August 22, 2008: "Teri Hatcher's Abuser Dies In Jail From Colon Cancer"
Teri Hatcher's abuser has died in jail. Richard Hayes Stone was six years into a 14-year sentence when he passed away from colon cancer at the age of 70.
Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Chuck Gillingham, who prosecuted Stone, said: "It closes the book on a very, very sad tragedy. Unfortunately those who are still alive will always suffer from his actions."
In 2002, Teri came forward about the abuse she suffered as a child from Stone after reading about teenager Sarah Van Cleemput, who shot herself in the head leaving behind a note that said: "You're probably thinking a normal teenager doesn't do this - well, ask Dick!"
The note referred to Stone, a friend of Sarah's family.
According to Gillingham, Teri - who was seven years old when she was abused by the then-husband of her mother's sister - almost canceled making her statement and only relented after contemplating her feelings if her own daughter Emerson Rose, now 10, was abused.
The District Attorney said in 2006: "When we went to interview her, she almost canceled. But she had with her daughter that morning and was thinking if, God forbid, something happened to her daughter that someone would come forward and do the right thing."
Teri, 43, later revealed she worried she would be portrayed as a publicity-seeking has-been actress if her ordeal came out in the media.
She said: "At the end of the day, there was no way I was not going to put this girl first, before whatever damage might be done to me."
Stone pleaded guilty upon seeing the actress' statement, meaning she did not have to go to court.

Teri Hatcher biography (bio):
Teri Lynn Hatcher is an Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning American actress and author. She gained attention for her role as Lois Lane in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman co-starring with Dean Cain. Hatcher is also well-known for portraying Susan Mayer, in Desperate Housewives, an accident-prone divorcee. She is also a "Bond Girl", having played Paris Carver in Tomorrow Never Dies in 1997.
Hatcher was born to parents Owen and Esther Hatcher in Palo Alto, California, and grew up in Sunnyvale, California. Her father is an electrical engineer and her mother is a computer scientist. An only child, she attended Mango Junior High (now Sunnyvale Middle School), Fremont High School in Sunnyvale and De Anza College in Cupertino.
In March 2006, Hatcher revealed to Vanity Fair that she was sexually abused from the age of five by Richard Hayes Stone, an uncle by marriage who was later divorced by Hatcher's aunt. Her parents, she said, were unaware of the abuse at the time. In 2002, she assisted Santa Clara County prosecutors in indicting Stone for a more recent molestation that led his female victim to commit suicide at the age of 14. Stone pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. In an interview appearing in Vanity Fair, Hatcher said she told the prosecutors about her own abuse because she was haunted by thoughts of the 14-year-old girl who shot herself, and feared Stone might escape conviction.
In June 2007 Hatcher appeared on the Paul O'Grady show where she revealed that she writes a column in Glamour.
Hatcher began her performing career as a young girl taking ballet lessons at the San Juan Girls' Ballet Studio in downtown Los Altos, California. She later studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater. One of her early jobs (in 1984) was as a cheerleader with the San Francisco 49ers. During this time she also appeared as one of the mermaids on the show The Love Boat in its final season.
Hatcher landed a co-starring role in 1993, opposite Dean Cain, in Lois and Clark. Her role proved to be the best move to gain the attention of audiences, and the one role she had most fallen in love with. While probably most noted for playing Lois Lane in the TV series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993-1997), Hatcher has also appeared in such feature films as Spy Kids (2001), the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, Dead in the Water (1991), 2 Days in the Valley (1996), "The Cool Surface" (1994) and Heaven's Prisoners (1996). The last two films featured Hatcher's only on-screen nude scenes, but neither did well at the box office. The ABC had cancelled Lois & Clark in 1997, and Hatcher was very disappointed about the show's demise. She was also desperate in looking for work. She has made a guest appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation and had a recurring role on MacGyver as Penny Parker, a naïve, high-strung, young woman who always seemed to get into trouble.
She also had a guest appearance in an episode of Seinfeld, in which her character, Sidra, broke up with Jerry because she found out Jerry was trying to have Elaine surreptitiously determine whether Sidra had breast implants. In one of the more memorable lines in the show, she declared, "Oh, and by the way: they're real, and they're spectacular."
Hatcher has also appeared in a series of popular Radio Shack television commercials alongside NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long. The pair remain close friends, and together have bought farm land on the outside of Los Angeles, with the intent of eventually raising endangered species. Hatcher said her plan to do so came about after reading an article featuring the world's top 25 endangered species.
She hosted Saturday Night Live in 1996.
In 1997, Hatcher was voted "Sexiest Woman in the World" by the readers of FHM.
Hatcher beat out four other actresses for the lead role on ABC's Desperate Housewives, on which she stars as single mother Susan Mayer, a role for which she won the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Golden Globe Award in January 2005. In 2005, Hatcher also won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award in the same category. In July 2005, she was nominated for an Emmy Award as Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the same role, along with co-stars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, who won the award.
As of April 2006, Hatcher is one of the highest paid television actresses in the United States. She reportedly earns $285,000 per episode of Desperate Housewives. In May 2006, she released her first book, Burnt Toast: And Other Philosophies of Life. In conjunction with the book, she has also launched a line of apparel and merchandise. Furthermore she is prominently featured in an international campaign for Repeat Cashmere.
Between 1985 and 1988, she had a relationship with her MacGyver costar Richard Dean Anderson. Hatcher married Marcus Leithold on June 4, 1988; they divorced the following year. On May 27, 1994, she married actor Jon Tenney; they had a daughter, Emerson Rose, in November 1997, and divorced in March 2003. Hatcher is now dating Stephen Kay, who played Reginald, the Quartermaines' butler, on General Hospital.
