Man who sent ricin-laced letters pleads guilty to fondling
Published: January 21,2014
TUPELO — The man who pleaded guilty last week to sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials has now pleaded guilty to unrelated fondling charges.
James Everett Dutschke pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges of sending ricin-laced letters in what authorities described as an attempt to frame a longtime enemy and Elvis impersonator.
His lawyer in the fondling case, Lori Nail Basham, told The Associated Press that Dutschke pleaded guilty today to three fondling charges.
In the ricin case, the plea agreement calls for him to be sentenced to 25 years. In the fondling case, prosecutors recommended a 20-year sentence to run at the same time.
Prosecutors in Lee County say Dutschke inappropriately touched former students at his martial arts studio in Tupelo.
