TUPELO, Miss. – Ricin suspect J. Everett Dutschke is expected to go to trial on fondling charges next month.
Three girls under the age of 16 all say he touched them inappropriately while they were students in his martial arts class in Tupelo.
Dutschke was indicted in April on the girls’ allegations and was free on bond until his arrest weeks later in that attempted ricin attack. In that case he’s accused of not only sending the poison letters to the President, U.S. Senator Roger Wicker and Lee County Judge Sadie Holland, but of also of trying to frame Elivs impersonator Paul Kevin Curtis of Corinth, as the person who targeted those government officials.
