Man Rapes Infant Daughter

Man Pleads Guilty to Raping his own 2 month old Daughter
But wait, that's just the beginning. This guy's daddy heads the state Corrections Department and part of his plea is to reduce the amount of time he's going to spend in jail for this most heinous act.
This guy is facing, if the judge agrees to the plea, only 6 months in jail! The standard sentence for first-degree child rape is seven to 10 years in prison.
He's admitted to molesting a 9 year old in Maine before and has also been convicted of orchestrating an armed robbery.
How in the heck he's going to get ANY leniency is beyond me.

Now I know fathers want their kids to follow in their footsteps,

Now I know fathers want their kids to follow in their footsteps, but this is really weird. In March, the daughter of Muhammad Ali will take on the daughter of Joe Frazier in a boxing match. (And they're both pro's.)
