A man convicted of raping his 3-year-old daughter dodged jail time for the crime after a judge ruled that he would “not fare well” if he was sent to prison.
According to The Detroit Free Press, the man, Robert H. Richards IV, heir to the the du Pont chemical fortune, was convicted in 2009 of raping his then 3-year-old daughter. The judge in the case, Superior Court Judge Jan Jurden, noted in her sentencing ruling that she considered unique circumstances when deciding that Richards would not serve prison time for the assault.
In her ruling, Jurden wrote that Richards “will not fare well” in prison, and that sex offender rehabilitation treatment would be more beneficial than jail time.
