Texas woman suspected of sending ricin letters to Obama, Bloomberg reaches plea agreement

A Texas woman accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors.

The Texarkana Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/17EiXgr) Saturday that Assistant U.S. Attorney Frank Coan added into the case docket for Shannon Guess Richardson a one-line entry that states "notice of plea agreement." The terms of the deal have not yet been made public.

Authorities say the New Boston, Texas, actress mailed ricin-laced letters to Obama, Bloomberg and a leader of the mayor's gun-control group. Court documents state the then-pregnant Richardson then tried to frame her husband for the crime.

Richardson has been charged with two counts of threat by mail and one of threatening the president. She remains jailed after giving birth in July.
