Hayne, of Cleveland. Hayne apologized in court for his actions.

Hayne had pleaded guilty in a plea deal seeking to avoid a possible life sentence.

Three co-defendants pleaded guilty later but without plea deals. They were sentenced earlier to longer terms.

A fifth defendant is undergoing a psychiatric exam.

The device was a dud provided by an FBI informant and the FBI says no one was ever in danger.
