Oklahoma City man who wore diapers pleads guilty to sexual battery, outraging public decency

Oklahoma County District Judge Jerry Bass set sentencing for Mark Anthony Richardson II for July. Richardson's guilty plea to sexual battery and outraging public decency came during a two-day hiatus in his trial. He is accused of conning women into baby-sitting him and changing his diapers.

For the con, Richardson admitted he acted autistic. He also posed over the phone as his own father to arrange a baby-sitting job, police said.

He stayed overnight at times last September at one baby sitter's house, according to testimony at a preliminary hearing. He used a pacifier, drank baby formula and threw childlike fits, according to the testimony. The woman who watched him last September talked of reading him a bedtime story and rocking him to calm him.

Richardson is 4 feet 9 inches tall.

The sexual battery victim testified she was asleep when he grabbed her breast over her T-shirt during one of his overnight stays. She testified that, because she then thought he was autistic, she just told him not to do that.

His guilty plea came during a two-day hiatus in his trial. A jury was selected Monday. Testimony was to have begun Thursday.
