Smithfield, N.C. — A 4-year-old girl remained in critical condition Sunday, two days after she was hospitalized for injuries suffered in what Johnston County authorities described as torture.
The girl's mother is at her side at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, said Tammy Amaon, a spokeswoman for the Johnston County Sheriff's Office.
The girl's mother had left her with Jonathan Douglas Richardson, 21, of Old Sanders Road in Smithfield, while she underwent military training.

#JonathanRichardson defense: "Today we are not asking for forgiveness or leniency ...Instead, today, we're asking for mercy."
I am very relieved he is that special kind of stupid. He might have gotten away with everything he did if he just made her disappear.
:doh: I misunderstood you. Do you mean the video of Teghan? I haven't seen it posted yet. WRAL has pt one and pt 2 but those are before the video of Teghan.
That's what I thought he was implying...he is truly a sick,sadistic POS.
Mercy my a**!!! He deserves no more mercy than he gave Teghan. In my opinion the needle is too quick, too merciful for him.
Oh I totally agree... just wondering what HE could have been thinking.
I can't think of a single mitigator. Can anyone think of one?
Thanks---that was what my question was. I didn't know if there were other parts not posted yet.... :seeya:
Nope, I can't think of one either! :snooty:
Neither can I, Linda. Did he think, as we all have already discussed, that she could actually be "fixed"? If so, he is way more warped & cruel than is imaginable -- did he think he had only hurt her a little? No big deal -- put casts on her arms, stitch up her head, maybe some blood, and a pain pill. She'll be good as new when her mom gets back.
Yes, she was a tuff little girl, but what he did was way beyond just tuff. <smh>
I have it here:
Damnn I thought that was a horse.
I'm agnostic leaning towards atheist. That doesn't mean I don't have a spiritual side to me. But cases like this only reinforce my own type of spirituality. The Earth is my mother, my belief system, more Native American type beliefs. :moo:
I hate it when defense attorneys try to "guilt" jurors. :maddening:
IIRC once one of the nurses confronted him--he dashed towards the door. I think he truly felt he could get away with her falling off the bed---
Maybe it could go down along the lines of how Gerard Butler took care of the lethal injection of his wife/daughter's murderer in Law Abiding Citizen...that didn't end quite as gently as JR's may.
I don't think I heard the defense say JR was sorry. I am really disgusted that he is comparing sentencing this waste of air to death and what he did to Teghan is the same "darkness".
