Woman sentenced to 22 years for sending poisoned letter to Trump: ‘I’m just sorry it didn’t work’

A Canadian woman who sent a ricin-laced letter to former US President Donald Trump pleaded guilty to violating the Biological Weapons Act on Friday and is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

US District Judge Dabney Friedrich has signed a ruling 262 months in prison against Pascale Ferrier after accepting a plea deal. “My only regret is that it didn’t work and I couldn’t stop Trump,” the defendant said in court, according to CNN.

Ferrier, a resident of the Canadian town of Laval north of Montreal, was arrested in Buffalo while attempting to cross the Canadian border through upstate New York with a gun, knife and hundreds of bullets.

The presence of ricin, a highly toxic substance derived from castor beans that can be found in the form of B. dust, granules, mist or acid, was confirmed by two tests. Ingestion causes nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding in the stomach and intestines. These symptoms are followed by liver and kidney failure and eventually death from circulatory system collapse.

In addition, the woman sent six more letters several officers at a Texas detention center were told they contained “a powdered substance.”where she was jailed for a year after being arrested in March 2019 for a crime of illegal gun possession.
