AKRON -- The Brecksville bridge bomb suspects will remain behind bars, at least for the time being.

The five defendants were in U.S. District Court in Akron Wednesday afternoon for a detention hearing.

The prosecution argued that the suspects were too dangerous to be let out on bond.

The defense says they wouldn't even be facing criminal charges had the government not entrapped them.

U.S. District Court Judge David Dowd Jr. will determine whether the suspects should be released pending trial sometime next month.

The five have remained in federal custody since their arrest last month and face a Sept. 17 trial.
