Rafael Robb, an economics professor at the University of Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in November 2007 for brutally murdering his wife. He was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison. Robb was scheduled to be paroled in January 2013. Due to public outrage, the state of Pennsylvania passed a law that gives crime victims and their families direct input into parole decisions. Robb’s parole was denied.
The Philadelphia Inquirer just published an interview with Rafael Robb. Robb claims he is not violent and blames his wife’s brothers for the fact that he is still in jail. He sounds like a typical sociopath.
