Faces & names: ‘Walking Dead’ actress gets 18 years
Shannon Guess Richardson will have plenty of time to catch up on her correspondence in the next 18 years.
The 36-year-old actress received the maximum sentence as part of a plea deal, after she pleaded guilty to possessing and producing a biological toxin in December.
Richardson was charged in June. According to an arrest affidavit, she sent three letters containing the toxin ricin to President Obama and Bloomberg, as well as Mark Glaze, the former director of Bloomberg’s gun-control group.
