I think its retarded parents need to know where their kids are and who they are with and what they are doing. no matter what you do there will always be sexual abuse. the problem is improper supervision. stop worryin where the offenders are and watch ur dam kids. and not all offenders are in trouble for the same thing I know a guy who is a sex offender because when he was 17 he was dating a 13 year old. they lied to him on a plea bargan that stated he had to register for 12 years as a sex offender and also he would not appear on the sex offender websites. but if you register its either ten years or life time. and at the time the law was any crime involving a minor you do appear on the website. I hate anyone that would go out and rape or malest a child but its not right to classify all sex offenders as a threat. I care a lot about my friend and I worry about him not that he will re-offend but that he will harm himself because of all the stress he is going through. If you want a story speak to attorney Ryan Mitchell of Ottumwa Ia and ask why he mislead to at least two people both being charged with sex abuse 3rd. into taking a plea bargan that contained lies.
