Family Court Administrator Guy Sapp to Retire After 42-Year Career
Serving Delaware's Criminal Justice System

Guy Sapp, Court Administrator for the Family Court since 2006, turned in his New Castle County Courthouse security badge on October 31, 2012 after 42 years of combined service in Delaware's Criminal Justice System. Guy first joined the Court in 2000 as the Director of Special Court Services. In 2005 he joined the New Castle County Government but returned in 2006 to the Court Administrator's position. Prior to working with the Judicial Branch, Guy served in the Wilmington Police Department from 1970 through 1989 when he became Chief of Police until his retirement from the Department in 1993. After a brief stint as an administrative assistant at the Public Defender's Office, he became the Director of Youth Rehabilitative Services until 1998 and served as Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Coordinating Council before joining the Court in 2000. Guy looks forward to spending more time with his wife of 41 years, Patricia, and their two sons and three grandchildren and may do some consulting work in the future.

"The impact of Guy's service to the citizens of the State is immeasurable.  I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, Guy during his tenure at Family Court.  He will be missed greatly by the entire Family Court."
