Du Pont heir dodged prison for raping 3-year-old daughter after judge ruled he 'would not fare well' behind bars
A du Pont family heir who pleaded guilty nearly six years ago to raping his 3-year-old daughter was never put behind bars because a Delaware judge ruled he “would not fare well” in prison, court records show."Would not fare well." Gee. Maybe you should have thought of that BEFORE you destroyed your daughter's life, you monster. I hope you slide under a gas truck and taste your own blood, @$$hole. Maybe I'm a terrible person, but "not far[ing] well in prison" would be a feature, not a bug.
Robert H. Richards IV — scion of the family who built the chemical empire and kin to the co-founders of a prestigious law firm, Richards Layton & Finger — was given eight years probation and was ordered to seek treatment after being convicted of fourth-degree rape in 2008, the records show.
So instead he got eight years of probation with a monthly visit from a social worker. Instead of a bullet behind the ear, which is about all this oxygen thief deserves. He molested his daughter, was convicted in 2008 - three years after he was allegedly abusing his young son as well.
He promises he'll never do it again - run the car in the garage and show us you mean it, please.
That is all.
