She was portrayed by Génesis Rodríguez.
Agent Richards was taken hostage by infamous drug lord Gabriel Cortez while other agents were searching for him. She was later shown in the passenger's seat of Cortez's car, handcuffed to the door as Cortez drove off. As soon as they were far enough from sight, Richards had her cuffs removed, and it was revealed that she helped Cortez escape from a courthouse; receiving a $3 million pay off for her cooperation. To avert suspicion, Richards was tossed out of Cortez's moving car and she told a tale of abduction at the hands of Cortez. However, her story is not bought by her superiors, and Richards is arrested for being in league with Cortez.
