WHY ARE THE LEVEL 2 OFFENDERS NOT REGISTERD, IF THEY ARE AT ALL A RISK WHY SHOULDN'T THE PUBLIC KNOW WHO THEY ARE BEFOR LETTING OUR CHILDREN NEAR THEM
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Jan 23, 2006 05:45 PM
Logic says, If they become a Level 1 then they could become a level 2 and then a Level 3. So if each level is a greater degree of offence then why I am I not offered the opportunity to intervene and prevent my children from exposure to a level 1 offender. Why do we have to wait until an offender actually performs a level 3 offence to expose them for who they are???

why would you wait for him to attach another victum? that child would be meassed up for the rest of their life after that. one you put your hands on a child or anyone else you should lose ALL of your rights and never be released from jail. sex affenders are not "sick" in a sense that it can be cured. it CAN NOT BE CURRED!!! NEVER!!!!

To the writer above:
You life in Fear and living in fear is only half living. Someone...the church or television, has you believing offenders must reoffend. I have lived 23 years without reoffending and there are thousands just like me out there. Psychotherapy and understanding the abuse we may have also suffered, can lead to freedom. The real curse, is from those of you who have incorrect information about sexual offense. Your registry causes much harm to people's jobs and in many cases to the children and families of ex offenders. This registry protects no one. If you would just think: You can not possibly follow all of this without being nuerotic! It was designed by the Federal Govt to create a false sense of security. All it does, apparently, is create more fear. Since the registry expanded in my state, there have been 8-9 more cases reported since Nov. NONE of the offenders were on the registry. It is time for education and for you to begin to look inward to your own sins.

I wish that general public could more easily access the information. I work with youth and adults, alone, daily. I would like to find an access to find out any level sexual offense to protect myself and otehrs who may be around. I would agree with some comments made below. Ignorance about sexual offenders causes hype and fear. I also work with sexual offender (youths) and I must say over half have not reoffended, have good lifes and are doing well, but they were taken at young ages to get help, after being offended and not knowing a betetr way of life, but to offend, Those we catch earlier can be trained, those tooo late will not change. Firm believe. Each case is different. My goal is to educate younger to prevent the trauma from occuring and repeating itself.

Minnesota is becoming a safe haven for all these scumbags. Time for us to kick out all our bleeding heart state represenatives and get some hard ass legislators to work in our state. They recently wanted to build a housing facility for sex offenders in Rochester Mn. We are talking just blocks away from schools, day cares, and parks! Tina Liebling is trying to help these scum bags integrate into our neighborhoods. Please e-mail this disgraceful Minnesota represenative with your thoughts on how we feel about such a disgusting measure. The community fought back and said no way! But now they will just keep looking for another place. Let her know we will not tolerate these scumbags living amongst our children! Minnesota needs to get tough and it needs to adopt "Jessica's Law".

Ok did you know it's a SEX OFFENCE if you pee on the street? or Flash? that makes you a level 1... some of these posts im reading arn't very logical. I think most of you are just being paranoid
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Jul 12, 2006 11:34 PM
I HAVE A SMALL CHILD AND ANOTHER ON THE WAY AND I KNOW THAT I WANT TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE SURE MY CHILDREN ARE SAFE. I UNDERSTAND THAT MANY OFFENDERS HAVE ALSO BEEN ABUSED THEMSELVES, BUT WHY SHOULD MY CHILDREN HAVE TO PAY FOR THAT PERSONS SUFFERING? IF YOU HAVE COMMITED ANY SEXUAL OFFENSE TO A CHILD OR HAVE RAPPED YOU SHOULD BE ON A SEXUAL OFFENDER LIST. TO THE PERSON WHO SAID THAT YOU CAN BE CONVICTED OF A SEX CRIME FOR FLASHING I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THEY SHOULD BE IF THEY ARE FLASHING IN FRONT OF CHILDREN. IT'S NOT RIGHT. THESE ARE INNOCENT CHILDREN AND I WANT TO KNOW IF ANY OFFENDER IS LIVING ANY WHERE NEAR MY CHILDREN. IN MY OPINION THEY ARE TOO EASY ON SEX CRIMES. THESE PEOPLE HAVE MORE RIGHTS THEN THE VICTIMS DO IT'S OUTRAGEOUS

I got a resolution to all this if anyone ever touched my child id bet you my life they wouldnt have theres end of problem now if everyone thought the same we wouldnt have to classify these sick excuse of a humanbeing we have learened to call offenders when we all know offender is a nice word for childmolester. I think the problem is we are being to civil about this but then again i think we are to civil about many things and one more thing about the post for people fighting to try and get these people into neiborhoods let it happen to there kids when did it come to making money was more iportant then protecting our future"kids" what goes through there sick minds.

