Pppffftttt, NO!
When you make a mistake such as ...
SEX Offenders list YOU as a OFFENDER made YOUR choice to suffer the rest of your life!
The VICTIMS have to suffer life from the devasting events that took place to them or their families.
As for a FARE CHANCE....
Pfffttt, the victims didn't have a fair chance now did they!
For instance of the young girl from Cambridge City that was murdered by a SEX Offender.
That one really slipped through the system, but the system got him now AFTER the violent event that took place and the loss of a little innocent girls life.
Have a Good Day

I'm not saying this is the case with this person but this is a true story:

He works hard, wife is a druggie. He's taking care of everything for the kids and now refuses to give her any more money for drugs. He's bathing the kids she calls the authorities and turns him in for "violating" the toddler daughter. He's run through the court system (without benefit of good council),labeled an offender based on her testimony alone. Kids taken away. Druggie wife overdoses and dies. He can't get kids back because he now has a record as an offender. No visitation whatsoever, can't even be around kids in the neighborhood and has a label for life. Can't get a decent job because of the label so therefore can't hire a good attorney to get his life (and kids) back. A good mans life ruined.

It isn't always as black and white as you might think.

That scenario (Consider)is very believable; I have no doubt that situations like that happen and people are forever (wrongly)labeled. I don't know the details of the conviction that put him on the sex offenders list. However, according to the IDOC website, he has a conviction history for many other violent crimes in the past. Go to towncow.com and click on inmate search. Then enter last name hamilton. Click on page 10. Click on the eighth line down. Is it likely that all of those convictions could have resulted from such scenario's? People need to be aware of their surroundings.

Don't get me wrong here cause I have kids and think most of those people on that list should still be locked up but.. I have a friend whose son must register and is on another list like this in another state- he was 20 and had sex with a 15 year old who lied about her age (it was believable -her curfew was midnight and the mom knew how old he was and consentual)He broke up with her and the little girls mom wanted to fix her heartbroken daughter with revenge.
anyway my point was that this whole list needs to be re-evaluated.
It amazes me that I know someone who did a hellava lot worse and his name is not on any list, he can move around without letting anyone know, and his name is not all over the internet- just a different opinion on the subject.

I checked out the info on town cow about the Hamilton guy. Looks to me like he only has 3 convictions not 20 or more like someone else said. You have to look at the dates on the convictions. There were several counts for the same crimes not over 20 different times. Counts and convictions are not the same thing. And I don't think he is a sex offender. The crime that causes him to register is confinement. That could be holding someone against their will and not be sexual. Not defending him or anything but just because he lives in your neighborhood doesn't mean he's gonna get cha lol. If he has a job and minds his own business let him be. He did the time.

This stuff is confusing. Do the separate counts mean he committed the same crimes over and over again?

No. If the dates are the same they happened at the same time. Like if you are charged with 2 counts of tresspassing it could mean you went on someones land (1) and you entered their house (2). But you get charged with 2 counts even though it was at the same time. Looks like this guy had three crimes, burglary, confinement (that is the sex offender charge) and drug posession but he has more than one count on each crime. Three arrest dates see.

Well, not every "sex offender" is a bad person, and rapes children and women/men. If an 18 male/females messes with a 15 yr old you can get charged w/being a sex offender.

An 18yr old dating a 15 yr old is like a 20 yr old dating a 17 yr old, which happens alllll the time.
