Criminal investigators with the Wilmington Department of Police have arrested Wilmington Attorney Joseph Gabay and charged him with sexual harassment. These charges conclude an investigation that began in October 2012 when investigators were made aware of a complaint filed against Joseph Gabay.

During the course of the investigation it was determined that Gabay made sexual remarks to the female victims and offered legal services in exchange for sexual favors.

The Attorney General’s office was contacted and made aware of the allegations and conducted a review of the investigation. As a result of the review and based on the known facts at this time, an arrest warrant was issued for Gabay charging him with two counts of sexual harassment.

On March 8, 2013, members of the Criminal Investigation Division and the Delaware State Police High Tech Crime Unit executed a search warrant at Gabay’s law office in the 900 block of North Market Street. During this time Gabay was taken into custody without incident

Gabay was arraigned at JP Court 20 and released after posting a $2,000 unsecured bond.
