I want to say that the laws are very unjustified. I am dating a registered sex offender and I have children. I worry not about him doing anything to my chilren. My older children know of his issue and all are ok with him and ok with him being around their children. I am currently going through an issue with my youngest child's father because he found out about the charge and reported it to child services. I believe that laws should be determined on what your case involved and the level of violence that has occured. When a teenager consents to sex, the law says she can't, but yet if she kills someone, she can be tried as an adult because she knows the consequences to those actions, but yet can't decide if she wants to have sex or who she wants to have sex with and understand the consequences to her consent. Forgive me if I am wrong, but we were all teenagers once and I know that I knew the consequences to having sex as a teenager, because my parents tought me it. I had twin babies at 16 and stood up and took rsponsibility for that, consequences to my actions. They are now 21 and have children of their own. My point to this is, If you parent correctly, your child will know the consequences of all their choices. I think parents should not have the right to claim rape when the child said yes. I think many parents just can't accept that their child did this. I think they need someone to blame for their bad choice. In the process of that, they ruin people's lives. The consequences of being blamed of forced sex just because they were under age but consented, is ridiculous, it is life long. I believe that good people make bad choices sometimes. They should not have to pay with their life because of it. I support those offenders that are unjustly being labeled. I support those people who are just trying to move on with their life. Keep your heads up and believe me - one day - you will be free from this insanity. What goes around comes around. Although it may take time, you will be released from this burden one day. Just live the best you can and try to keep your head up. That is all you can at this point.

The run around is an understatement. As a female on the sex offenders list for "10 years". For something i didnt do.(Railroaded) I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and bad things do hapen to good people. I have had to move from place to place and state to state. I was very succesful and now i have been reduced to nothing. How does one go from a 10 year registry to lifetime? Now by Dec 20th 2012 sex offenders in my state Pa. have to submit a DNA sample? Where are MY right. I contact lawyers and no one wants to help. How does this keep getting worse? Death would be more rewarding than to have to go thru this stigma every single day.But i cant do that. I use to be a happy, someone who had so many friends. This has humbled me and changed me forever. Now i am lonley and dont know what to do. I So understand what you are going thru Lowlife4M from Sylvania, Ohio. Blessings!

probation dept.violated our son's probation and locked him up for being at a gentleman's club. They said the women at the club were "pornographic material" (he's not allowed to "view" porn). However, his case involved a teenager and not adult so they had to release him. The club had nothing to do with his "deviant behavior" as the law says it has to be before a violation occurs. We are suing for false arrest due to ignorance of law by probation dept. It's a constant battle with society due to the label. Those people out there that never have to deal with the tag are ignorant of what offenders have to go thru on a daily bases. Wake up America!

I remember going to school (40 years ago) and the teenage girls bragging about "dating" guys that were in their 20s. The girls today are even more promiscuous than they were 40 years ago. Where is the culpability factor? why is it just the older of the two that have consensual sex the one tagged for life. My son made one bad judgement call that will haunt him the rest of his life and his family's lives
The people that make these sex offender laws need to live a week being tagged just to see what kind of punishment it is. Most of the laws violate the cruel and unusual punishment clause of the 8th amendment. To be tagged for life is cruel and unusual punishment. Do a crime - do the time - move on. It's unbelievable how stupid our lawmakers and society actually are.

well i have to say that i can relate to the angered registered sex offenders as i am one that has to register as well. in 2004 i was convicted of low class sex convictions or at least they were suppose to be low class. i was sent to prison and completed my sentence, was released and placed on parole even though i flatened my time (full sentence). not saying what i did was right but, i was stroked as if i bombed the white house. the ironic thing is that i was classified at the highest level and didnt touch anyone, some justice system huh?