I completely agree with the fact Level 1 sex offenders should not be listed. Level 1 can consist of any sexually deviant act which may have nothing to do with children. On the other hand, Level 2 and Level 3 offenders are the most likely perpetrators, and should be listed in the Minnesote Registery.
Posted by Concerned Mom (not registered) on Jul 31, 2006 06:22 PM
To the poster who mentioned it, we don't wish to associate with people who pee on the street or people who "flash" and we certainly have a right to keep our children away from them. It isn't paranoia, it's civility and something our country could use considerably more of. If you're to peeing in the street or flashing in public or convicted of any other Level 1 offense, yes, we'd like you to register so we can avoid - at the very least - walking in front of your home with our children.

Not all registered sex offenders are really sex offenders. I know one registered sex offender that did not offend anyone other than the city official. The offender was dating a girl in high school. Their ages were 3 yrs and 2 months apart. They had dated for 2 1/2 years and were thinking of getting married after high school was over. He turned 18, she became pregnant and went to the city for help with the hospital delivery bill. The social workers and police got together and filed charges against him because of his age difference (not the girl or the parents). If that were the case all along, my wife & I (37 yrs of marriage 7 yr age difference), my mom & dad (54 yrs of marriage 17 yr age difference), my wife's mom & dad (14 yrs marriage 5 yrs age difference) would all be considered sex offenders. Think about it, you too could be a sex offender in someone's eyes, just ask your child.

I for one think ALL sex offenders should be registared, I am a victim of a sex crime and have been searching for the guy who did it and am having no luck. I know some of you may think its sick that I am looking for him but I need to know where he's at so I can feel safe.
I think all offenders should registar just because of the fact, I dont want them around my kids and if they move into my neighborhood I would move wether they flashed someone or pissed on the sidewalk, My kids dont need to see any of that.And to the one who was talking about the age differences, people should be punished for statatory rape. Its wrong, Its sick and they deserve to be caught, its just there sick way of raping a volnerable child without calling it rape or molesting.

Level Ones should also be listed. My nephew molested at his own mothers day care. Ok, he got busted, the day care closed. They moved. They were told to let family members know about what happened. It was not told to anyone in t he family excpet the grandparents and then he molested again....his own cousin. I am sickened by this. I blame my sister and parents for not tellling my brother....he would of never been left alone with him and it would of never happened. The law needs to list eveyone....they recommit...even after they get inb trouble!!

To the last person commenting, that sounds like a family issue. My son ONE TIME assaulted his niece when he was 15 and she was 2. No I have never defended his behavior, but he is my son and I love him, and my granddaughter. This almost destroyed our family. We hung in there and communicated and we are still 4 years later working through it. We spent $8000+ on counseling and no we didn't have the best attorney, just the public defender. After counseling my son was deemed "highly unlikely" to reoffend. Yes that can happen. My son is not sick, he's not a deviant, just a young man who is learning disable and ADHD with social issues needing to wrk through. The big deal is as an adjudicated juvenile adult, he will have to register as a sex offender until he is 27 years old. We live in a small county in Cenral MN and we were told by his counselor from Minneapolis, that if his offense had occurred in the Cities, he would have had short time on probation and that would be it. He cannot vote, he cannot own a weapon even for hunting, he can't move about freely even to visit his older brother in AZ and when applying for jobs he has to list that he has a felony record. He hasn't even started a career and he is stopped dead in his tracks. You think that this hopes the whole situation when one's self esteem is lowered when this may (I never went through counseling so I don't know) have been partly the blame. Not all offenders have been abused themselves. I'm not aware (nor my sone) of any abuse to him. Please keep these people in your prayers as they fight demons in their lives everyday and we are not the ones to judge. God will give them their day.

