An Ohio man is in custody after being accused of sending about three-dozen feces-filled letters to lawmakers around the country, including Ohio’s 25 Republican state senators in early July. Officers arrested Richard Steinle, a former Common Pleas Court mediator. Steinle is charged with sending “injurious articles as nonmailable, violating a federal law that prohibits mailing certain things, including hazardous material, according to court records. The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum prison sentence of one year and a $100,000 fine. The feces mailed in early July…prompted an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, but investigators said Steinle has been sending such letters since August 2021 to elected officials in Washington D.C., Kentucky, California and Ohio.
