MAN GETS 10 YEARS FOR IMPREGNATING STEPDAUGHTER
Sidney Ray Richardson, a 53 year old Montgomery County man, was sentenced to 10 years in prison yesterday for impregnating his 14 year old stepdaughter. The girl became pregnant after a judge allowed Richardson to move back into the girl's home following his release from jail for sexually abusing her when she was 9 and 10. Richardson pleaded guilty in December to a third degree sex offense. Prosecutors said he had sex with the girl while she was drunk and while he was on probation for sexually abusing her as a child. In 2002 Richardson went missing after his probation officer confronted him about taking a paternity test to see whether he had fathered his stepdaughter's baby girl. He was arrested in June 2004 on a fugitive warrant.
