A white pastor was convicted of incest after he raped his 14 year-old adopted daughter then stripped her bed in an attempt to hide any incriminating evidence. David Richards was convicted of nine felony sex assault counts over the abuse he inflicted on Amber Richards, who waived her right to anonymity to speak out against him. Jurors believed Amber’s account of how the diabolical white pedophile – a minister at My Father’s House Church of God in Lenoir city, Tennessee – began to touch her inappropriately in 2011, three years after he began fostering her and her three biological siblings.
The sex terrorist, who went on to adopt Amber and her sister Megan, then went on to rape Amber at his home in East Knox County, Tennessee, with the terrified youngster pretending to sleep through all the attacks. She told jurors: ‘I didn’t want to see him, I didn’t want to open my eyes. I just wanted it to be over.’
Amber told a school guidance counsellor of the abuse she had suffered in December 2013 aged 16, and directed detectives towards places in her room where they might find her father’s semen stains. A search warrant was executed two days later, with Knox County Sheriff’s Office investigator Lt Allen Merritt disturbed to discover Amber’s bed ‘completely stripped.’ He said that discovery ‘kind of set off bells and whistles,’ with none of the other beds in the home disturbed the same way.
Despite the child rapist’s attempts to destroy any evidence of his abuse, detectives still obtained traces of spermatozoa from a bed frame drawer, with subsequent tests establishing a DNA link to him. Cops also seized Richards and Amber’s iPhones, and discovered both had been wiped and returned to their factory settings. Amber says the monster once texted her to ask about taking their relationship ‘to the next level.’ Richards, who also worked in a children’s care home, unsuccessfully denied claims of sex abuse. He tried to portray himself as a single dad struggling to parent his family ‘as best I could’ after being dumped by his wife. The beast now lives with Amber’s sister Megan, who also works as an office assistant at his transport business. Amber, who is now 21, bravely told Knox News how she refuses to let her father’s attacks define her, saying: ‘I’m not going to let him ruin my life. ‘You can’t keep me down…I will keep fighting. “He messed with the wrong girl.’
