ATLANTA (AP) — The man convicted of bombing Atlanta's Centennial Park during the 1996 summer Olympics has announced plans to write an autobiography.

WSB-TV Tuesday (http://bit.ly/RELKup) reported that Eric Rudolph is asking the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to hand over suspect sketches their forensic artist drew of him during the manhunt. Since Rudolph asked through an open records inquiry, the agency has no choice but to honor the request.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead told the television station it is regrettable that the agency has to comply with Rudolph's request. U.S. Attorney Sally Yates says part of Rudolph's plea agreement included a stipulation that any book profits would be diverted to victims of his crimes.

Rudolph is being held in the federal Supermax prison in Florence, Colo.
