Former News Director / Pimp Pleads Guilty

Back in August, FTVLive FIRST told you that former NBC Producer and News Director Bob Richardson was arrested in Arizona for running a house of prostitution. 

Police say Richardson "modified his bedroom into a massage studio where the erotic massages would take place."

Police claim Richardson's gig was to get male masseuses that he would hire to perform sex acts on male clients in exchange for money.

It now appears, according to court documents that Richardson has plead guilty to the charge. 

The former KMSB News Director is due back in court next week to accept the plea deal. Not sure what that means on jail time, but we're guessing he should be out in time for the May book. You know....just in case your station is looking for a new ND. 

Hey....if you can pimp sex, you can pimp news, we always say.
