An individual with dual French and Canadian citizenship who sent ricin to former President Donald Trump received 262 months in jail on Thursday in connection with the September 2020 incident and additional letters she made to Texas law enforcement.
Ferrier entered a guilty plea on January 25
In two different criminal cases, Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier entered a guilty plea on January 25. The Department of Justice reported that she acknowledged to producing ricin at her Quebec home, packing it into dangerous envelopes, and delivering them to Trump and Texas law enforcement officials.
In the report from Just the News, Ferrier will be under constant supervision after she is released from prison. Her previous detention in Texas lasted 10 weeks in 2019 as a result of a post asking for Trump to be shot in the face.
Trump may go to jail as a result of four indictments against him, thus her sentencing comes at a potentially dangerous time. In conjunction with his attempts to contest the results of the 2020 presidential election and his suspected handling of confidential documents, special counsel Jack Smith has filed two federal lawsuits against Trump, reports UPI.
A fourth indictment from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis relates to his election challenge in that state, and he is also facing charges from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over a 2016 payment to Stormy Daniels.
