FBI: Texas woman admits sending Obama ricin letter

By NOMAAN MERCHANT and DANNY ROBBINS
Associated Press

TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) -- The FBI says a Texas woman admitted sending ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but only after trying to pin it on her husband.

Shannon Guess Richardson was charged Friday with mailing a threat to the president. The federal charge carries up to 10 years in prison.

The 35-year-old actress and pregnant mother of five contacted authorities on May 30 to implicate her husband.

An FBI affidavit says she failed a polygraph test and investigators found inconsistencies in her story.

The affidavit says she later admitted mailing the letters knowing they contained ricin, but said her husband typed them and made her do it.

No charges have been filed against her husband. His attorney says the couple is divorcing and the letters were a setup.
