Sentencing Delay Granted in Ricin Case

OXFORD, Miss. – A federal judge has agree to delay sentencing of the man who mailed poison laced letters to the President, a U.S. Senator from Mississippi and a Lee County judge.  J. Everett Dutschke pleaded guilty in January and could go jail for 25 years.

In a motion filed last week, his attorney asked for more time to review and research a pre-sentencing report in the case.  The judge Tuesday signed an order giving him two more weeks.   Dutschke is currently in federal custody until he is sentenced.
