Brian Pfefferle had been representing Totchek after she was initially charged last fall for sending five suspicious packages to various locations in the city.

He had to step away after his office received a suspicious package in March.

Totchek was then represented by Morris Bodnar, but he withdrew from the case a few weeks later.

Her third lawyer, Lisa Watson, withdrew from the case last week due to a conflict of interest.

She is scheduled to be back in court by video on May 30.

The threats and white powder scares have cost the city tens of thousands of dollars.
