Lawyer: Former Ricin Suspect's Home Is Unlivable

Posted: Updated:
OXFORD -

A Mississippi lawyer says her client's house is uninhabitable after the government searched it but failed to find evidence that he made or possessed the deadly poison ricin.

 

Kevin Curtis was once charged in the mailing of poisoned letters to President Barack Obama and others, but the charges were later dropped. His lawyers say he was framed. Another Mississippi man has been charged in the case.

 

Curtis' lawyer Christi McCoy says she doesn't think Curtis was the primary target of the scheme, and that the person who sent the letters just wanted a scapegoat.

 

McCoy sent a letter to federal prosecutors saying the government should provide him temporary housing and pay to repair his home and possessions.

 

Her letter says that his lock was broken, picture frames broken and artwork was torn. She has also asked for the government to pay his legal bills.
