Douglas Wright, 26, will serve more than 11 years in prison this week — 138 months, to be exact — for his role as the supposed ‘ringleader’ behind an unsuccessful plot hatched by self-proclaimed anarchists to destroy a major bridge over the Cuyahoga River. His cohorts Brandon Baxter and Connor Stevens, both 20 years old, were sentenced to roughly 10 and eight years, respectively, for their role in the plan.
