Former Cop indicted for child molestation

August 24, 2005

Albany -- A former Albany Police Officer is indicted by the Grand Jury for molesting a 14 year old girl.

28 year old Darius Richardson is charged with for five crimes, including Aggravated Child Molestation and violation of Oath of Office.

Prosecutors say in May he had sex with the 14 year old, who was caught by Dawson Police driving Richardson's personal car. The Albany Police suspended Richardson with pay days later. He officially resigned Tuesday.

The Dougherty Grand jury also issued a new indictment against a 67- year old Albany man already charged in a car crash that killed a 19 year old expectant mother and her unborn baby.

 In January Arnold Gray was indicted on charges of vehicular homicide and fetacide by vehicle.

Now he's also charged with D-U-I. Prosecutors say Gray was drinking September 15th before he crashed his truck into Kristy Tullis' car at the intersection of Palmyra and Schley roads.

The 19-year old and her unborn son died the next day.

 If convicted Gray could face more than 25 years in prison.
