Deputy Randal Richter
Agg Murder, Burglary,
Grand Theft, B&E
Minimum/ Maximum Sentence:
early morning hours on Thursday May 22, 1975 the Montgomery
County Ohio Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a suspicious
vehicle parked in front of a home in a residential neighborhood.
The dispatcher reported the call to Deputy Sheriff Randal
arrived at the scene and radioed the license
plate number in to the sheriff's office. Deputy Richter then
got out of his cruiser and walked over to the driver side window
of the vehicle. As
the drive side window he was shot at point blank range in the
face. The suspect then fled the scene.
A civilian, who likely
heard the shot, walked outside and found Deputy Richter
on the ground a few yards away from the vehicle. His gun was
still in his holster. The civilian used Deputy Richter's
to call the Sheriff's office and reported that Deputy Richter
had been shot. Deputy Richter was rushed
the hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival.
Deputy Richter had served with the Montgomery County Sheriff's
Office for 18 months.
Police determined the
license plate number called in by Deputy Richter before he
was shot belonged to Donald Green. Green was on parole after
a robbery conviction.
was arrested and charged with the murder of Deputy Richter.
Green admitted he shot Deputy Richter however he stated the
gun went off accidentally when he tried to throw it out the
window. He told authorities he threw the gun in a river.
who likely realized no jury would believe his implausible
to avoid the death penalty. He received a mandatory
sentence of life in prison.
Donald Green brutally
murdered Deputy Sheriff Randal Richter for absolutely no reason.
Deputy Richter did not even have time to reach for his gun.
Green then left Deputy Richter to die alone in the street.
In addition, Green was on parole when he shot Deputy Richter
blood. Releasing Donald Green would be a slap in the face to
the Richter family and would deny justice for Deputy Sheriff
Randal Richter. We believe placing Inmate Green back on the
streets would create a
serious risk for law enforcement and the community. Based on
these facts, and the fact Donald Green murdered Deputy Randal
Richter in the line of duty, we believe Donald Green should
sentence of LIFE in prison for his brutal, senseless crime.
