Theodore Generous

A D.C. man accused of sexually abusing a minor family or household member in 2014 in Worcester County is headed to jail for five years and must register as a sex offender.

According to court records, Theodore E. Generous, 31, of Washington D.C., pleaded guilty in Worcester County Circuit Court in June to one count of sexual abuse of a minor household/family member stemming from a series of acts that occurred from June 15 to July 15, 2014, and Nov. 20-25, 2014. He was charged with 16 total offenses after his arrest in July 2020, 14 of which were dropped as part of his plea agreement.

On Sept. 29, Generous was sentenced to 15 years in prison, with all but five years suspended, to the remaining felony charge. He was also ordered to register as a Tier III sex offender. The strictest of the state’s three levels, Tier III sex offenders must register for life and check in every three months. Generous’ sentencing agreement also included a five-year probation requirement at the conclusion of his jail time.
