A Memphis man has been charged with brutal crimes against two of his ex-girlfriends and the horrific abuse of the baby of one of them.
32-year-old Latherio Richard pleaded guilty to the shocking crimes.
The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Richard entered a plea of guilty to charges of aggravated child abuse, kidnapping, and aggravated burglary.
According to the statement, in March 2019, Richard’s then-girlfriend’s son was taken to the emergency room after suffering blisters on his feet and legs. Doctors reportedly determined the injuries were consistent with first- and second-degree burns “consistent with being immersed in hot water.”
The DA’s Office said Richard was babysitting the boy on the day the burns were discovered by medical personnel.
On January 28, 2018, Richard and his 22-year-old girlfriend reportedly were at a hotel on Shelby Oaks Drive when they got into an argument. Richard allegedly “pushed her head into a wall and refused to let her leave.”
Another incident reportedly occurred in the early hours of April 15, 2017. Richard reportedly went to his girlfriend’s apartment in Hickory Ridge to gather some of his personal items following their breakup. According to the statement, Richard “forced his way inside where he pushed and shoved the woman, causing her to fall and break her ankle.”
The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office said that after pleading guilty to the crimes, he was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

What gets into people now days? Why did this IDIOT burn the baby who was not able to defend itself? Tells us a lot about this quack as far as I’m concerned. Real brave picking on a defense baby. He absolutely deserves prison time.
Well we all know this would happen when Democrat politicians voted to legal drugs rights! People abusing drugs turn violent against other! Something that was never around in the 80’s ! Didn’t happen til Bill Clinton claimed he smoked Marijuana but didn’t INHALE IT! Funny how you can smoke a Mary Jane without sucking it to make it burn! So now you got people not trusting the government to keep their neighborhood safe! This guy deserves a beat down lot more worse than he gave these two women!
This is what drugs do to peoples’ minds that take them. My son is on drugs and he pepper sprayed his own kid for the Hell of it! His girlfriend had a baby with him and the baby is 6 months old. It is not safe!!! Parents on drugs are Unfit. And now with Fentanyl out there babies are dying because their parents are loaded and get careless, sloppy and abusive. This is our world now, our new reality, the reason we cannot sleep at night.
