Charges have been dropped against Paul Kevin Curtis, the Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other officials, the Associated Press reports.
He was released on bond just hours before the charges were dropped.
"I respect President Obama," Curtis said to reporters. "I love my country and would never do anything to pose a threat to him or any other U.S. official.".
Authorities were reportedly searching another man's home in connection with the case. Last week, letters containing a substance that tested positive for ricin were sent to Obama, GOP Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and a state judge, the AP reports.Via Associated Press
