CAMPTON –– Richard Tuck, 58, owner of Rocky River Ranch, pleaded guilty on September 8, 2023, to two counts of sexual assault and indirect criminal contempt of court, involving the sexual harassment of his juvenile employees without their consent.
These charges, all class A misdemeanors, were filed in the 2nd Circuit District Division Plymouth Court.
Tuck’s guilty plea also saw him withdrawing an appeal from a prior sexual assault conviction. He was convicted in January 2023 following a bench trial for having sexual contact with an employee without their consent.
Tuck’s sentence includes consecutive 12-month terms in the House of Corrections, suspended for two years on the condition of good behavior.
He will receive credit for time already served. As part of the sentence, Tuck is required to register as a tier one sex offender.
He is banned from having anyone under 18 on his property and unsupervised contact with minors outside of the Rocky River Ranch for a period of two years.
