2008 child sexual abuse case involving one of Delaware's most prominent names is back in the spotlight.
The case involves the great-grandson of Irenee Du Pont. The charges involve his children and were brought forward by the children's mother, Tracy Richards who is seeking monetary damages for their personal injuries.
In 2008, Richards IV, 47, pleaded guilty in Superior Court to the felony that included one count of intentional 4th degree rape and sexual penetration of his daughter who was 3 years old when the abuse started. According to the lawsuit, Richards IV later admitted to more sexual abuse in 2010 that began when his son was just 19 months. The lawsuit claims he initially denied any abuse prior to failing a lie detector test six years ago. He was never criminally charged with abusing his son however.
