Actress Admits Sending Ricin Letter To Obama

facebook

A Texas actress who told the FBI her husband had sent ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, then allegedly said her husband made her mail the letters, was charged Friday with threatening the president.

Shannon Richardson appeared in a Texarkana courtroom charged with mailing a threatening communication to the president. If convicted the New Boston resident could spend as many as 10 years in prison.

Richardson, who has played bit roles in television shows including ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘The Walking Dead’, as well as the movie ‘The Blind Side’, was arrested earlier Friday for allegedly mailing ricin-laced letters to the White House, Bloomberg and the mayor’s Washington gun-control group. The letters’ postmark showed the letters were mailed from Shreveport.

No charges have been filed against her husband, Nathaniel Richardson. His attorney said the Richardsons, who have five children, are in the midst of a divorce.
