Department of Justice hosts forum on re-entry after incarceration

A 31-year-old Georgetown man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to murdering his grandmother. Deputy Attorneys General Michael Tipton and Amanda Nyman secured the plea and sentence for George Bailey, III. In October 2018, Bailey choked 69-year-old Lorraine Bradley to death after she fell while she and Bailey were leaving her Long Neck home. Bailey then stole her car. Bradley’s body, along with two dead dogs, was found more than a week later after friends reported they hadn’t heard from her. Bailey pleaded guilty to Murder Second Degree and was immediately sentenced by a Superior Court judge to 30 years in prison, followed by 6 months of home confinement then 10 years of probation.

More than 75 guests gathered at Wilmington’s Christina Cultural Arts Center last Thursday to learn about navigating re-entry for loved ones returning from incarceration. DOJ’s Community Engagement Unit organized “What’s Next?,” a community panel and resource fair tailored for family and friends of incarcerated individuals transitioning back into the community. The panel discussion included representatives of the Department of Health and Social Services, the Bureau of Community Corrections, mental health provider YOUr Center, a re-entrant, and a family member of a resettled citizen. Deputy Attorney General Allison Abessinio and Community Engagement Specialist Corie Priest organized the event. The Community Engagement Unit, formed earlier this year from the former Crime Strategies Unit, exists to encourage collaboration with Delaware communities to build trust with the Department of Justice and law enforcement, and to prevent and reduce crime. The CEU works with residents to collect neighborhood-specific data and information in order to tailor specific responses to ongoing crime and blight issues.
