    Stay near your bathroom when reading in case of urge to vomit: I'm 66 and a big boy now, I know Justice is not always blind to wealth and influence, race as well - but this is sinful.

    Just as with the infamous case of "affluenza", it's pretty clear that the 1% aren't subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

    How could the Judge DO that? Put him back in the house with the same 3yr old daughter - and around countless children! How can she sleep....

    This is just outrageous - and hidden until the wife launched a Civil Suit.

    This guy may just get Popped some day - this kind of crime and no repercussions for the Father-BabyDaughter-Raper can really light the fuse on the wrong person now that it's public. I'll only think the rest.....

    You're right, it is outrageous. The thing that's even more outrageous is that I'm not even surprised anymore. Every time I see a wealthy person evade justice I'm angry but never surprised. I just expect it now.

    I would have no problem with a zero prison time sentence if he went from court to the gallows.

    Where is the fallacy? Quite simply by what stretch of the imagination does anybody believe our concern should be with how he will fare in prison? I am concerned with treatment for his children and any other victims. If his fortune is insufficient to provide this treatment I am more than happy to have his body parts sold to cover costs.

    Someone needs to treat him like a prison female canine.

    If I were his wife I'd kill him in his sleep. If there was ever a person who needed to be put down, it's him.

    We no longer have a "Justice" system. We have a "Legal" system...and apparently if you have enough money you can influence the degree that legality is defined. The last I was aware, people were not intended to fare well in prison. They don't typically base punishment on how a person will fare, but when you're loaded I guess it's different.

    The judge gave no jail time because he would "not fare well in prison." I would certainly hope not. Doing something as heinous as what he did deserves everything he would likely get in prison. That sounds much more like justice to me. Stories like this are just sickening.

    The judge was worried how he would fare in prison..... Who cares? He should have thought about that before he molested his young daughter. I have to wonder if the judge would show so much leniency if it was her daughter that was being molested. I hardly doubt it.

    There is more here than is being revealed. The prosecutor approved a sweetheart plea deal that the judge rubber stamped.

    It gets even worse:. This scumbag admitted to raping his 19 month old son. He has never been charged with raping his son.

    This one was hushed up by the prosecutor, judge and local media. This guy is the offspring of two prominent families. We learned about this baby raper only because his ex-wife sued his sorry butt in civil court.

    The heir to the du Pont chemical fortune also admitted to sexually assaulting his infant son. He was initially charged with two counts of second-degree child rape, which would have carried a mandatory 20-year prison term if convicted. Richards—again, accused of raping two of his own children—was released on $60,000 bail and eventually copped a plea deal that involved him admitting he had abused his children, but receiving the lesser charge of fourth-degree rape. That felony can carry up to 15 years in prison, though it’s not unusual for those convicted to face lesser time.

    A number of sources, including the chief prosecutor in the Delaware county where the case was tried, said they found the judge’s justification for waiving jail time—that Richards wouldn’t do well in prison—highly unusual. One defense lawyer gave the following assessment to The News Journal: “Who thrives in jail?”

    I guess it depends on your interpretation of "faring well". For me, "faring well" would be him going to prison and being taken out the first night by the other prisoners.
