Eric Rudolph pleads guilty in Olympic bombing and three other attacks
ATLANTA -- Right-wing extremist Eric Rudolph pleaded guilty Wednesday to carrying out the deadly bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and three other attacks across the South, admitting to one of the crimes with a hint of pride in his voice and a wink at prosecutors.
Rudolph, 38, entered his pleas during back-to-back court appearances -- first in Birmingham, Ala., in the morning, and then in Atlanta in the afternoon -- after working out a plea bargain that will spare him from the death penalty. He will get four consecutive life sentences without parole.
