Town of Niagara Supervisor Steve Richards pleads not guilty to 28-count indictment

LOCKPORT — Town of Niagara Supervisor Steve Richard pled not guilty to a 28-count indictment Friday in Niagara County Court.

The indictment alleges various claims of public corruption and it appears most of the charges center on the theft of goods and services.

Some of the charges are felonies and some are misdemeanors. 

The indictment follows a more than 18-month long probe of the supervisor by agents from the New York State Attorney General’s Office and the FBI.

“He is resolute, that’s the way he is,” Richards’ defense attorney Rodney Personius said late Thursday afternoon. “He is prepared to defend himself.”