I was sexually abused at the age of 9 to the age of 13 until i moved out and moved in with my dad. I'm 16 now going on 17 and the things he did to me would be level 3, the courts said we had a good case but they wont get off their ass and do anything about it. People PROTECT YOUR CHILDEREN! the way my mother never did because she loved him more than she could love us. You do not want your childeren to go through this, you dont want your childeren to be fondled, I'm still trying to get the life i never had and there are long-term problems that i will never be able to overcome. I agree that people who are not even level 3 should be registered as sex offenders! And as for the man who did this, he's still out there, living his perfect life, and he became a youth group leader at his church for childeren, how SICK IS THAT!?????!!!!!

I would like to Thank the St. Louis Sheriff"s Dept for throwing my daughter under the bus!!! When she was molested by Scott Edney Bennett at age 13 she did nothing but sleep with a knife under her pillow. At the age of 16 she cried for help and they questioned Scott, he denied but the deputy said he believed Scott had done something but couldn't prove it, her word against his.....isn"t that in all cases!?!?!? WELL, now my daughter is 26 and 2 years ago her stepdad admited to molesting her!!! THANK FOR NOTHING!!!!

To the ex offender who posted a comment saying that not all offenders re-offend, screw you. You probably are doing it now but just haven't been caught. Since Minnesota is so lenient on offenders I have truly vowed to take matters into my own hands if anyone ever touched my child. Time to go back to public hangings as far as i'm concerned.

Minnesota needs Jessica's Law. I find it disgusting we do not have it, and our state leaders are truly scum for not wanting to enforcing it. Minnesota obviously does not give a crap about kids and their safety or their littles lives for that matter.

You know , if we just watch our children better and educate people to be more aware. I mean I dont see you people getting upset when there are drunk drivers killing people(children in cars too) Its a rough world out there. Eventeually everyone will have to register for something they did. Think about that.

Warren James Connors raped my 16 year old daughter (he was 36) He put her on her stomach so she couldn't fight back. All he was charged with was a level 5 Mis. Unconsentual sex he is out now walking the streets of Cloquet looking for his next 16 year old or maybe he'll try a younger one this time. We need to wake up and push for stronger laws to protect our children. I was told he had a simular offense in WI , MN did not even know he was in the state and he was going to the Fond Du Lac College. WATCH, ASK, PAY ATTENTION to the people around you. He slipped into our state unnoticed how many more are there??

ok so its definatly not right that these people get to go back out on the street. i read somewhere that the govurnment is trying to keep our neighborhoods safe, and how the heck are we and our community keeping them safe but letting them back into neighbor hoods with children. let alone people for that matter. yes theyve been treated and "cured" but how do we know that they are forsurely cured and that theyre not just gonna snapp one day ??? and just wondering but how is registering themm gonna help os otehr than the fact that we have to be more precautious around them....how do we no that they arnt gonna do it again even though they may have to be watched...

what the hell does level 3 mean? I know someone who was 19 and his girlfriend was 16 and they both was willing and they got cought now he has to every year list him self as a offender? What I don't get we have to know who is in our neighborhood when we have children, but we don't get that right, the offenders should not have the right to be out on the streets with out being casterated.... can they be helped I say no they might say oh that will never ever happen again......but they do. That is our problem if our children want to go out side to play in the yard.....and gets yanked out of our yard.... That is the parents falt....I will beg the differ. Or if the children want to go out on a church outting and one of the "Teachers" was once one of the offenders....how would we know if we don't know.... I knew one of those kids and knew or thought we knew the "Teachers" but till it happend and charges was pressed is then we found out he was a pedifile. So why do parents have no rights or neighbors have no rights to know if they live next door or even go to our church. WE SHOULD HAVE THAT RIGHT THEY SHOULD HAVE NO RIGHTS AT ALL, THEY DID THE CRIME we did not ask for it nor did our children.

To think that these offenders are just immediately cut off from all family and friends is nonsense, look at your loved ones and REALLY consider if you would want them to get HELP or just shun them (and its proven that offenders without family support reoffend at a high rate...those with support RARELY do!)
People are right, an offender who is guilty should serve their time and get treatment (usually its for some childhood issues that had never been addressed, and NOW they will have the oppotunity to examine those problems with the help of trained proffessionals)
There are still child, wives, mothers, etc that are involved, and often become victims themselves due to parnoid fear. Its not fair that we make more victims by attacking, isn't that exactly what we DON'T want in a functionable and SAFE (for everyone) society.
And there a various degrees of offenders, and it does matter, not everyone is a MANIC, mentally ill individual that will reoffend without a doubt, its not the norm. Read up, educate yourself and loved ones, but make sure you have the CORRECT information..there is a LOT of stats out there about the actual number of reoffenses, success of treatment, and WHO is more likely to reoffend.
Posted by Hmm (not registered) on Feb 01, 2007 12:55 AM
How about you all freaking chill out. One of the lower levels might have just been "wrong place at the wrong time" or a girlfriend CRYING RAPE when it wasn't really true, because yes, there are women in this world that do that, and guys as well (because they can be victims too). Seriously.. cry more!
Posted by Ramsey Resident (not registered) on Feb 02, 2007 11:39 AM
I' like the fact we can actually see a picture of the offender...and their last know address..I like to be aware of what's going on around us. The more information the better.
P.S. Check your spelling people!

