it doesn't take very much for someone to be named a sex offender. if you were to walk through wallmart, you will se many older men looking at the butts of nice looking young ladies, because of what they have written on their shorts, eat me , bite me , cheer , and so on, and the parent can say he was looking at or even say he was stalking her daughter, and its her word against him and he is placed on the offenders list. as it was posted earlier, not all sex offenders deserve to be on that list, for a one time thing, with no reoffence for years, dont make that person a threat, that is if it was not a felony rape, molestation, or malice rape, you know what i mean, but not all should be treated the same as a preditor, and the repeats and threats should be on the list but the ones trying to start their lives back in a matter like before should be left alone.

I don't know...if you don't like the law, then don't have sex with anyone under the age and you won't really have to worry about it. Personally, yes, if a 16 yr old had sex with my 14 yr old I would have a REAL problem with it. Those of you who don't get that explain why there are so many teen pregnancies in the county of Polk. At 14, you do not have the mental mechanics to consent and are easily coerced and taken advantage of. You people clearly do not have daughters-or you just don't give a shit..either way, I'm happy to hear that sex offenders are having it rough. Let's hope that doesn't change.

What people are you talking about who "clearly do not have daughters"? There is no such "clear" thing here. For the record, Christopher does have a sister who is 4 years younger than him, and she was raised with the same love, attention, and discipline he was. And before you ask....no... she has never been in any "trouble" of any kind.

As for the 14 y/o issue you mention, go back to (what is now) page 1 in this topic. See what I said about the physical AND mental maturity of the girl whom, as I stated, later became my daughter-in-law and had a second child with my son. If you were to talk to her back then, you never...I repeat...never would have known she was as young as she was.

I entered this online "conversation" to bring attention to the fact that, as I've said multiple times, Not all "sex offenders" are created equal. My son (and others in the same situation)should not have to suffer the same consequences as those who ARE a danger to children. At the time that this law went into effect, my son was 2 weeks away from being removed from the sex offender list.

Believe me, if you had a son in my son's position, you would feel differently about him "having it rough". If it were only my son I had to worry about, then it might not be quite as difficult to deal with, but we are talking about my grandchildren here. They are the ones who are ultimately suffering. NOT because of what Christopher did....because of what the STATE did to him. He was supporting his girls from his first wife (the so-called "victim"), and his current wife and their boys. Now he can no longer do that because the state has said, "there is no place you will be allowed to live or work in the state of GA". I only hope that none of you EVER have to experience what my family has gone through. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy's children or grandchildren.

I'm done here. Thank you to those who have shown support and to the rest of you who have shown your ignorance...you are welcome to all your ugly, misguided fun.
