School Cop Who Received Oral Sex From A Child Won’t Have To Register As Sex Offender

A Houston Independent School District police officer admitted in court on Wednesday to having an improper relationship with a 14-year-old student while employed at Cullen Middle School in 2015. Jacob Ryan Delgadillo, 30, entered the plea as a part of a deal that allows him to get off with only five years probation and will not require him to register as a sex offender. If he completes his probation without incident, Delgadillo will not show a conviction on his record. Should he violate the terms of his parole within the five-year period, his deal would be gone and he could face the full 20 years in prison.

Um? Is this what happens when you sexually assault a child as a police officer? You get a slap on the hand and get to carry on with your life? What about the girl? She certainly won’t be able to just forget about this incident and move on with her life. Her childhood is over. And you can bet that if Delgadillo had been a teacher or custodian working at the school and committed the same crime he would have been tarred, feathered and thrown in prison.

Twitter users quickly responded with outrage to the deal, asking what kind of judge in their right mind would agree to such a thing:

This horrible excuse for a police officer was originally charged with two counts of felony indecency with a child after the girl claimed that he had her perform oral sex on him and showed her naked pictures of himself. He faced 20 years in prison and a life as a registered sex offender and convicted felon. Those charges were dismissed as a part of the plea. Instead, he can’t be in law enforcement anymore and can’t have any contact with minors for the next five years.

After that, they are fair game.
