A federal judge has set a May 14 sentencing date for a Mississippi man who pleaded guilty to making ricin and sending letters dusted with the poison to President Barack Obama and other officials.
The man who pleaded guilty last week to federal charges of sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials pleaded guilty Tuesday to unrelated fondling charges in state court in Mississippi.
A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled for a man charged with sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials.
Authorities have dropped charges against a Mississippi man accused of sending letters laced with the poison ricin to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a judge, while FBI agents searched another man's house in connection with the case.
The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn't immediately clear.
Federal authorities charged a Mississippi man on Thursday with threatening to harm President Obama and a U.S. senator, saying he is the person who tried to send letters laced with the poison ricin to the White House and Capitol Hill.
The letters also contained the phrase "Missing Pieces," the same title as an unpublished book Curtis wrote about his belief that a black market for body parts exists in the United States.
Curtis said the men have feuded for years.
