Judge Jan Jurden gives probation instead of jail to rich guy who raped his own three year old daughter

I’m not sure who is more evil in this case – the guy who raped his own dauther, or the judge who refused to put him in jail.

Huffington Post reports:

One Percenter Convicted Of Raping Child Dodges Jail Because He ‘Will Not Fare Well’

A Delaware man convicted of raping his three-year-old daughter only faced probation after a state Superior Court judge ruled he “will not fare well” in prison.

In her decision, Judge Jan Jurden suggested Robert H. Richards IV would benefit more from treatment. Richards, who was charged with fourth-degree rape in 2009, is an unemployed heir living off his trust fund.

Richards is the great grandson of du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont, a chemical baron.

… he admitted to assaulting his infant son in addition to his daughter between 2005 and 2007. Richards was initially indicted on two counts of second-degree child rape, felonies that translate to a 10-year mandatory jail sentence per count.

Richards hired one of the state’s top law firms and was offered a plea deal of one count of fourth-degree rape charges — which carries no mandatory minimum prison sentencing. He accepted, and admitted to the assault.

In her sentence, Jurden said he would benefit from participating in a sex offenders rehabilitation program rather than serving prison time.

    Come on! This story can NOT stop here. There has to be some follow up where the judicial system castigates the Judge, reverses the sentence to the appropriate time to be served in prison, and puts the Judge in jail for taking a bribe. Why else would a Judge pass such a ridiculous sentence on a member of the family which owns the State in which this crime was committed, and in which the case was heard…..Delaware?

      I totally agree this is outrageous..A petition needs to be started to ensure that disgusting women never works on the bench again and that animal serve the appropriate time. I wonder how she would feel if it was her 3 year old daughter or even her that was raped and some judge let him off all because he comes from money and “wouldn’t fare well” in prison. It makes me sick to my stomach.

    The practice of letting the wealthy guilty walk, while punishing those in the middle & lower income classes is becoming a regular occurence. WTH ?! The black robed thugs that do not judge according to the precept of equal justice under the law, need to be kicked off the bench and prosecuted.

    Hmm, I can’t help but wonder just how many hundreds of thousands of dollars this pedophile contributed to his corrupted man of the law?
