A Wisconsin political activist accused of trying to buy a lethal dose of a radioactive substance online pleaded guilty Friday to one count of receiving a nuclear material. Jeremy Ryan, 31, entered his plea before U.S. District Judge James Peterson, about 10 days before he was scheduled to stand trial on that count and another terrorism-related charge, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. Ryan is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 12. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, but a plea agreement signed last year indicated Ryan would be sentenced to time served. Ryan, known to many as “Segway Jeremy” because he rode a Segway scooter at state Capitol rallies, has been in jail since October 2018, when he was arrested after picking up a package containing an inert substitute for a radioactive material.
