AKRON, Ohio (AP) — One of five men charged with plotting to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio has pleaded guilty and will testify against his co-defendants.

The plea by 35-year-old Anthony Hayne came Wednesday in federal court in Akron.

His attorney, Michael O'Shea, says his client hopes to get leniency in return for his testimony.

The five allegedly were working with an FBI informant who provided a dud explosive.
