Attorney: Scant evidence linking Miss. man to ricin-laced letters sent to president, senatorSubmitted by DeMolay on Sat, 04/20/2013 - 04:28
The attorney for a man accused of mailing ricin-laced letters to the president and a senator says federal authorities have scant evidence linking her client to the crime.
Christi McCoy said after a court hearing Friday that the government has offered no evidence to prove her client, Paul Kevin Curtis, had possession of any ricin.
FBI Agent Brandon M. Grant testified during the hearing that he could not say if investigators had found ricin at Curtis' home. McCoy says the evidence linking Curtis to the crime so far has hinged on his writings posted online.
