He might believe he’s too dangerous for prison, but Kyle Richards will be seeing more of it after he was sentenced to two to five years in prison for violating his probation, according to court records.

Richards was on probation for two counts of assaulting a prison employee when he robbed a bank in Fraser earlier this year. He admitted to the probation violation Thursday in front of Washtenaw Trial Court Judge David Swartz and received the maximum sentence of two to five years in prison, court records show.
Last month, Richards told Swartz that he was too dangerous for prison and was assaulting state workers as a form of “violent dissension.” It was another bizarre court move for Richards, who has also sued Gov. Rick Snyder and the state of Michigan for not allowing him to possess pornographic materials while in jail.
He cited cruel and unusual punishment as his main reason for wanting access to porn while incarcerated. The lawsuit was dismissed, according to court records.
Richards also is a member of the Sovereign Citizen Movement, a right-wing anarchist group that has been designated an “extremist anti-government” group by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The original conviction of assaulting a prison employee stems from a May 2009 incident where he assaulted a female employee at the Center for Forensic Psychiatry, according to court records.
He was sentenced to between three years and 20 years in prison for the Fraser bank robbery, according to state records.
