Wealthy horse owner jailed for having sexual relationship with a 15-year-old stable girl

James Richards, 61, preyed on her after inviting her to ride horses at his stables as her family could not afford one.

He got the girl to perform a sex act on him while he towed a horsebox on a motorway and groped her on lifts home.

A court heard Richards owned Dunton Stables, in Bodymoor Heath, Warks, and invited the girl to work over summer 2000. He was caught when she revealed the abuse after counselling in 2016.

Richards admitted four charges of indecent assault and two of indecency with a child.

He was jailed for two-and-a-half years at Warwick crown court. Judge Andrew Lockhart QC said: “There was planning, there was grooming and there was a significant disparity in age.”