Does this registry work? I recently attended a government meeting held on this topic in which the law enforcement agencies were informed that the statistics show the registry does not work. That in fact, it takes money away from agencies that help prevent abuse. Even he department of Justice studies will say that a good job, safe home and enviornment lowers the probability of the offender reoffending. Those who say this registry is working are on the side getting DOJ funds and grants. It again comes down to the buck. This year, my state is passing more offender laws. Now they even openly discuss the federal dollars coming their way. $$$ More public safety officers. More computer crime units, more software, more police. (not for the increased traffic accidents and bank robberies and crimes)
another thought: Why don't we hear any more on Congressman Foley? Is he on the FLA registry yet? No. He was the chairman on the committee that pushed the registry. One law for all???
And they want to know why this keeps happening to our children, and possiable theirs. The laws are not harsh enough on these Mental Cases that continue to prey, and until something some how gets done it will continue to keep on happening.
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Feb 08, 2007 06:25 PM
This "knee-jerk" law is ridiculous! People just want false security...like Homeland Security---what have they done??? HONESTLY!!! Open your eyes folks! If we are making everyone who is a "sex" offender register- I want to see the bastards with DUI registered, public intox, manslaughter, drug possesion, and whatever crime they have done. I want them registered because I want to know where they work, live, travel, etc so I can ostricize and ridicule their mistakes- put their family and jobs at stake.
Get the facts- sex offenders have a 3.5% chance of reoffense. They are 90% likely to be YOUR FAMILY member or someone you KNOW. (Harvard study done in 2005). The chance of re-offense happens within 1.5 years. I have been researching this topic for law school. This list provides ZERO protection for your children.
FACE IT people.... you can't protect what is an UNKNOWN. Since most sex offenders are a one-time issue, how will you know WHO it is and WHO your child should not be around?? It's like trying to figure out who the "murderer" is........(which by the way....DO NOT have a registry for) PS...THEY DO GET OUT OF JAIL.
My favorite thing to debate with this topic is this- how many sex offenders have brutally murdered and killed someone? How many drunk drivers have killed someone? Which is MORE prevalent in our society? Who is a BIGGER threat to killing our loved ones?
Let's be honest folks...."knee jerk" laws DO NOT SAVE LIVES- NOR DO THEY PROTECT LIVES. If you can HONESTLY tell me you will research and MEMORIZE every face, every name, every aspect of their offense, etc of every sex offender on the list.....then maybe you can "protect" your children.
I am going to do what a realist will do- I am going to EDUCATE my children about what is appropriate behavior, when someone should not be touching them that way. I am going to teach my son...not to have sex with ANY girl that is younger than him until she is at least 18. Get real folks...once your child is a certain age- it's time for them to take accountability for their own actions. It also starts with SEX EDUCATION at a YOUNGER AGE.
SO many issues.....and TOO MANY STUPID people trying to make a "QUICK FIX" to the "problem".
Posted by Becky (not registered) on Feb 19, 2007 09:19 PM
Chances are that there is a sex offender on your block. You are better off just teaching your children about personal safety and communication and surrounding yourself with decent people than freaking out about the people on this list. The percentage of sex crimes that happen by people who are known offenders is significantly less than the people who are unknown. If you teach your children about the dangers of strange people and teach them to communicate when something is wrong, there is no need to point out offenders. The rules should apply to everyone, that is how you keep kids safe.

If Couey had been sentenced for 25-life, Jessica would still be alive. Facts are facts, child molesters do NOT stop,they keep brutalizing children until they are forced to stop. And the only way to force them to stop is removing them from society. What kind of society allows children to be victimized when it knowingly could have been prevented. I say give them the death penalty, but there are too many bleeding heart people out there who would never go for that. I realize housing these scum in prison would be expensive, but what kind of price tag can you put on the life of a child? Maybe Congress should take a pay cut to help pay for thier imprisionment.

WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN!!! No registry, no law, nothing is going to do that but we as parents. I happen to live in the same area as Jessica's dad, the regular bar hopper, who now lives quite nice off the tragedy that happened to his daughter. Yes there are people out there that need to be locked up, forever...but the fact remains it is our job as parents to protect our children...PERIOD!

here is my thing all you people want tougher laws, "LOCK THEM ALL UP" you say. Well get this I have a friend that his daughter said that he molested her just because she didnt want to live with him anymore, she wanted to go live with her mom. He has taken 3 different lie detector test and passed all of them. The daughter later confessed that she that she LIED! Guess what?? He is STILL be prosecuted. all because you people want the laws to be harder on those accused of this crime. Remember this Not all are guilty just because they are accused!!!

I find many of you rediculous - comparing drunk drivers to rapists and whether a molester will reoffend. Sexually assualting a beautiful little girl or boy is mortifiying to even think about just as them being killed by a drunk driver. The memory of what was done to them will always be with them. They'll think about it when they're 25 and getting ready for work in the morning. They'll think about when they're 80 and somebody else has to help them get dressed. Yes they're still here and alive unlike getting killed by a drunk driver but I (as a mother) am sickened to death about something so horrible possibly having the chance of happening to one of my kids. Both would kill your baby; if not on the outside then within and I don't know any loving sensible parent who would want to go through either above the other.
As for reoffending - they all deserve to rot in hell and thats where they should be. Make it a no chance offer! I know if anybody would lay a finger on one of my kids without their permission they'd be laying 6 feet under. Level 1 or not.

To Feb 21 above. Facts? Then lets use them. 1. The chance of sex offenders reoffending diminish as time passes. 2. A safe and secure job and enviornment lessens the chance of re offending. Read some of the Department Of Justice "facts" on this issue, please. Not all offenders reoffend. The amount of sexual offending has decreased...yes decreased in the past decade. Society is being lulled into thinking they are safe from offenders, who by the way, are often someone in the family or CLOSE to the family.
The majority of missing children are kidnapped by one of their own parents! Such in custody cases. We really need more education on this issue.

Posted by x/s/o (not registered) on Mar 16, 2007 08:12 PM
Now for a few Dept of Justice statistics ....real facts rather than fear based thinking.
"On a given day in 1994 there were approximately 234,000 offenders convicted of rape or sexual assault under the care, custody, or control of corrections agencies; nearly 60% of these sex offenders are under conditional supervision in the community.
The median age of the victims of imprisoned sexual assaulters was less than 13 years old; the median age of rape victims was about 22 years.
An estimated 24% of those serving time for rape and 19% of those serving time for sexual assault had been on probation or parole at the time of the offense for which they were in State prison in 1991.
Of the 9,691 male sex offenders released from prisons in 15 States in 1994, 5.3% were rearrested for a new sex crime within 3 years of release. "
So where are the rest? They have rebuilt their lives and are rejoining the community in hopefully a positive manner.

I personally believe that people need to take responsibility for their actions and not blame them on anything that happened to them in their past. There is always a moment before you do something when you know whether it is right or wrong-period. You change a person's life forever when you sexually assault them. It takes away their dignity, self-esteem and their feeling of safety. No one should be able to kidnap someone and walk out of jail. Noone should be able to rape someone and walk out of jail. Noone should be able to sexually assault a child in any manner and walk out of jail. If you prey upon the most vulnerable in society (children) you deserve to be in jail forever. The consequences need to be stiffer and longer penalties for offenders. Hopefully this will detour people who would perpetrate these crimes. I would rather have people guilty of crimes involving drugs and "white collar crime" out on probation than these folks who clearly present a threat to the public. Offenders say they deserve a second chance, what do their victims say? Sexual abuse has an impact on a life that does not go away. Build more jails, raise taxes, let other criminals out. I want these people behind bars.

