If he is convicted he could face life in prison

Mississippi - FBI agents arrested James Everett Dutschke at his home early  Saturday morning. 

Dutschke is facing federal charges in connection to the ricin case. This comes after prosecutes dropped charges against the previous suspect on Tuesday. 

Paul Kevin Curtis, the Elvis impersonator, was the first man arrested for the crime and believes he was framed and said that Dutschke was the culprit.
