A DuPont family heir who was convicted of raping a three-year-old girl was investigated by police and prosecutors in 2010 over allegations he sexually abused a young boy.

However, the News Journal reports there was no evidence found to launch a criminal charge against Robert H. Richards IV.

His ex-wife filled a civil suit this week on behalf of the two children.

Prosecutors reportedly will take a second look at the allegations involving Richards and the boy.

He pleaded guilty in 2008 but did not serve prison time in connection with the sex crime against the girl. --

The facts being that Crumplar says Richards raped a three-year-old girl more than a decade ago and a one-year-old boy on several occasions. He was never charged criminally in the rape of the young boy.

Crumplar explains why the suit took so long to be filed.
