Story

Richards is a great-grandson of the chemical magnate Irenee du Pont.

He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended.

Sad but true. If you're rich (extra points if you're also white) you can easily beat the system.

pointing out racism in the judicial system (that certainly does exist) isn't racist..

That whole situation sickens me. Let them throw that baby raper in jail so he can be someone else's "baby".

I felt defeated after reading that topic title. Just helpless. The fact that that sentence could be conjured sickens me.

Raping his toddler daughter?

Yeah, he would have ended up dead on his first day in prison.

There are no words that properly describe how insane this is.

#9 Posted by lostrib (31473 posts) -

It sounds like he was given a plea bargain:

"In this particular case, the facts and circumstances made it unlikely that a conviction could be secured at trial. ...This resolution protected the victim and imposed conditions that would make it less likely the defendant could harm others."

Judging from the story, it seems all he got was probation, and has to register as a sex offender. If they thought that the "defendant could not fare well in prison" for whatever jacked up reasoning they had, you would think AT THE VERY LEAST sentence him to house arrest or something.

I guess we would need the facts of the case, I mean this story is just based on pretty much one line from a legal document. That quote makes it sound like this was some sort of plea deal for a weak case

this is as horrible as a decision as that kid with the affluenza defense who got off his drunk driving vehicular manslaughter charge

No chance at rehabilitation, no justice.. in all, disappointing news. Reminds me why I don't watch the noose anymoore.

Wow so much for protecting our youth, next time he might end up killing some poor child.

He took away the child's innocents, he should be severely punished.

This just sends out a message that if your tremendously wealthy you can get away with anything.

#19 Posted by Bigboi500 (28804 posts) -

Reminds me of the case with the pretty blond teacher who raped one of her students. The judge said she was too pretty for prison.

Shit like that and this is why I don't vote anymore. I honestly wouldn't mind if the US crashed and burned...

Yeah after reading the article it seems it wasn't a case that went to trial.

Where's that fellow that loves to defend rich people here in OT? gerg or something. He would have a ball here.

Scum like him should have their genitals ripped off by Bruce Willis.

That's fine. People outside prisons have more guns and I'm sure there'll be a lot of itchy trigger fingers no matter where he goes.

#28 Posted by one_plum (6299 posts) -

When they told me justice is blind, I didn't think they were talking about this kind of blindness.

Yes but inside prison he could get a nice taste of his own medicine and STILL get taken out, albeit in a slower and more brutal fashion!

lol.. that seems like a rather severe conclusion to come to based off a few fucked up court cases...

Man the perks of being super rich are innumerable.

#34 Posted by indzman (16396 posts) -

What kind of man rapes his own toddler daughter ??? Its not about being rich or poor , its about being insane 100 %. This guy should be sent to mental asylum as his mental condition is completely fvked up. He needs treatment :(

Yes, because those couple of court cases are the only problems we have in the good ole US of A. As far as me not voting... I've come to the conclusion that there are no true differences between the liberals and conservatives in our government. The almighty dollar is THE ONLY thing that matter in regards to "justice" and "freedom" in a capitalistic society.

Not by itself, but doing so on a constant basis (Al Sharpton) sure is.

What a shame that would be.... He should be treated the same way as anyone else. If a poor person did what he did, they would end up in prison regardless of what may or may not happen to them in there.

The US government bails out rich wall street while 47 million Americans struggle with poverty and hunger. Conservatives push to cut out SS and SNAP benefits, aka "the safety net" for the poor. The infra-structure of the country is crumbling while we send tax dollars to foreign countries and occupy them with our military, no jobs for millions of Americans, gangs have taken over neighborhoods and cities, crazies shoot up movie theaters and universities almost daily. That's a lot more than "some problems".

So yes, I'd be cool with seeing our economy implode and the rich have their money become useless so they could experience those problems like the rest of every day people.

#43 Posted by MakeMeaSammitch (3675 posts) -

I feel like this is only going to get worse as time goes on, and we'll start to see these stories increasingly common the way the right is setting up the rich on a higher level than everybody else.

@MakeMeaSammitch: How does this have anything to do with being rich? Did you read the article? Can you actually read?

"In this particular case, the facts and circumstances made it unlikely that a conviction could be secured at trial. ...This resolution protected the victim and imposed conditions that would make it less likely the defendant could harm others."

#50 Posted by Sword-Demon (6871 posts) -

Article

Isn't the whole point of prison that they're not supposed to fare well?

It's fucking prison, not a 5-star hotel.
