Ultra Rich Du Pont Heir Gets Only PROBATION After Raping 3-Year-Old Daughter

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersDisgusting!Dysfunctional Families

Robert H. Richards IV is a du Pont heir and a rapist who abused his 3-year-old daughter! That's absolutely despicable!

This is absolutely disgusting on so many levels.

Robert H. Richards IV, a du Pont family heir, pleaded guilty to raping his 3-year-old daughter almost six years ago.

This horrible monster, who helped build the du Pont chemical empire, was only given eight years of probation and ordered to seek treatment as punishment.

He was convicted of fourth-degree rape in 2008, and he hasn't served any jail time at all. It's a class C felony, yet he gets to ride it out in his $1.8 million mansion.

That is an abomination!

Officials kept the case away from the public until his ex-wife Tracy Richards filed a lawsuit looking to get money from him to help pay for her children's lifetime of therapy — something she desperately needs.

Apparently he raped BOTH his daughter and his son, though he was never formally convicted of raping his son, several times before the daughter eventually told her grandmother.

The grandmother told Tracy and Tracy confronted Richards and had him arrested.

Richards used his wealth to hire a super expensive legal team and denied the charges… until he failed a lie detector test and admitted to abusing his daughter.

So this convicted child-abusing rapist avoided jail by pleading guilty and accepting a deal where he'd get eight years probation instead of jail because the judge thought he wouldn't "fare well" in prison.

The judge did it because they thought he needed "help" more than punishment. We disagree.

He should've been thrown into jail with the general population. Prison is not meant to be fun, prison is a PUNISHMENT and a DETERRENT. Child rapists should 100% be in prison, and they should have an extremely hard time with it.

If you can still get thrown into the slammer for a little bit of weed, you should absolutely be locked away for destroying a child's life through rape.

We hope Tracy wins her suit and strips him of every cent.

    That judge should be disbarred and prosecuted. This is inexcusable.

  3. 3

    People like this should be executed.

    I don't often agree with you Perez but on this issue we are 100% on the same page. This vile filth needs to be raped in prison by Bubba for the rest of his sad and pathetic life. Monsters who get off on little kids have no place in a civilized society. They cannot be cured or kept a safe enough distance away from children. Especially one as sick as this pig. His own kids???!!! I hope his ex puts him in the poor house.

    For once I 100% times infinity AGREE with you PEREZ!!! However, he coming from one of the DuPonts (look up the history on the Dupont family and a "few" others) It is common for people from those "families" to abuse their own and other children sexually and more!!! It is truly disgusting and should OPEN people's EYES UP!!!!!!

    People need to continue to read and expand their mind. Don't believe everything research it and find out what is truly going on in this world.

    His punishment should have been castration and thrown in jail, the inmates would have given him a taste of his own vileness. I hope that woman sues him for every penny he has, sick bastard!

    I am just sick to my stomach reading this article. Being someone who has been molested as a child hearing that if you have money you can get away with it just sickens me.

    Agreed!!Thats child abuse physical and mental abuse ! A childs innocence taken by a person she should trust !

  10. Babel Tower says – reply to this


    This "thing" should be burned alive and feed the pigs with his remains.
    But hey! This would be inhuman isn't?

    Re: cheesuschrimbus – totally pro with you

    I read on another site that the judge said he "wouldn't fare well in prison." Fuck that. He deserves whatever would come to him in prison. This judge sounds like she cares more about this man's well being than the kid's.

  13. 13

    That is disgusting, and he should be put into prison.

  14. Msrad1787 says – reply to this


    Re: wanker – you are what's wrong with this. Those remarks are disgusting and you are just as sick for making those comments.

  15. Msrad1797 says – reply to this


    This man is a monster, a disgusting low life! To do this to a person, to do this to a defenseless child is the most vile thing you could do. The only thing that is fitting of this crime is for him to experience why it feels like to be taped, tortured and then for wild animals to peck at his open wounds until he eventually dies. If these people actually got more than a slap on the wrist they would think twice about doing these sick things. Hope this guy gets what he deserves one way or another.

  16. duchesswaity says – reply to this


    The public needs to demand prison. That mother ought to get a huge ass petition going and some protests. Let the fukker get some karma in prison.

  17. me says – reply to this


    Cut his dick…..and have him it it….stick a brume through his ass hole. ..

  18. Nikki says – reply to this


    In the position you are in Perez you could help bring issue like this to the fore front of pop culture news, allowing the world to see what this subhuman has done to an innocent child! Where is the outcry for her and her brother? Where are the famous voices shouting in front of cameras about sexual assault on children that cannot defend themselves. Start using your power in this country and defend those who cannot defend themselves. I am just a mom, but I would do all I can to spread the word on this and others who have fallen victim to sexual assault. It ruins you for a time. For a little girl, you destroyed her path and life and created a he one she was never intended for. This monster should die.

