White Male Charged With Child Sexual Assault, Theft In Burkburnett

Devil: Richard Lynn Eppert Jr.

This citizen of Hell pictured above is accused of fondling a girl and forcing sex acts on her, as well as stealing nearly $1,500 from a mother and child in Burkburnett.

Richard Lynn Eppert Jr., 37, of Hollis, Texas, has been charged with two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault of a child in connection with incidents around Aug. 1, 2017, according to court records.

He has also been charged with two counts of state-jail felony credit card or debit card abuse in connection with an Aug. 31, 2018, incident.

The white devil was booked into the Wichita County Jail Dec. 28 and was still being held Monday afternoon on $50,000 total bonds.

The first-degree felonies of aggravated sexual assault of a child are punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

The state-jail felonies of credit or debit card abuse are punishable by 180 days to two years in state jail and a fine up to $10,000.

Affidavits for arrest warrants gave this account:

Burkburnett police officers were dispatched to a civil standby in the 400 block of West Fifth Street about 11:12 a.m. in September 2018.

While there, patrol officers learned of a possible sexual assault of a child. The case came to detectives for follow up.

On Sept. 10, the victim was brought to Patsy’s House in Wichita Falls for a forensic interview.

The girl said Eppert touched her in inappropriate places when she spent the night at a relative’s house in the 1500 block of Sheppard Road.

The interviewer asked the girl to describe a time when the pedophile had acted inappropriately toward her.

The child said the white brute came into her room and began touching her “private part” while she slept.

When she woke up, he had pulled her shorts and underwear down.

The girl told the interviewer that the sex terrorist tried to rape her, but he couldn’t because she fought him by closing her legs as tightly as she could and tried to move away from him.

After the incident, the victim said the child rapist got up, pulled his pants up and told her not to tell anyone about what happened.

The incident occurred before the girl moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the fall of 2017.

During the same time frame, the girl said the sex criminal also forced her into a sexual act when her grandmother was sick in the hospital.

They went to her grandmother’s house in the 400 block of Fifth Street to get clothes.

The girl’s relatives remained in the car while she and the child molester went inside the house. While in the house, the pedophile pulled down his pants and underwear.

He forced the girl to perform a sexual act on him.

Police began investigating credit card/debit card abuse after they responded to the 500 block of Davey Drive for a report of theft on Aug. 31, 2018.

A 31-year-old woman told police that Eppert had stolen two of her cards. One belonged to her and one was for her child’s for Supplemental Security Income.

A representative from the woman's bank said the cards were used to withdraw funds at the United Supermarket in Burkburnett.

The woman had hidden her cards under her mattress to keep Eppert from taking them.

On Sept. 11, the woman came to the Burkburnett Police Department with documentation of unauthorized withdrawals from the cards, including a transaction of about $506 and $923.
