Ricin Letter sent to White House in 2003 - FBI Press release
  • Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, a dual citizen of Canada and France, has been sentenced to 262 months in prison for sending threatening letters containing homemade ricin to the White House, former President Donald J. Trump, and eight Texas State law enforcement officials.
  • Ferrier pleaded guilty to prohibitions with respect to biological weapons in two separate criminal cases. She admitted to making ricin at her residence in Quebec, Canada, and placing it in envelopes containing threatening letters addressed to President Trump and law enforcement officials.
  • The letters contained threatening language, and the one addressed to then-President Trump instructed him to withdraw his application for the election. Ferrier mailed the letters from Canada to the U.S. She was arrested at the Peace Bridge Border Crossing in Buffalo, N.Y., in possession of a loaded firearm and other weapons.
  • In addition to the prison term, Ferrier was sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and will be removed from the U.S. at the end of her imprisonment.  Read More
