Connecticut Man Subjected Teenage Boy to Sexual Contact, Police Say


A Connecticut man is facing multiple felonies following an investigation. 

In March 2017, State Police partnered with the Dutchess County Child Advocacy Center to investigate a sexual offense reported to the New York State Office of Children and Family Services Child Abuse Hotline.

Richard B. Spring, 50, of New Fairfield, Connecticut was arrested and charged with four counts of Criminal Sex Act, a felony and four counts Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Subsequent to a detailed investigation, it was discovered that Spring subjected a teenage boy under the age of 17 to sexual contact. The victim was exposed to the sexual contact on multiple dates at a residence in the Town of Pawling.

The defendant is also accused of offering the victim alcohol and marijuana.

Additionally, Spring was stopped by police and found to operating his vehicle under the influence of drugs. He was charged with Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs.

Spring was arraigned in the Town of Pawling Justice Court and remanded to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail, or $50,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing and State Police believe that there may be additional victims. Anyone with additional information regarding Spring is asked to call State Police at (845) 677-7300. All calls can remain confidential
