Former Philadelphia divorce lawyer accused of raping woman after ‘inciting a sexual assault’

A former Philadelphia divorce attorney accused of rape has been arrested after he allegedly made sexual advances toward a woman in his office and assaulted her while she was handcuffed and naked, police said.

Philadelphia police said in a news release on Monday that they arrested Richard “Dickie” Jones on Monday after a complaint from the woman, who also is the mother of his two daughters.

The 52-year-old, who is a divorce lawyer with offices in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, allegedly told the woman he “liked the idea of doing some anal” with her, according to the police statement.

The woman told police Jones repeatedly asked her if he was serious, and she told him she was not sure he was.

Jones allegedly told her that she could leave the office if she wanted to, according the police release.

After the alleged assault, the woman went to the office to report the alleged incident to the attorney general’s office, police told The Associated Press.

The attorney general did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the AP.

The AP could not independently verify the allegation.

Jones, who has been the lead attorney in the Philadelphia divorce case since 2014, has pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual abuse of a minor.

He was arraigned on Monday and released on his own recognizance.

He was charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault on a minor, a misdemeanor, and two counts of unlawful use of electronic devices to harass.

He is due in court on April 19.

Jones is accused of inviting a woman to his office in September 2014, after she told a group of friends she was having an abortion.

A woman told investigators that Jones said she wanted “some anal” and “I liked the idea,” the statement said.

Jones allegedly invited the woman to come into his office.

She told him that she was going to go to the restroom and “he asked if I wanted some anal.”

He asked her again and she said yes, police reported.

The alleged assault occurred while the woman was handcuffed to a chair, the statement continued.

The Associated Press did not have details on the woman’s injuries, but police said she suffered cuts and bruises.

Jones was not identified because he is on a bail of $5 million.

He had no prior criminal record.

He did not respond to an AP request for an interview.
