Affluenza: du Pont Heir Robert Richards IV Gets Probation for Raping 3-Year-old Daughter

AFFLUENZA:  Robert Richards IV was sentenced by a Superior Court judge to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter. Judge Jan Jurden noted in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and needed treatment instead of incarceration.

Judge Jan Jurden’s sentencing order for Robert H. Richards IV suggested that she considered unique circumstances when deciding his punishment for fourth-degree rape. Her observation that prison life would adversely affect Richards was a rare and puzzling rationale, several criminal justice authorities in Delaware said. Some also said her view that treatment was a better idea than prison is a justification typically used when sentencing drug addicts, not child rapists.

Richards’ 2009 rape case became public this month after attorneys for his ex-wife Tracy filed a lawsuit seeking compensatory and punitive damages for the abuse of his daughter.

The fact that Jurden expressed concern that prison wasn’t right for Richards came as a surprise to defense lawyers and prosecutors who consider her a tough sentencing judge. Several noted that prison officials can put inmates in protective custody if they are worried about their safety, noting that child abusers are sometimes targeted by other inmates.

How many black or Hispanic convicts are afforded that privilege by the court system? They are thrown under a prison cell instead. This judge should be thrown off the bench.
