| August 15, 2011

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) – Investigators said Wednesday that a 46-year-old Ladson pastor charged with kidnapping and sexual assault, raped one of the female victims in a trailer located on the grounds of his own church.

Dale Richardson was in court Wednesday to face a rape charge stemming from a July 27 incident. He is accused of kidnapping three women and sexually assaulting one of them. He was denied bond for rape Wednesday.

An hour after Richardson's bond hearing Wednesday, a church member at Freedom Free Will Baptist Church, was outside working on the front marquee. He was scraping Richardson's name from it. The man said Richardson is no longer the church's pastor.

According to court papers, Richardson forced the victim to perform oral sex and then raped her. Dorchester County investigators say more charges are pending against the pastor. The victim identified Richardson from online pictures.
