SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A 46-year-old Ladson pastor accused of abducting and sexually assaulting two women has been denied bond for a kidnapping incident in Summerville.
Authorities say Dale Richardson was denied bond for first-degree assault and kidnapping charges.
A Summerville police incident report states that Richardson picked up a woman on June 21, drove her to a dirt road near The Lakes of Summerville subdivision and propositioned her for sex at gunpoint.
Richardson is also accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a woman last month and was charged with a similar case that happened last year in North Charleston.
The North Charleston Police Department and the Summerville Police Department charged Richardson with kidnapping/abduction and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
He was given a total bond of $1,050,000 in those two cases.
