Pinal Co. considers possible prosecution in imprisonment case

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson couple accused of holding three sisters captive could face additional charges in Pinal County.

Sophia and Fernando Richter are due in Pima County Superior Court Friday for arraignment on charges that they abused and imprisoned Sophia's 12-, 13- and 17-year-old daughters.

The two younger girls escaped from the family's midtown home late last month, but police say the family had only lived there since August.

Prosecutors say the majority of the crimes committed in the case happened at a home in Pinal County where the family spent the past two years.

The Pinal County Attorney says his office is reviewing the case reports for possible prosecution.
