Final Bridge Bombing Suspect Found Guilty
The last of five suspects in a failed Northeast Ohio plot to bomb a highway bridge has been found guilty on all counts.
Joshua Stafford of Cleveland had acted as his own attorney at a three-day trial in federal court in Akron.
A jury convicted the 24-year-old Stafford Thursday of two counts of using weapons of mass destruction and one count of explosive materials.
Stafford, posing questions to himself, testified earlier in the day that he was unaware friends from the anti-corporate Occupy Cleveland movement planned to blow up the bridge between Cleveland and Akron.

The government says the bomb was a dud provided by an FBI informant. The other defendants have pleaded guilty and landed prison terms of six to 11 years.
