    Who is the other rich person who raped his daughter and got away without jail time?
    If you disagree with the broader point, that's fine.

    But let's put it this way. This guy, from a famous legal family and famous industrial family with connections all across the elite levels of that area, could write a check for what was surely a mid-six figure defense after it was all over, at least. Assume a rural white guy working minimum wage with the same charges, represented by a public defender or some guy 2 years out of law school. If you're betting which one would get the lighter sentence, are you contending the odds are anywhere close to 50-50? That a bookie would give even odds on that bet? I'm thinking I'd need a 10-1 payoff at LEAST to take the Walmart worker.... 50 or 100-1 is probably closer to the real odds.

    The same question for those of your bent. After all, it was YOU who posted about the "one percenter". To me he just looks like a child rapist. Some of that sort have money, some don't.

    So you agree you can't generalize?

    This guy was let out because the judge, prosecutor and DE attorney general failed. It's happening all over the country.

    He's a child rapist who's well off financially and more than likely has some political connections. Maybe that old family money is helping that judge advance her career?

    Entirely possible, but again, this is more on the DA than the judge. She'd have had no wiggle room if the original charges hadn't been modified downward by the DA.

    The DA too. Never underestimate the power of a family name and clout.

    Given the fall out, it more likely the judge is a liberal do gooder, who thinks counseling and group therapy will help sort out his perverted ways. No doubt whatsoever. Happens all the time.

    And what political connections would they be?

    You take the word of a child that may have been coached by her mother... It wouldn't be the first time such separations were engineered this way for better payouts and/or to get the man out of the picture.

    The child's word is all they have. The plea bargain ended what would have otherwise been drawn out for mouths. To state as fact he is a rapist, is rather short sighted. Decades back, such cases were prosecuted more often until they found the horror the child felt after realizing they put their father in jail by saying what mommy told them to say.

    He may or may not be guilty, and we will never really know. The damage is either dine or not to the child, but if the child is used for an improper conviction, even proper conviction...

    Children often never get over such a thing.
