    Rich Guy Walks After Raping 3 Yr Old Daughter

    Heir to du Pont chemical business Robert H. Richards IV raped daughter but spared jail after judge said he woudn’t “fare well” in prison

    THE heir of a wealthy family has been spared jail after admitting to raping his own daughter because the judge in the case decided he might “not fare well” behind bars.
    Robert H. Richards IV was charged in 2009 with the fourth-degree rape of his three-year-old daughter.


    Child rapist... Robert H. Richards IV lives on a trust fund and doesn’t work. Picture: Delaware Police Source: Supplied

    The abuse dates back a decade and went on for three years. Over the same period Richards, 46, was accused by his ex-wife of raping his toddler son but was never prosecuted due to lack of evidence.
    Despite confessing to his daughter’s rape Richards, a member of the du Pont family which founded the multinational chemical company, got only an eight-year suspended sentence with no jail time.
    Delaware Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden, whose decision it was to spare Richards jail, reasoned that he needed treatment instead of time behind bars, court records show. Jurden also ordered Richards to “participate in a sex offenders” treatment program.
    The shocking leniency of the judgment came to light only after Richard’s ex-wife filed a lawsuit seeking compensation for the abuse to her children, the Delaware News Journal reported.
    In her lawsuit, Tracy Richards claimed that her ex-husband, who is unemployed and lives on a trust fund, penetrated his daughter with his fingers while masturbating, and went on to assault his toddler son.


    Scumbag Judge....

    He told his daughter to “to keep what he had done to her a secret” but in 2007 the girl told her grandmother.
    According to the lawsuit Richards admitted to the abuse of both of his children. He was initially charged with second-degree rape, which carries a 10-year mandatory sentence. After hiring a top law firm he was offered and accepted a plea deal of one count of fourth-degree rape, which carries no mandatory jail time.
    Some of the abuse occurred at a $1.8 million mansion in Greenville, Delaware, where Richards still lives. His wife is now living with her children in rented accommodation.
    In her ruling the judge wrote that the rapist might “not fare well” in jail. Legal experts expressed surprise at her decision, insisting that how the defendant would be treated in prison should not influence decision’s of sentencing.
    Child rapists are routinely attacked in prison. Although most prisons have measures in place to protect them.

    I wonder at what point this corrupt bitch judge thought if the child "fared well" whilst he was violating her?

    Disgusting.

    Incredible.
    I hope this story stirs up so much outrage the judges house is picketed and she has to change her mind.
    That or she loses her job.
    I wonder what kind of relationship she has with the father.

    I reckon the world community should band together and boycott all du Pont products.

    And the judge should be disbarred as being a danger to the community.

    Lots of outrage surfacing.

    Apparently it was all kept quiet at the time.
    With any luck he'll be in prison soon one way or another.
    The judge 'didn't think he'd fare well in jail'?
    So fucking what?

    Good that the judge is taking all the heat. She's probably the most innocent person in a conspiracy from the state governor down to the prosecution, and the media reporting nothing for many years to not produce public pressure. The deal with the fourth-degree rape was agreed upon by prosecution and defence, I don't even know if a US judge can sentence harsher than the posecution demands. If so, it must be rare.

    I am suspicious of judges that let pedos off light. But no evidence of wrongdoing or abuse of authority.

    In an apparent democratic and fair society, this is worse than the shit everyone jumps on to criticize a country because of its Islamic beliefs simply because the west want's to label them as possible terrorists.

    ^ I agree JJ. The very fabric of society has been assaulted when a member of the Judiciary can allow such a crime to pass through the courts without a custodial sentence being imposed.

    The mandatory 10 year sentence for a second-degree rape appears to have assisted the perpetrator in obtaining a plea deal. He had nothing to lose in forcing his daughter to give evidence in court which of course nobody for the prosecution wanted.

    The law is an ass on occasions especially when ably assisted by the judiciary.

    Son and daughter?

    How is this man not in jail and can't the state appeal, or the prosecution?

    So, you agree with the verdict? Not casting aspersions . . . just asking

    I'm not familiar with American royalty, so I looked up Du Pont. Suspected they're Jews, but actually cheese-eating surrender monkeys. There are the mitigating circumstances of compromised DNA, all throughout the 19th century the family practised the Islamic custom of cousin marriages to preserve its wealth.
