Some of you make me laugh with all the hate posting. You heard the word "sex offender" and think child molestor. You should do more research and learn what makes you a sex offender in FL. As for someone asking if and 18 sleeping with a 17 would be a sex offender it depends on the DA. Florida'a age of consent is 16 now but a bill has been sponsored to change it to 18. But federal law say's age of consent is 18. So yes they could be tried under a federal crime. Every city has passed laws preventing where they can live so they are at one of the few places they can live but yet some still won't blodd. Wonder if this is how all those woman in Mass felt when they were burning them for being a witch. And to answer someones elses post yes most do not reoffend. Look it up instead of posting based on a myth. The child molestors and rapist are the ones that are not cured. But the term sex offender lumps everyone together so you can really tell. The laws need to be rewritten to make sure the real threat stays locked up.
" You heard the word "sex offender" and think child molestor. " That is the common perception of most people. Here in nastyville men are charged as sex offenders if the take a leak outside, even if they are out of public view. This is just part of the extent of how crazy it is here. It is a wonder they don't consider scratching your covered butt a sex offense.

I agree men who are secure in their heterosexuality don't really give a crap one way or the other about what gay men do in bed. I am one of only two females who work with 14-20 males and know this. I guess the poster doesn't know that Crist has been said to be still in the closet and getting married to hide it.

There is nothing but a strip of run down, cheap, drug infested motels out there. No tourist in their right minds would drive up, look around and stay there. I would live in a box before I stayed at any of the motels in that area, that is how bad they are.

We real heterosexuals get tired of the same old propaganda about how our masculinity it threatened or how we're really latent blueboys if we disapprove of the gay lifestyle.
I don't like them, don't associate with them and don't approve of their lifestyle. I'm not quite sure how that makes me anything more than a normal guy.
Of course the talking points you all make does sound good but is based only on conjecture. Real guys don't approve of them but we do love good looking lesbians and love to see two in the act. It's a double standard but we don't care.

I have to agree with some of you on here soon as someone hears the word sex offender the just start assumming its something dealing with a child before you even get to know that person or the facts of their case I am from michigan and recently moved down here and if your 16 or 17 there dating/having sex with a 15 year old they put you in jail then your on that list for the rest of your life and i know how bad it ruins somebodys life my husband is on that damn list and does not deserve to be on it. he was in a first time offenders program in michigan has nothing on his record cause its sealed but still has to be on that list i beleave if they go thru a program like that they should get their second chance because he didnt do anything i have know him since i was 13 years old and he was 14 i know the person he is inside and out and i am 26 now and have been with him for 11 years on and off and he cant even find a good job to support me him and our family because of that f**cking list and people out there who just assume before know the facts or anything i think its a bunch of bullsh*t I do beleave men like him who have went to jail and gone thru all the programs should have a full second chance and not have to be on that list so atleast then they get a chance to have a normal life and raise their family like a normal human being, not almost everytime you get pulled over a cop assume that your gonna hurt the kids in you backseat and have to listen to some cops belittle you because that doesnt help either when your trying to live a normal happy life with your wife and kids. but know this is something me and my family will have to deal with for the rest of our life and i will stand by his side every minute of it because i know him and he didnt do anything, he is the most sweet kind careing person i know who is willing to help anyone even if it means giving a person the last few dollars in his pocket...and hes one of the greatest fathers i know who just wants to beable to take care of his family and raise his kids. people really need to think and not just assume the worst..........

Be very careful about a convicted sex offender who lives at:

920four 66th St Lot 16
Pinellas Park, FL 33782
Name is Jay Childers...the guy frequents "manboy" websites and advocates the sexual relationships between adults and pre-teen boys. This freak list a "how to" list on positioning pedophiles to attract victims...he also advocates how to lie about charges listed on the FDLE site. Since the site isnt specific he "laughs" that after he tells his "story" people actually feel sorry for him..I reseached this poor excuse for DNA, pretty good this am..if you think you arent surrounded by guys who wouldnt tear your childrens world apart on any given day and "laugh about it" think again!

Why don't you report him to the law enforcement in his area? If he's on probation, he would probably be violated and sent to prison. Even if he's not on probation it could go against him...

You know not all sex offenders are child molesters or rapists some like myself were 18 and had sex with a 16 year old I get tired of all the judgement when in reality 90 percent of men when they were in high school had sex with a girl that was either a freshmen of sophomore which is what happened to me so at least educate yourself before speaking and look at each offenders situation before lumping them all together as "childmolesters" etc. Grow up and get a life. Becouse of people like u it is hard for my wife and family to find housing and feel safe. We both work hard and pay taxes and yet we get shit on I was 18 when this shit happned and im almost 31 and still paying the price.

Good. Keep paying it. Your wife is a moron for marrying a pervert and here's a rule that perverts should have to follow-you should NEVER be permitted to reproduce your defective genes. Did being a pervert keep you from learning basic English and spelling, too? Maybe your illiteracy is the real reason you can't get a decent job.

Well, you're no Mary Kay Letourneau. She tried to make it like it was all about love, had two kids with an underaged teen, served her sentence and then married the object of her obsession. Now, they have faded into obscurity. The "boy" she "mentored" was no prize except in her mind.

What kind of time did you serve or was it all probation? What is the legal age to marry in Cali without a parents' consent? Never mind. I'll look it up.

You are all disgusting. My husband had a teenage girlfriend when he was a teenager. The father pressed charges, being an overly protective father, the girl admitted consent and now my husband myself and my daughter are all having to live in a world being persecuted by you ignorant people. Right now we can't find a home for us and our 4 year old little girl because of this notion that sex offenders are scum. People who molest and prey on children should be under the watch of the community but your so called government has decided to lump everyone together. Maybe learn the laws and see how unfair your government and media are. And good for the orlando sentinel for helping families or people affected by this to have somewhere other than the street to turn too. A lot better than hearing about car crashes and ignorant criminals. Go to the Florida action committee website And see the federal government did a study on the sex registry and living restrictions placed on all levels of sex offenders. Guess what they found, my ignorant friends?! They found that it has not made our streets safer, it has caused in increase in crime, an increase in reoffending from predators, and has shown to tear apart families. So if that's what you want for your community, plz by all means keep supporting the persecution of registered sex offenders. Listen to the government you backed all along. They can admit they were wrong. Can you? You want to be safe work to change the laws. Release the people who don't deserve it And make laws tighter on the people who do without leaving them in the streets where they can harm someone. When a sex offender is homeless they can't be checked up on And they have to pay $25 a week to change their ids to stay in a homeless status. And if you're smart you will understand that's why many go missing without supervision because homeless can't afford to be supervised. Educate yourself And pass it on if you want true safety for your families. And as for gays, most of them are better people than you. Upstanding caring members of society and just one more group of people persecuted by ignorance. The actions of the few destroy the reputations of many.

Long winded there don't ya think? You call everyone here ignorant. It seems you are the ignorant one. Don't break the law in a sexual manner and you won't be labeled as such.
