yet another way to waste time on the internet

Robert H. Richards IV, a wealthy heir to the du Pont fortune, has been spared prison after being convicted of raping his three year old daughter. Delaware Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden sentenced the admitted serial child-rapist to probation on the ground that he “would not fare well” in prison. The case echoes the affluenza scandal in which a judge spared a rich child a prison sentence after he had killed four people on the grounds that he was so rich that he couldn’t distinguish right from wrong.

Rich, admitted child rapist granted probation because he “would not not fare well” in prison [trigger warning] - Boing Boing

This judge and prosecutor should be disbarred, and Robert H. Richards IV should spend the rest of his life in jail. This is a disgusting and reprehensible miscarriage of justice.
