ABERDEEN, Miss. – James Everett Dutschke has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison and five years supervised release for mailing poison laced letters to the President and two other.
Dutschke, 42, decided to stick with his previous guilty plea in federal court Monday morning.
At a hearing last week, Dutschke had said he wasn’t guilty and implicated Elvis impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis again. But a formal motion to withdraw his guilty plea was never filed. When asked Monday if he wanted to make a statement before sentencing, Dutschke laughed and told the judge it would be best if he didn’t.
