Lowcountry pastor faces more assault charges

Aug 18, 2011 4:10:00 AM - thestate.com
Additional charges of kidnapping and criminal sexual conduct are being filed against a Lowcountry pastor.

Dorchester County Sheriff's Maj. John Garrison says two warrants charging Dale Richardson are being served on Thursday, when a bond hearing is set in Summerville.

The 46-year-old preacher will now face charges stemming from the sexual assaults of four women as well as a fifth kidnapping charge where there was no assault.

In two of the incidents, authorities allege Richardson offered prostitutes a ride and then drew a gun, bound them and covered their heads. He is accused of taking them to a trailer behind his Ladson church where they were assaulted.

His public defender says it's too early to comment on the case but may have a statement later.