My step-son is a convicted sex offender. He made a bad judgement call with a girl saying she was 18 - not a virgin by no means. When my son found her out that she was 15 and A runaway from home he investigated and found her parents and called them thinking they would be worried about her. Our genius State's Attorney pressed the charges (the parents didn't want nothing to do with the system) you know the rest of the story. Sex offender. He didn't rape the girl - she was more than willing - what teenage girl isn't? When I was in school the girls would brag about having a 22 and 25 year old boyfriend. we were too immature they said. Anyway - when politicians make a bad judgement call they get a slap on the hand and are told "don't do it again". My son spent time in prison along with 10 years probation where punishment is an everyday ordeal. All he did was have sex with a trollop that wanted to have sex. She is happily married today with two kids and doesn't have a care in the world about my son. She doesn't even remember his name due to the numerous sex encounters since then. Yes the justice system hasn't a clue to the unfairness of labeling people with the scarlett letter of sex offender. We have filed a lawsuit in Federal court in Tampa Fl due to his probation officer locking him up for being at a gentleman's club. The officer didn't know the rules or was completely indifferent as to the law. She is a man hater and sex offender hater and has no business in the position she is in. You people that think the laws are helping keep your children safe are blind and stupid. Sex offenders have the lowest recidivism rate next to murderers. 3% return to prison because those are the sick ones that need to be kept in prison. The sex offenders that piss on a tree in the middle of the night are not the exception to the rule. They are juxtaposed right along side with the ones that rape little kids and kill them. Whoever thinks that is fair needs to have their head examined. Lawmakers make jerk knee laws on whims whenever a horrific crime occurs. They forget you don't sacrifice the many for one. Anyway - if you are a sex offender in the US, good luck to you and keep your head up and don't let the ignorant goody too shoe people get you down. You can only hope it will happen to a member of their family then they would understand. Then they would get their head out of their ass.

I feel your pain and your sense of injustice. I hope you are using this in your emails to senators and congressmen. There are many bills in for passing that need all our help.

We are 5 million strong now. One million registered and their family members. We can make a diference.

The link to my story is here.


We all need to find our voice, stand, then boldly speak out about this injustice.

I always try to help Felons an especially sex offenders get jobs if they are truck drivers.
So many people do not believe in second chances when it comes to the word sex offender.
I encourage everyone who can afford it to send money to the RSOL as they are doing their very best to improve our situation.
Good luck everone in this struggle to be accepted as a human being.

"violent" and "habitual" sex offenders should be kept off the streets, like several other posts in here, i screwed up when i was younger (almost 30 years ago) and it was non-violent, but I still have to register as a sex offender, Do you realize how difficult it is for me to find employment? I'm now over 50 years old, work isn't as available as it once was...

I wounder what they would do if no one registered
would they do a way with the registry or try to lock us all up?
Doing a way with the registry would save Billions in tax dollars and locking us all up would cost Billions in tax dollars.
I say we should send letters letting the government know that we will no longer register and see what happens.
Of course this will only work if we all do it not just a few So lets set a date and write the letters every one and your families.

Statistically, most sexual offenders are white, so they will get protection anyway. Protection in prison, less prison time than drug dealers, who are statistically minorities though its obvious there are whites with hands in the cookie jar. Rape doesn't involve profit either.
There is a lot of human trafficking in the US, but if our White brothers are involved more so then its not going to be on mainstream tv as much. I despise pedophiles, but they dont pay like they should until they kill someone to hide evidence. The people they hurt need the rights, not them, they want to play that game and ruin lives, they have to live with the consequences.

I think we should all send letters to John Walsh and ask him why murders should not be on a registry when his son was murdered (PROVEN). His body was not found so why did he advocate for stricter sex offender laws claiming his son was molested when they couldn't prove it. His MURDER was proven but he pushes for harsher SEX OFFENDER laws because HE THINKS his son was molested. Put murders on a national registry! I am so sick of sex offenders getting a bad wrap because they made a poor choice. My family member did not stalk or force their "victim". The "victim" was not a child. Do I agree with what choice my family member made? NO! but they did their time. Now they are trying to find a job and help provide for their family. My ENTIRE family is paying for the choice because society convicts us along with the actual offender. What crime did we committ? Yes, I stand by my family in rejoining society 100%! If you do not personally know a sex offender or their family then you have NO RIGHT to condem any of us! If your life was put on display for everyone to dissect what would we find out about you that you consider a poor choice you once made? Should you suddenly be put on a registry? For all of you who want to complain about supporting sex offenders outside of prison then write your congressman and tell them to drop this sex offender registration. Otherwise, pay for sex offenders outside or pay 45,000 dollars a year for an offender to be inside. Now that I have pissed off alot of hypocrites that like to judge others, let the hate comments roll! Unless your name is GOD you have no right to judge anyone!

I agree with you completely! As the parent of that guy you are just as guilty by association. 99.9% of society couldn't handle walk in a sex offender's shoes for 1/2 of a day. Family and friends of sex offenders need to united together as well as uniting with the sex offenders.
