No Jail for Du Pont Who Raped Kid

This is actually worse than affluenza. A wealthy heir to the Du Pont fortune was sentenced only to probation after being convicted of raping his three-year-old daughter because he will “not fare well” in prison. Delaware Superior Court judge Jan Jurden's sentenced Robert H. Richards IV to only probation because “treatment need exceeds need for punishment.” Experts note that reasoning is rarely used in the cases of child rapists. According to the arrest warrant, his daughter told her grandmother that her father told her it was "our little secret" but said she didn't want "my daddy touching me anymore." The lawsuit filed by Richards’s ex-wife also accused him of molesting their infant son, but it was determined there was insufficient evidence to file charges on that. Ricahrds’s great-grandfather is du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont.
