Ricin Letter Suspect Released on Bond


False alarm?

The Mississippi man charged with sending toxic letters to President Barack Obama and a U.S. senator has been released from jail, the U.S. Marshals Service said on Tuesday.

Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, was released on bond, Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Mississippi, told Reuters.

His release came as court documents showed a hearing on his detention has been indefinitely postponed but the charges against him had not been dropped. 

Let me hazard a guess here that there will be no charges against Mr. Curtis Woodfin

And I think this should be a teachable moment for the cable-newsers who relied on Senator Reid as their source for the story. In the future, be safe and don’t trust a thing that comes out of his mouth.
