Ricin Letters Update: Dutschke Enters Plea

James Dutschke has waived his hearing and has entered a not guilty plea:

OXFORD – The Tupelo man accused in a scheme to send poisoned letters to public officials pleaded not guilty Wednesday through court documents.

This way, J. Everett Dutschke avoided a scheduled federal court appearance in Oxford today to enter this plea before Magistrate Judge S. Allan Alexander.

Dutschke, 41, stands indicted on five counts that he made the poison, ricin and used the mail to send it as a weapon to threaten President Barack Obama, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Tupelo and Lee County Justice Court Judge Sadie Holland.

When he signed the hearing waiver, he drew a “smiley face” beside his signature as he’s done on numerous other court documents.
