Sexual misconduct is the charge filed against individuals who are accused of taking advantage of those under their care with developmental disabilities or in other facilities. This includes health workers, paid staff, employees, volunteers or interns who work with the developmentally disabled or other person who is under the care of the state in a variety of other residential or medical facilities. These charges are very serious, and if convicted could lead to extensive prison time and a complete destruction of your future career. The law in the state provides that any person who believes sexual misconduct is taking place is required to report or face repercussions and this makes workers in such facilities at great risk when any other worker or person in the facility or home accuses them of any sexual act.
