Whereas, Senator Richter is married to the former Anne Claire Welch with whom he has three children: Alice Anne, Claire Ellen, and Anna Elizabeth; and
Whereas, Senator Richter graduated from Bishop England High School in 1964, from the University of North Carolina in 1968, and from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1971; and
Whereas, Senator Richter served as a Family Court Judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit from 1980 to 1982; and
Whereas, Senator Richter served as a Circuit Court Judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit from 1982 to 1988; and
Whereas, Senator Richter has maintained a successful law practice since he left the judiciary; and
