Texas women sentenced to 18 years for sending ricin to Obama

A Texas woman was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years in prison for sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, held minor acting roles in film and television before mailing the three letters and claiming to police that her estranged husband had done it.
