Two 20-year-old suburban Cleveland men, Connor Stevens of
Berea and Brandon Baxter of Lakewood, and Douglas Wright, 26, of
Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to three-count indictments in back-to-back
appearances in U.S. District Court. A fourth man pleaded guilty earlier,
and the fifth defendant faces trial after a defense-requested
psychiatric exam.
Prosecutors said they calculated the three men could face 30 years to
life in prison, based on the seriousness of the crimes. There was no

held in Cleveland in honor of Andrew Breitbart August 20 to bring
attention to the widespread media coverup of the mens’ connection to
Occupy. “Hating Breitbart” producer Andrew Marcus, who organized the
rally, has documented their www.scribd.com/doc/102741196/Occupy-the-Truth as
well as how the media continues to cover up the violence that continues
to be embraced in the Occupy community. The rally gathered Tea Party
activists from all over the country to demand accountability for the
media’s complicity in covering up the Occupy members’ attempted
terrorism. Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch, Jim Hoft, Andrew Marcus, and
others gathered in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart who always believed it
was ultimately the media that we had to battle in order to take back
the country.

While there, Occupy Cleveland held a small press conference where
they continued to defend the men and say that they were victims of
entrapment. U.S. Attorney Steve Dettelbach said, ”Make no mistake about
it—it was their plot. It was the defendants who selected the target they
wished to destroy.”
