Delaware has very serious penalties associated with any type of sex crime. In addition, any type of conviction involving a sexual offense will require the individual to be placed on the Sex Offender Registry. Depending upon the seriousness of it, even for minor offenses and inappropriate touching, sexual harassment, those sorts of things, you could be placed on the registry for a period of 15 years. If it is any type of rape, any type of serious unlawful sexual contact, you’d be placed on the registry, potentially, for life.
That affects employment. It affects any type of potential job placement. There are reporting requirements, and any deviation from the reporting requirement for sex registry offenders means that that is an additional felony, and they can go to jail for that.
