A former police An officer with the Houston Independent School District (HISD) was given a surprising lax punishment after pleading guilty to an inappropriate relationship with a minor at the school where he was employed. In fact, the school cop won’t have to register as a sex offender even after he admitted to receiving oral sex from a child. Yes, really. Read on below.
Jacob Ryan Delgadillo, a cop at Cullen Middle School, was charged with two felony counts of indecency with a minor. He is accused of fondling a 14-year-old girl and having the girl perform oral sex on him, according to Chron.
“Delgadillo said little as he pleaded guilty to state District Judge Marc Carter, but acknowledged that he will have to surrender his law enforcement license as part of the plea deal,” Chron reports.
His five-year probation punishment is quite shocking, especially since he was facing a possible 20-year prison sentence for the crime.
Not only does he have a relatively easy sentence, he also will not have to register as a sexual offender. This is despite his guilty verdict and admission to the crime. Yes, seriously.
Additionally, Chron reports “deferred adjudication, a form of probation that means he will not have a conviction on his record if he successfully completes the probation.” Delgadillo is paying a small price for his serious offense.
In order to successfully complete the probationary period, he must avoid contact with the girl or any other minors. If he fails to do this, he will be given the maximum punishment. If he succeeds, he will walk.
Despite this eyebrow-raising verdict, the prosecutor, Jennifer Stabe, said that the family of the victim was satisfied with the decision. Delgadillo’s attorney, Paul Atman, declined to comment, Chron reports.
