Delaware Criminal Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's Delaware Criminal Laws section, covering a wide range of criminal laws and issues such as the time limits for filing criminal charges, financial and other property-related crimes, violent crimes, drug laws, and more. For instance, Delaware's gun control laws ban sawed-off shotguns and silencers, as do most other states, but has no waiting period for gun buyers. The state's child abuse laws, meanwhile, require physicians, social workers, teachers, and others with a close proximity to children to report any credible signs of abuse to the authorities.
