    The plot began as a sinister bid for revenge, prosecutors said, a failed murder attempt by a spurned lover worthy of a made-for-TV movie...

    That was apparent Monday as dozens packed a Doylestown courtroom and watched Helman, 20, receive a prison sentence of 20 to 40 years for a laundry list of crimes, including attempted murder and risking a catastrophe...

    Helman previously pleaded guilty to lacing a scratch-and-sniff birthday card with a lethal dose of homemade ricin in March 2014. At one point, he considered using a cigarette.

    After sealing the envelope, Helman walked several miles from Hatboro to the family home of Jake Palm in Warminster and placed the card in the mailbox.
