Ricin Suspect Pleads Guilty
(Oxford, MS) The man accused of sending poison laced letters in the mail to three elected officials, including President Obama, pleaded guilty Friday.
James Everett Dutschke admitted to making ricin and mailing letters with ricin to President Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee Co. judge.
The recommendation for sentencing is 300 months in federal prison, with time already spent in jail counting toward that.
There is no sentencing date yet.
Dutschke was in tears at times and he tried arguing some of the evidence brought against him—
