AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A suspect charged with plotting to bomb a highway bridge in Ohio has pleaded guilty in the first of three expected guilty pleas in the case.

The FBI has said the public was never in danger even though they say the target was a highway bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Cleveland and Akron.

Connor Stevens of Berea in suburban Cleveland pleaded guilty to all three counts against him Wednesday in Akron before a federal judge.

Stevens was charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, knowingly attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to damage property with explosives.

Two other guilty pleas were expected Wednesday. A fourth suspect pleaded guilty earlier this year.

That leaves one suspect facing possible trial.
