Famous actress is jailed for trying to POISON Barack Obama


Shannon Guess Richardson, who starred in The Vampire Diaries as well as opposite Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side, has been jailed for trying to poison Barack Obama.

The actress is accused of sending letters laced with ricin to both the President of the United States and the then mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, last June.

The letter to Obama read: “You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face.”

She has now received a sentence of 18 years in prison.

She has since stated: “I never intended for anybody to be hurt. I’m not a bad person. I don’t have it in me to hurt anyone.”
