A judge who sentenced a wealthy du Pont heir to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter noted in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and needed treatment instead of time behind bars, court records show.

Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden’s sentencing order for Robert H. Richards IV suggested that she considered unique circumstances when deciding his punishment for fourth-degree rape. Her observation that prison life would adversely affect Richards was a rare and puzzling rationale, several criminal justice authorities in Delaware said. Some also said her view that treatment was a better idea than prison is a justification typically used when sentencing drug addicts, not child rapists.

Goes to show that money will get you out of anything.

And she has apparently hired security now after this decision ... http://www.usatoday....-child/7247883/

 

Their excuse for giving him a light sentence was the fact that they didn't have enough evidence. Admission of a crime does not require evidence. Even with that, 4th degree rape can bring up to 15 years in prison, yet he only got probation.

Apparently this story occured in 2005, has been "under wraps" and only came to light when he admitted to molesting his 19 month old son in a recent lawsuit.

 

The lawsuits asserts that Roberts also admitted in April 2010, while on probation, that he sexually abused his son. Those assaults began around December 2005, when the boy was 19 months old, and continued for about two years, the lawsuit said.

Many questions about this, though...

 

1. If this happened nearly a decade ago, WHY did the mother stay with him until now?

 

2. Why wasn't he prosecuted further when he admitted to molesting the boy?

 

Doing more research, will post more soon...

Now it has come to light that he never went for his court-ordered "treatment" either. And, yet, this guy is still on the street.

 

A du Pont heir who raped his daughter was supposed to complete an intensive treatment program at an inpatient psychiatric clinic in Massachusetts as a condition of a sentence that allowed him to avoid prison time.

 

But he never did, court records show.

Again, why isn't this guy BEHIND BARS???

 

And, apparently, the Attorney General that was in charge at the time is Beau Biden, son of Joe Biden, Vice President of the United States.

Yup.

 

Poor guy has an ounce of marijuana on him, gets 22 years in prison.

 

Rich guy steals $3 billion from Wall Street, not even prosecuted.

 

I guess it's good to have friends in high places, but not good to have high friends in places...

 

But I will continue to follow this story and make sure this admitted pedophile goes to prison.

It's disgusting, all of it- not just the crimes but the way the wealthy manipulate the system to avoid paying for their crimes.

You would be amazed at what goes on within the world of the rich and elite. Stories like this are just the tip of the iceburg. I can tell you things I've seen evidence of that would make this story look like a day at the park.

 

Google "Bohemian Grove" for starters.

 

Then the "Franklin Scandal" or "Conspiracy of Silence".

 

The rabbit hole goes very deep.

Seems this story has already fallen of the news radar (the way they like It I guess), but I plan on continuing to research it.
