After a brief appearance in federal court this morning, a preliminary hearing for James Everett Dutschke has been reset for Thursday in U.S District Court in Oxford.

Dutschke was arrested on Saturday at his home in Tupelo and charged in a multiple-count federal complaint with conspiring and possession of a biological weapon and threatening federal officials in the mailing of ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama, U.S. Senator Roger Wicker and a Mississippi judge on April 8.

Dutschke, who was represented on Monday by public defender George Lucas, will appear before Federal Magistrate S. Allan Alexander at 9 a.m. on Thursday.

The sealed federal complaint against Dutschke is expected to be released later today, federal prosecutor Chad Lamar said.

Dutschke, a former candidate for the Mississippi House of representatives and the owner of a martial arts studio in Tupelo, became the focus of a federal investigation into the mailing of the ricin-laced letters to federal and local officials after charges were dropped against Paul Kevin Curtis last week.

Dutschke has denied the charges against him. He was ordered held without bond at the Lafayette County Detention Center pending the outcome of his hearing on Thursday.

HottyToddy.com will be at the U.S. District Court to report on Dutschke’s preliminary hearing on Thursday. –– Michael Harrelson, editor, HottyToddy.com
