Larry E. Richardson

    A jury trial entered its second day Thursday in Blaine County 5th District Court for a Burley man accused of felony domestic battery following an altercation with his ex-wife earlier this year in Bellevue.
    Larry E. Richardson, 52, was charged with the crime for allegedly breaking his ex-wife’s nose and causing other injuries during an altercation at the woman’s home on North Third Street in Bellevue on the morning of Jan. 21. A probable-cause affidavit filed in the case by the Bellevue Marshal’s Office states that Richardson and the woman were divorced in 2011 but that Richardson was staying at her home when the altercation occurred.
    Richardson is also charged with the misdemeanor crime of intentional interference with a 911 emergency call. He pleaded not guilty to both charges at his arraignment in April in Blaine County 5th District Court.
    Following his arrest in January, Richardson has remained free on $2,500 bond. He is represented by Hailey attorney Douglas Nelson.