I have read a number of the posts and I felt compelled to post my own opinion. I have read a couple that seem to have the notion that what's the big deal with a level one offender, it's a one time mistake. uh...I'm sorry. One time mistake is a mistake. PERIOD. No, it's not okay to "pee in the street" or "flash" a child. Keep your d*** in your pants and not out for kids to see. What's wrong with you?!? Also, I've read some whining about how registering as an offender ruins their lives and embarrasses them. Well but of course it's ok to ruin the lives of innocent children, who will forever remember some idiot's dirty hands all over them or what have you. See that's the problem. Accepting responsibility for one's mistakes. It appears that in a couple comments from those believing it's ok to flash or aw poor me, i had to register as a sex molester, the anonymous person is failing to accept responsibility (or they just don't have a full concept of right vs. wrong) for their actions. You have one life and one chance to create your life and create your reputation. When one screws that up by breaking the law and messing with children, then you know what? Deal with it. Deal with the community hating you, deal with the embarrassment, and deal with your consequences. Get help. Great. But don't expect pity, don't expect understanding, and don't expect to be forgiven. Because it's pretty hard for the parent or any normal person to forgive that kind of an offense.

My son was molested by his Uncle, after a year of playing the States Games (which is honestly the truth) he decided to take a Plea Bargen of 7 years prision time, with time served for credit of good behavior, which will allow him to searve 85% percent of a 7 year sentence. He had three charges against him in which were all true, but The State wanted this to be over and brush the rest under the carpet because it costs the State so much money the more it lengers on, and the more time thats put into the cases, so he was charged with count #3 Lewd/Lasc Molestation of Child-Def 18 &Vic Less Than 12, Count #2 is basicly the same as Count #3, and count #1 was Sexual Battery Upon Person Under Twelve YOA, As a Mother I wish the State would be harder on these Offenders, I have seen my son go from a happy, loveing, careing child, too someone my hearts breaks for everyday due to the pain, and Trama his Preditor caused. Alot of people think the Goverment is correct, and the State on these issues, I am telling you as someone who has been there for a sadd situation, that is not true but false, and as far as them being harder on these offenders, thats not true either, Especially in the State of Florida.

First, if you cannot spell, you should not post.
I think everyone who has been arrested should wear a 666 tattoo on their forehead. We also should raise the income tax rate to 90% and also start a "1 school for 1 child" program whereas every single child in 'merica has a school. 1 school, 1 child. Period. We will be assured to have the smartest children in the world.
not everyome can spell correctly, and they are on this sight just for reasons as you. Before you go on telling people to spell correctly, make sure you space your words out, people can not understand if they are all bunched together. I am sure that upset you did it not? Maybe Thats because people on this sight type with meaning, and heart, not too start off as a smartass. Tammy (Hexgirl)

But when your spelling is THAT bad.... We're talking 3rd grade words spelled wrong, honey. Write with your heart - that is fine. But just realize that multiple spelling errors in your writing are going to make you appear to be ignorant.

Most sex offenders (at least minimum of 95%) are not the murders that you hear of on T.V and some are even people who had sex with a girl who lied about her age. You would be amazed at the amount of people who fall in to this category and know are labeled for life. This has turned in to a witch hunt for the time and politics are using this to get votes. Do the research your self and you will find out has I have.

SPELLING SHOULD BE THE LEAST WOORY ON THIS SIGHT, IF PEOPLE JUDGE HOW SOMEONE SPELLS THEY NEED TO LOOK AT THE MAIN CONCEARN HERE WHICH IS SEXUAL OFFENDERS, AND CHAT ON KNOWLEDGE SOME OF US DO NOT HAVE TO HELP PARENTS WHOM HAVE CHILDREN. I FEEL THAT IF PEOPLE SPELL WRONG IT DOES COME FROM THE HEART BECAUSE IT SHOWS THEY ARE IN TUNE TOO THE TOPIC AND WHAT THEY ARE STATEING IS FROM THE HEART, NOT EVERYONE IS A SPELLING BEE, AND IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY COME FROM A CERTAIN GRADE LEVAL. THE POINT IS THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO TYPE AND IF ITS SPELLED WRONG WHO CARES THIS SIGHT IS NOT ABOUT SPELLING, ITS ABOUT MOLESTAION, AND SEX OFFENDERS, AND TO COME TOGETHER TO HELP ONE ANOTHER WEITHER YOU SPELL CORRECTLY OR NOT. IF YOUR NAMES WHAT IT REALLY SAYS THAT APPEARS UP FRONT AS YOUR USER NAME THEN THATS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE, IF NOT GO ON A SIGHT WITH TRYING TO HELP 3RD GRADERS SPELL. HONEY!
I THINK NOT EVERYONE CAN SPELL WORDS CORRECTLY, AND IT DOES NOT MAKE THEM LOOK ANY WAY, THEY ARE ON THIS SIGHT TO TYPE, AND THINK ABOUT IT IF THEY DO MISS SPELL A WORD, MAYBE THEY ARE JUST INTO THEIR STORY, OR ARE UPSET WHILE THEY TYPE BECAUSE OF THE SITUATION THEY MIGHT BE IN. I CAN NOT SPELL EVERYTHING CORRECTLY, BUT I STILL WILL CONTINUE TO TYPE. I MAY NOT HAVE A THIRD GRADE SPELLING PROBLEM, BUT THEN AGAIN WHO CARES IF I OR SOMEONE DOES ITS NO BIG DEAL, PEOPLE WHO READ THIS TO JUDGE HOW WE SPELL IS NOT ON THIS SIGHT FOR THE CORRECT REASONS, AND IF SOMEONES COMMENT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND SKIP IT AND GO ON TO THE NEXT ONE. ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT HONEY. TAMMY (HEXGIRL)

