Federal Judge Sharon Aycock has dismissed a motion by James Dutschke to have his sentence changed back to his original sentence. A Special Administrative Order was placed onto his 25 year sentence after a new indictment was handed down while he was in jail awaiting trial. The order was placed on him stating he was a threat to the FBI.
In May of 2014 Dutschke was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for sending Ricin laced letters to President Obama, Senator Wicker and a Mississippi Federal Judge. He had attempted to frame Paul Kevin Curtis for the crime.
While in jail, James Dutschke wrote letters to his wife threatening the life of a FBI agent. He also attempted a second frame job on Paul Kevin Curtis by trying to get the girl friend of a fellow inmate to send ricing laced letters to Senator Wicker again. Dutschke has been in solitary confinement ever since
In October of 2014 the DOJ reordered Special Administrative Measures be kept in place stating he was a threat to the FBI.
He filed the motion to vacate his sentence in November of 2014 which would have lifted the solitary confinement condition. He has been complaining of the unfairness of the order which prevents him access to books and access to other inmates.
Judge Aycock gave to reasons for denying Dutschke’s motion. The first being she does not have the jurisdiction to overturn the DOJ’s Special Administrative Measures, and the second is that he is serving his sentence in a Kentucky federal prison where the motion should have been filed.
Prosecutors reiterated that James Everett Dutschke has only himself to blame for his confinement.
