But it is an American. Very wealthy. Wholly exempt from the law. The word corruption will never be mentioned talk less of bribery. It is the typical American story of being good and the others(Africa) being bad. Remember the movie 'Angels vs Demons.' A Delaware man convicted of raping his three-year-old daughter was only given probation after a state Superior Court judge ruled he "will not fare well" in prison. ''Who does well in prison?'' Osaseye simply ask. What kind of excuse is that? From Affluenza case to Will not Fare Well.
Judge Jan Jurden suggested 41 year old 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. The light sentence has only became public as the result of a subsequent lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, which charges that he penetrated his daughter with his fingers while masturbating, and subsequently assaulted his son as well.
Richards is the great grandson of du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont, a chemical baron.
According to the lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Richard 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. He was released on $60,000 bail while awaiting his charges.
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. So why is he scot free? He will not fare well in Jail but well enough to hire a top attorney.
"Child protection laws are there to safeguard children, and adults who knowingly harm children should be punished"
The US court systems is corrupt like every other country. This is a story where your money can buy justice. Such a sad news for the baby.
