Charges dropped in sexual assault case

Chad Lee Richter has seen charges against him relating to alleged sexual acts involving a young girl dropped.

Pahrump District Court Judge Kimberly Wanker said Wednesday that charges against Richter were dropped this week.

Why the charges have been dropped, or if they have dismissed completely could not be obtained by press time.

Richter was arrested March 21 for lewdness with a minor, digital rape, and child abuse after a Boulder City Police Department report stated he allegedly molested his girlfriend’s four-year-old daughter within the previous two years.

Richter told the Times on Thursday the story was fabricated by the ex-husband of his current girlfriend. Richter said he is considering pursuing legal action.

Richter is currently on probation/parole for violating the controlled substance act, according to the declaration of arrest.
