NEW YORK (Reuters) – A 19-year-old New York woman has been charged with drugging a teenage girl and raping her after having sex with the girl in the country’s south and allegedly posting the incident on Facebook, authorities said.
The New York County District Attorney’s office said on Wednesday it charged Adria Richards, a New York University student, with first-degree rape, first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct, first and second degree criminal sexual abuse and two counts of kidnapping, the New York Daily News reported.
The charges stem from the Oct. 30 incident, which happened in a Queens neighborhood.
Richards allegedly met the girl at a McDonalds restaurant.
She drove to a hotel room where they had sex, prosecutors said.
She allegedly then returned to the hotel room and made the girl perform oral sex on her.
Richards has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, the Daily News said.
Authorities have not released the identity of the girl, whose name is being withheld.
Richmonds was arrested in New Jersey on Wednesday.
The New York Police Department declined to release the girl’s name or provide a description of her or her whereabouts, the newspaper said.
Police said Richards has a criminal history in New York state dating back to 2013.