  19. Ali says – reply to this


    That's disgusting, how can he get away with it? A plea deal like that should never make the table and obviously someone got paid a lot of money….. filth.

  20. Pryncesskrista says – reply to this


    He should have been put in jail, on a range of murderers, they would have had a fantastic time with him. After then raped him a few times, they'd of done away with him. Most men in prison (other then the ones who are there for that reason) will kill a child rapist nooo problem. But since i dont wish death on anyone, maybe just a severe beat down will be good enough… Piece of shit.

  21. 21

    that judge should be fired. no way excusable to just give this piece of garbage probation!!!! Who gives a shit if he wouldn't "fare well" in prison, whatever that means. that guy should get ass raped every day by a big dude named bubba lol

  22. Pamela says – reply to this


    He may have gotten away with in a court of law, but I assure you he has a far worse punishment coming to him! You never mess with Gods children and get away with it!

  23. Melissa says – reply to this


    DISGUSTING! What is wrong with the law ????????????????????????????????????

    WHAT the benjamin is going on there.

    Re: Msrad1787 – Im just a sick as a child rapist and pedophile because I made an off color comment? why dont you go through time, get yourself raped as a child, then travel back to current day and see if you still feel the same way about a person making a tacky comment and your rapist, you blubbering drama queen.

  26. kay says – reply to this


    Paula Deen was pulled from stores for saying something ignorant. Pull these Du Pont products from stores and don't buy them. There is a place below hell for child abusers.

    He looks like Ed Schultz

  28. Alicia says – reply to this


    Re: Teresa Andrews – AGREE! The judge had to have been paid off or something to allow a disgusting piece of filth like that to walk. It is no wonder ppl have little faith in the judicial system. This abomination ADMITTED his crime for Christ's sake. He NEEDS to not 'fare well' in prison.

  29. shanghai says – reply to this


    Disgusting!!!!!! Surely they have to appeal this and get a different judge!! Put him in jail for a looong time and hope he gets some rough justice in there. Don't often advocate death penalty but really some people are just scum and are NEVER going to be rehabilitated.

  30. Don Mitchell says – reply to this


    This guy is a piece of shit and so is the judge who was bought off.People like this should be used as targets for assassin training.They are an insult to the human species and should be eradicated.

  31. Jamie says – reply to this


    this is the most disgusting thing I have heard about in a long time I have 2daughters ages 8 and 5 & my son is 11 I cant imagine how he got away w this the judge & "mister Du Pont heir" should both b put n prison n gen pop & it should b made very aware 2 the other prisoners why they r there they would get what they deserve & hopefully very slow & extremely painfull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Charlee says – reply to this


    Happens all the time. My ex raped THREE little girls, pled guilty, so they reduced the charges to one count of molesting a minor and one count of ABHAND and still got 5 years probation probation. Now he is married again and has another child! No one cares about our kids if the man has money!

  33. David says – reply to this


    This Judge should be investigated, the law should apply to all. This deal should have never happened and it's disgusting and wrong. Make your voices heard by signing one of the many petitions out there on the internet, don't just sit there and shake your head make a difference.

  34. strazzy says – reply to this


    The judge on this case conveniently left her position May of 2013. Guess she was paid enough. This is disgusting.

    ENOUGH! Enough talking and more doing!
    Gods and goddesses hear my plea, make the child predators and rapists suffer, Let it be let it be!
    To you child rapist: noone likes you. Go kill yourself.
    Let it be, let it be.
    Gods and goddesses hear my humble plea, child molesters die now!
    Please do this favor for me.
    Let it be so mote it be!!

  37. Kimberley says – reply to this


    The judge should be disbarred for this! What this sub-human pedophile has done to those two precious children is unconscionable! Send him to the toughest prison and leave him in the general population. Just make sure the other prisoners know what he's done first. He'll get justice for sure!

  38. sally says – reply to this


    not only should he get the same treatment as he gave the kids but so should the judge, bet if it was the judges kid or grandkid the guy would be on deathrow

  39. Realistic says – reply to this


    Why do this to your own children or any child. With his money he could have gorgeous hookers around the clock take care of his tiny stock. Justice is blinded with cash deposited in offshore bank accounts for corrupt Judges. Federal investigation required!

  40. Tammy Stubbs says – reply to this


    This is sad and it only makes the judge look like a complete ass. It makes me question the judges real motives… money? fear of political power? what makes someone with years of experience bringing punishment to those who deserve it and protecting those who's voice can not be heard make a decision as grotesque as this one. I can only hope that one day the judge will have to answer to those who's life he has forever affected by this!

  41. jas says – reply to this


    YES!! " If you can still get thrown into the slammer for a little bit of weed, you should absolutely be locked away for destroying a child's life through rape"

    The rules only applie when they want it to be applied, otherwise loopholes are there for a reason.
