Stuarts Draft Man Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Crimes

Posted: Updated:

A Stuarts Draft man will spend 17 years behind bars after admitting to a series of sex crimes. Richard Lee Poole pleaded guilty Tuesday to seven counts of aggravated sexual battery with a child younger than 13.

Poole, 48, was arrested in November after a relative of the victim reported the suspected abuse.

Augusta County investigators originally said Poole molested a 12-year-old girl in a home in the southern part of the county over a period of time.
