A federal grand jury has charged an Albertville woman with sending two fake anthrax letters to the local Social Security Administration.
Charged was Michelle Holladay Ryder, 43, according to U.S. Attorney Joyce White in Birmingham. Ryder faces two counts of mailing a letter containing a powdery substance and a note to someone at the Albertville Social Security Administration. The powder did not test positive for any biological hazards.
The maximum sentence for each count of sending hoax anthrax letters is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
