Ex-Pastor to face more charges

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV)-- The former pastor of a Lowcountry church is facing more sexual assault charges.

Officials say 46-year-old Dale Richardson will be served with warrants in Dorchester County on Thursday afternoon. Officials say the warrants are for two counts of criminal sexual conduct and two counts of kidnapping.

Richardson has been accused of three sexual assaults and multiple kidnappings.

A Bond hearing for the new charges will be held in Summerville on Thursday afternoon.

The 46-year-old Richardson is in the Charleston County jail on a $1 million bond in connection with two previous sexual assaults.

Authorities allege that in those incidents Richardson offered two women rides 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 at gunpoint.
