Charges dropped against man accused of sending ricin letters
OXFORD, Miss. – Charges have been dropped against a Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and others.
Paul Kevin Curtis and his attorneys spoke to the media at a news conference after the charges were dropped.
Curtis was arrested last Wednesday and charged with sending ricin-laced letters to the president, Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker and a county judge.
The order of dismissal said that the ongoing investigation had revealed new information.
An FBI agent testified in court that no ricin was found at Curtis home.
