Sup Travellers?! The Zombie apocalypse may not be upon us but zombies are apparently already trying to kill President Obama.

According to reports from the Independent and CNN, Shannon Guess Richardson was officially sentenced this week to 18 years in prison, as well as a fine of $367,000 for reportedly mailing three letters to President Obama containing small amounts of ricin.

The 36-year-old Texan actress was best known for making minor acting appearances on The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries and in The Blind Side. 

She was arrested back in June 2013 after she posted letters to the President, the then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg as well as being a gun control advocate but she blamed all the crimes on her husband. However, the FBI eventually discovered she was almost certainly behind the whole thing and may have fabricated some evidence to make him look guilty. Richardson eventually pled guilty and was officially sentenced this week.

“I never intended for anybody to be hurt,” she told the court. “I'm not a bad person. I don't have it in me to hurt anyone.”

The Center for Diseases Control and Prevention specifies that, if inhaled, ricin can cause respiratory failure, among other symptoms. If swallowed, it can shut down the liver and other organs, resulting in death. 

Richardson's acting career never really blew up but the little appearances that she made in major TV shows and films could have given her enough recognition to get some leading roles. However, all that has now been flushed down the toilet along with her 18 years of freedom. I really don't think that she thought everything through too well. By the way, Richardson played a zombie on The Walking Dead. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
