Clovis Police Detectives arrested 55 year-old Richard Bradberry of Clovis yesterday, July 10, 2019. Charges included two counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child 14 years-old or younger, and one count of oral copulation with a child under the age of 14, where the perpetrator is at least 10 years older than the victim(s).
