In addition to the attempted murder of a sitting United States District Judge, the indictment also charges Richardson with federal firearm offenses involving the possession and discharge of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. The indictment also charges Richardson with failure to attend court hearings and making numerous false statements to the FBI and his supervising probation officer. Finally, the indictment alleges that Richardson impersonated a captain in the United States Navy. In total, the indictment charges Richardson with committing 25 separate federal offenses. If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison. The indictment also notifies Richardson that the United States intends to forfeit a Savage Arms .30-06 rifle and Winchester ammunition used during the attempted murder. According to the indictment and court records, Judge Corrigan previously convicted and sentenced Richardson for attempting to make an incendiary device in a 2008 case. Following incarceration for that crime, Richardson was serving a term of supervised release. Beginning in 2012, Richardson made a number of false statements to his probation officer about new arrests and new criminal court appearances in Clay, Duval, and Volusia Counties. On January 30, 2013, Richardson appeared in federal court on a petition alleging his violation of supervised release for committing new crimes. Richardson was released with conditions that day.

United States Steel Corporation : U. S. Steel Introduces ACRYLUME E PLUS™ as New Member of the ACRYLUME® Family
Steel Introduces ACRYLUME E PLUS as New Member of the ACRYLUME Family 09/30/2013 | 02:10pm US/Eastern Recommend: 0 PITTSBURGH, Sept. 30, 2013/ PRNewswire / — United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) is pleased to announce the addition of a new high-quality, value-added product to our lineup of construction steels that supports green building design and practices, positively impacting these projects’ environmental sustainability. ACRYLUME E PLUS Coated Steel Sheet, a new coated flat-rolled steel that has a chromium-free clear emissive polymer coating, provides all of the quality and performance attributes inherent of ACRYLUME with improved thermal emittance. U. S. Steel’s new ACRYLUME E PLUS offers the environmentally conscious metal building construction industry a chromium-free emissive acrylic coating on GALVALUME Coated Steel Sheet, which is designed to meet challenging solar reflectance and thermal emittance regulations. Prior to the introduction of this product, the emissivity requirements could only be met through pre-painted GALVALUME products. ACRYLUME E PLUS also meets numerous European Union environmental directives including Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH). The original ACRYLUME, which meets all current environmental guidelines in the United States, will continue to be available to customers for commonly used applications such as metal roofing and siding. The new ACRYLUME E PLUS provides users with the same benefits as traditional ACRYLUME. ACRYLUME set the standard for enhancing the outstanding corrosion protection of GALVALUME Coated Steel Sheet by sealing it in a tough, clear polymer coating. As with ACRYLUME and ACRYLUME CF, ACRYLUME E PLUS also minimizes staining and discoloration issues during storage, handling and installation, and both products can be used in the same end-use applications. In addition, neither product requires the application of lubricants prior to roll forming, thus they can be delivered to a job site free from slippery substances, providing customers with increased safety during handling and installation.
