Lawyers for a Harford County teenager charged with killing his father last year say they have evidence that two other juveniles were involved in the man's death. At a hearing in Bel Air on Friday, lawyers for Robert C. Richardson III told Harford County Circuit Judge Stephen Waldron that they are seeking information on the two juveniles, including their criminal histories and school records. The 17-year-old Richardson, who lived in Bel Air, is charged as an adult in the death of his father, Robert C. Richardson Jr., in January 2012.

Anyone concerned by the use of solitary confinement in Maryland should look at what happens to juveniles charged as adults in Harford County ( "Isolated confinement," March 31). These kids are all held in either isolation (24-hour lockdown) or segregation (23-hour lockdown) for months or even years on end. Robert Richardson spent 10 months in isolation, followed by 14 months in segregation. One has to wonder if these kids take plea deals, at least in part, to escape the rigors of isolated confinement.

Lawyers for a Harford County teen accused of killing his father last year attempted to convince a judge Friday that it would be unconstitutional to try the 17-year-old as an adult. Robert C. Richardson III's attorneys also said the boy is suffering from the effects of isolation at the county jail, asking at a motions hearing for their client to be transferred to a facility for juveniles. They said he is being held in solitary confinement at the Harford County Detention Center. "The jail in Harford County does not have the capability to address the needs of juvenile offenders and juvenile inmates," lawyer Kay Beehler said at a hearing Friday in Harford County Circuit Court.

Sitting on a bench toward the rear of a Harford County courtroom Tuesday was a row of well-dressed women determined to send Robert C. Richardson III a message: They've got his back. The four Bel Air women say they're part of a network of support building for the teen, who police say confessed to the Jan. 9 killing of his father. Tuesday, the 16-year-old, represented by a public defender, waived his right to a preliminary hearing and was immediately swept back into custody. The women say they want to pay for a private lawyer to represent Richardson on the first- and second-degree murder charges he faces.

The trial for a 17-year-old Bel Air teen accused of killing his father has been postponed for a second time until May. Robert C. Richardson III is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death Jan. 9 of his father. Richardson, who has been held without bail for nearly a year, is charged as an adult. The trial was postponed when Richardson's lawyer, Marc G. Snyder, turned the case over to the state's public defender's office. Snyder, who had accepted the case pro bono, said the case became too expensive for him to continue.
