For sending threatening letters containing homemade ricin poison to then-President Donald Trump at the White House in 2020, a woman by the name of Pascale Ferrier was given a sentence of nearly 22 years in prison.

On X, she had also threatened Trump, asking for someone to “please shoot Trump in the face.”

Pascale Ferrier: Who is she?

The age of Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier is 56. She holds dual citizenship in France and Canada. She admitted guilt earlier this year to violating the ban on using biological weapons. She pleaded guilty to the crime of sending eight Texas state law enforcement officers, then-President Donald Trump, and highly dangerous ricin-laced letters. This information was released to the public on Thursday by the Justice Department.

The toxic substance-filled envelope, which was addressed to then-President Donald Trump, was discovered in the White House mail sorting facility in Washington in September 2020. According to an FBI affidavit filed at the time with the charge filings, the FBI was quickly alerted after receiving a tip from USPS employees who thought it was unusual.

Later, Ferrier acknowledged making the ricin—a poison made from leftovers from the processing of castor beans—on her own. She admitted placing the ricin and the ominous letter in the same envelope.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that, depending on the dosage, ricin poisoning can have fatal consequences and serious side effects. Death occurs 36 to 72 hours after exposure.

According to the Justice Department, she had previously served a total of 10 weeks in a Texas jail in 2019. At the time, she believed that law enforcement officers were to blame for her detention.
