Even More Evidence That the Rich Have Impunity

The Chicago Tribune reports “Wisconsin billionaire pleads guilty to sexual assault charge

On 6 June 2014, Wisconsin billionaire Samuel Curtis Johnson III, heir to the SC Johnson & Son family fortune, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor (only misdemeanor, not felony) sexual assault of his own stepdaughter, in addition to pleading guilty of disorderly conduct in the case itself. This piece of human trash raped his own 12-year-old stepdaughter multiple times from 2007-2010. BUT, he’s a filthy rich (white male) trust fund kid billionaire, so he only has to serve 60 days of the four-month sentence in jail and pay a fine of up to $6,000 (pocket change to him), according to the plea agreement.
