A French Canadian woman pleaded guilty today, admitting that three years ago she sent to the White House a letter containing poisontargeting him Donald Trump, who was then president of the United States. 55-year-old Pascal Ferrier will be sentenced to approximately 22 years in prison, according to federal prosecutors in Washington.
THE woman admitted to making ricin herself, a poisonous, potentially lethal substance, in her home in Quebec. He then put it in a letter addressed to the then president of the US while he also sent threatening letters to eight police officers and corrections officers from Texas.
The sentence for “violation of the biological weapons law” will be officially announced on April 26 and will amount to 262 months in prison if the court accepts her plea agreement with prosecutors, the office of the prosecutor Matthew Graves said and relayed by the Athens News Agency. “There is no place for political violence in our country. We hope this epilogue will serve as a warning to those who would try to send toxic substances and threats through the mail,” he added.
What does the indictment say?
According to the indictment, the letter addressed to the White House named him “disgusting, tyrannical rascal”. “Give it up, don’t go down in this election” (i.e. the 2020 presidential election), Ferrier urged the Republican, adding that she has sent him “a special gift”, i.e. the poison, to “help him decide”.
The woman also threatened eight Texas police officers and corrections officers whom she believed were responsible for her imprisonment, for about two months in 2019, on charges of illegal gun possession. After mailing the letters in Canada, he drove to the US but was arrested by border guards when a loaded gun and lots of ammunition were found in her possession. She was taken into custody and remained in custody throughout the proceedings.
