On Friday, a TV actress was arrested for sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The actress, Shannon Rogers Guess Richardson, informed authorities a month ago that her husband, Nathan Richardson, was the mastermind behind the letters, but FBI officials believe otherwise.
Richardson made a statement that she uncovered her husband’s alleged scheme by finding strange content in their refrigerator and ricin-related Internet searches on their shared computer, but investigators have evidence that she sent the letters herself on May 20th.
If convicted Shannon will serve up to 10 years in prison.
