Rape

A 56-year-old Georgetown man is heading to prison for five years for raping a teenager multiple times over the course of a year, leading to the teen giving birth in 2013, the Delaware Department of Justice announced Friday. 

According to the DOJ, Andrew Long was identified as the father of the infant following a paternity test in August 2018. The girl was just 15 when she gave birth to the baby. 

Long pled guilty to third-degree rape and must complete the Transitions sex offender treatment program while in prison. He will be required to register as a Tier III sex offender for the rest of his life.
