Please note: this may not capture all individuals who may have taken a plea bargain for cases involving the specified types of offenses. We made a good faith attempt to match the specified offense types to existing charges in Delaware.

This fully responds to your FOIA request and this matter is now considered CLOSED.

Thank you for contacting the Delaware Department of Correction.

Sincerely,
