    LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (Reuters) -- An Arkansas lawyer and his son will soon be heading to prison after pleading guilty to mailing a threatening communication -- a poisonous snake.

    Bob Sam Castleman, an attorney and former city judge in Pocahontas, Arkansas, and his son, Jerrod, were charged with mailing a cardboard box containing a venomous copperhead snake to a neighbor with whom they had feuded. The two pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday.

    Not a chance! I love my lawyer... about 10 years ago she made me a very wealthy woman... not a money worry for the rest of my life (or my daughter's... or her childrens.. (if she has some) and so on and so on)

    Acutally my lawyer is a 'little person' I guess is the politically correct term.. (a midget) but my goodness what a fighter she is and what spirit she has.

    She is amazing, the first time I met her I was taken aback, I had spoken to her on the phone but had no idea about her size.

    Good things come in small packages ~ she has had an uphill battle her whole like, she is very frank about discussing it - it was interesting when she told me many times she is not taken seriously (at first) in the court room but by the end of the day she is taller than anyone inthe room - [​IMG]

    She is an amazing woman although the people I took to court may think she is a snake.... [​IMG]

    I however, am forever in her debt. [​IMG]

    That wasn't the end of the Castlemans' misadventures. A feature article from April 2015 paints the bigger picture:
