Paramedic arrested on charges of child exploitation
Placeholder Image

A Rincon paramedic was arrested and charged on Wednesday with sexual exploitation of children.

Richard Burton, 41, is now out on bond, according to Chuck Sullinger, assistant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The case will be sent to the district attorney for a grand jury indictment.

Sheriff Jimmy McDuffie requested assistance from the GBI on the case on March 21. The GBI and the Criminal Investigation Division of the sheriff’s office executed a search warrant at 100 Jennifer Circle in Rincon on March 28.

The case is still open and active, meaning officers cannot comment on it.
