Curtis appears in court

Paul Kevin Curtis, the man accused of sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and other leaders, appeared in court late Thursday morning before U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Allan Alexander for his first-appearance hearing with his court-appointed attorney Christi McCoy. Curtis is being charged with knowingly using the U.S. Postal Service to inflict harm upon the President of the United States and knowingly using the U.S. Postal Service to inflict injury on other people. If convicted, he could face up to 15 years in prison, $500,000 in fines and three years of supervised release.
Alexander scheduled a preliminary bond hearing for 3 p.m. Friday in the U.S. District Court in Oxford.
The government is requesting Curtis be held without bond because they believe he is a “danger to the community.”
