The Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Obama and others pleads guilty in federal court today.

Federal authorities arrested 41-year-old James Dutschke last April. Investigators said he developed the deadly poison and sent it in letters to the president, a Senator, and a judge. No illnesses were reported from the letters.

Dutschke is expected to get 25 years in prison under the plea agreement. A judge will sentence him in about 60 days.
