.So there is a man in Delaware who admitted to the court that he raped his 3-year-old daughter. The man is a wealthy heir to the DuPont fortune. The judge in the case decided the man would not "fare well" in prison. His sentence is probation. HUH? This is an admitted pedophile! His victim got a life sentence.
Did monty play a part in the sentence? Did influence play a part? What about other children who will be exposed to this man while he is free to live his life?
