Judge: Probation for du Pont heir in daughter rape because ‘he would not fare well’ in prison

The wealthy can now rape toddlers and get minimal punishment. The only true crime in America is being poor.

A Superior Court judge who sentenced an heir to the du Pont fortune to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter wrote in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and suggested that he needed treatment instead of time behind bars, according to Delaware Online.

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

Jurden gave Richards, who had no previous criminal record, an eight-year prison term, but suspended all the prison time for probation.

“Defendant will not fare well in Level 5 [prison] setting,” she wrote in her order.

Road Rage Instant Karma

Skip to about a minute in:

A Florida driver with a serious case of road rage got what was coming to him, as captured in a video by the person he was tailgating. The driver in front couldn’t switch lanes and the weather was too bad for her to risk speeding, and yet the a-hole behind her was tailgating her as if it would will her to defy traffic law.

She explains this individual “already passed a truck in a left turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant ass.” So, finally, when he was able to switch lanes and drive past her, he flipped the bird and drove away…

Construction Worker Describes Escape From Burning Houston Apartment

This is intense:

On Tuesday, Curtis Reissig found himself trapped on the fifth-floor balcony of a burning apartment building. “The flames were getting closer and hotter,” he told the Associated Press. “I knew I had to do something.”

Ressig leapt to the balcony below, where firefighters rescued him just seconds before part of the building collapsed.

“In my mind I was … going through all the scenarios. What can I do? How am I going to drop? How am I going to swing? And I wanted another swing. But I knew I didn’t have time because it was so hot. I took one swing,” Reissig said.

When fire broke out, Ressig was eating lunch outside the still-under-construction apartment complex. He ran to the building’s roof with a fire extinguisher, but he fire quickly spread, forcing Ressig to the building’s fifth floor.

Purity Balls: Fathers Become Daughter’s Boyfriend Until Marriage To Protect Virginity

This should be the creepiest thing you read all day:

A new father-daughter chastity phenomenon is leeching across the United States.

“Purity balls” are similar to weddings, except the father marries his twelve-year-old daughter. The goal is to maintain the girl’s virginity until marriage.

During the ceremony, the fathers present their daughters with purity rings, and the duo become boyfriend and girlfriend, the Daily Mail reported.

“You keep this on your finger and as of this point you are married to the Lord and your father is your boyfriend,” the father says as he hands his daughter the ring.

The girls then “silently commit to live pure lives before God through the symbol of laying down a white rose at the cross, before engaging in a wedding-type dance with their father.”

Having sex with, kissing or touching a man (other than their fathers) before marriage is strictly prohibited.
