"'Saving Richard investigated our society's systemic failure to prevent and punish child abuse -- through the tragic case of a Maryland boy named Richard. Our report documented how social workers ignored repeated warnings from family members, teachers and neighbors about Richard's systematic torture. And our story revealed how a judge dismissed the recommendation of probation and parole officials and sent Richard's torturer to jail for such a short period of time that she was soon back out having more children."
