A woman from Mills, Wyoming has made her initial appearance in United States District Court in Casper on three charges including sending an envelope with an unknown white powder to the Sheridan County Courthouse just before Christmas. 39-year-old Jennifer Casebolt could spend 15 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
The old portion of the Sheridan County Courthouse was shut down on December 22nd when an employee in the Clerk of Circuit Court’s office opened an envelope and a white powder spilled out. The letter was postmarked in Casper and handwriting on the envelope was compared to writing on lawsuit documents filed by Casebolt in Sheridan County in October.
In addition to the charges relating to the Courthouse incident, Casebolt also is charged with threatening the life of United States Representative Cynthia Lummis. Casebolt allegedly left the death threats on December 10th on a voicemail intended for Wyoming’s lone delegate to the House of Representatives.
