By Prison Legal News

Carbon Hill Mayor James “Pee Wee” Richardson, 61, was arrested on September 19, 2013 on multiple charges related to sexually abusing four prisoners at the city’s municipal jail; he was released eight days later after posting a $250,000 property bond.  In addition to the criminal charges, Richardson faces a civil lawsuit filed by a former prisoner who claims he took her into his office and groped her.  The civil suit includes 11 counts of alleged wrongdoing by Richardson or the city, and seeks compensatory, statutory, and punitive damages as well as attorney’s fees.
