GEORGETOWN, Delaware — A former state Senate candidate who was sentenced to a year of probation for unlawful sexual contact has been charged with violating probation by not speaking candidly about his past.
The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/1GL8Og4 ) reports that 56-year-old Eric Bodenweiser has been accused of not talking openly about his past, both in a lie detector test and mandatory group therapy sessions.
Bodenweiser's defense attorney Joseph Hurley says his client is asserting his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination to avoid the possibility of committing perjury in discussing the acts that led to his conviction.
Counselor Robert Gingrich, who treats sex offenders, says taking a polygraph test is a necessary part of the treatment process.
Bodenweiser pleaded no contest in March to two misdemeanor counts of third-degree unlawful sexual contact.
