GREEN BAY — A
University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh student accused of possessing the
deadly toxin ricin is expected to make his first appearance in
Kyle Smith is due in court in Green Bay Monday where a judge
should decide whether there's enough evidence to continue with the
case against him.
Smith is a danger to the public due to his history of drug use and
mental health issues.
attorney William Kerner argues that although Smith is being
treated for depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, he is
not a danger to the public because there's no proof he planned to
hurt anyone with the ricin.
Smith has been
suspended from the university pending the outcome of his case.
