A Texas woman was indicted Friday on charges connected to ricin-laced letters sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Barack Obama.

A federal grand jury indicted Shannon Richardson on one count of threatening the president of the United States and two counts of sending a threatening letter.

The actress and mother of five was arrested two weeks after ricin was found in letters sent to President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg, and the director of the mayor's gun control group in Washington.

No one was hurt.

If convicted, she could serve up to 15 years in federal prison.
