SAN ANTONIO -

Ronald Richards, 74, is accused of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl over an extended period of time, by showing her pornography, fondling her and engaging in sexual intercourse with her.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that the girl made the outcry to San Antonio police on Jan. 30.

However, it indicates that the alleged crimes date back to May of last year.

The affidavit stated that the 8-year-old told police that someone had given Richards a black eye about a year ago after he was caught touching her inappropriately.

She said since then, he has continued to fondle her, show her pornographic videos on the computer and have sex with her, the affidavit stated.

Police said the girl was also able to provide detailed information about Richards’ body and private parts, the affidavit stated.

Investigators later questioned Richards, who they said denied doing anything wrong.

The affidavit stated that he also refused to submit to a physical exam that was part of the investigation.

Detectives obtained a warrant to conduct the tests, the affidavit stated.

Richards was arrested Thursday on a charge of continuous sexual assault of a child. Bond for Richards was set at $100,000.