It doesn't matter the level, sex offender or not...People should be pay more attention to their kids and what they are doing. Just because someone is a level 3 doesn't mean they are going to re-offend, just like because someone isn't a sex offender it doesn't mean they'll never become one. I work in for a sex offender unit in another state.. lots of times these crimes are commited because the offender gains the trust of the victim and the victim puts themselves in a situation before they even know what is going on. Believe me im not blaming the victim, but we as people and the parents need to teach their kids (no matter what age) not to put themselves in potential bad situations..whether its a teenager at a party or 7 year old playing with their friends in the neighborhood. We need to keep an close eye on them, educate them, teach them how to recognize potential dangerous situations... Also, has much as i hate to say it, you can't trust anyone.
I GET SO TIRED OF HEARING THAT IN REF.. TO THE PARENTS. SOME OF US ARE GOOD PARENTS WHO HAVE TAUGHT OUR CHILDREN GOOD, AND BAD TOUCHES, THE WHOLE THING, AND YES SOMETIMES IT DOES FALL ON THE PARENTS, BUT NOT ALL. I AGREE WITH THE TEENAGE THING, BECAUSE THEY ARE OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW SEXUALLY WHATS GOING ON, BUT WHEN YOU SPEAK OF A SEVEN YEAR OLD, GIVE ME A BREAK, YOU EDUCATE THEM AT THE AGE APP. WAY OF THE FACTS OF LIFE, AND GOOD FROM BAD TOUCH AS WELL, BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE YOU AND THE FAMILY TRUST CAN DO SOMETHING SO BAD TO YOUR CHILD THAT THEY ARE SCEARED, OR ARE TOLD NOT TO, FOR BAD THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM BY THE OFFENDER. YOU REALLY HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE WAY A CHILD THINKS, AND UNDERSTANDS THINGS. BUT THE MAIN THING IS STOP AND THINK IT IS NOT ALWAYS THE PARENTS FAULT, AND IF YOU WORK IN THAT TYPE OF FIELD I AM SURE YOU WOULD KNOW BY THE STORIES YOU HAVE HEARD, AND IT SOUNDS AS IF THE FIELD YOU WORK IN MAY BE FOR THE DEF... AND NOT THE VIC... DUE TO YOUR FEELINGS ON PARENTS, AND THE AGE OF THE CHILD. I CAN NOT SAY I AGREE ON ALOT OF YOUR STATEMENTS, BUT NOT EVERYONE THINKS ALIKE, OR MAY HAVE THE SAME THOUGHTS.

It is obvious the frustration on sex offenders but level one offenders include but are not limited to teenagers who commit sex crimes that are non violent such as underage sex. Posting their names on the internet will destroy their futures and promote crime because they will not be able to get a job. And please next time you post angry comments, learn how to spell

Well, I've read these posts and find everyone, on the whole, a bit selfish and paranoid. I found out the house next door to mine was rented by DOC and was a temporary housing for violent criminals and sex offenders. Yes, I was upset at having no say in the matter. Also, that I (and the offenders) are 2 blocks from a high school. But I did not rant and rave about the injustice and 'fear'. I am a rape victim and have suffered violence in the past, so I suppose that is the response I might have taken, but even with my past, I can't bring myself to judge a man (or woman) on one facet alone. I went over and talked with the individuals, and trusted my own judgements about them. Everyone I've talked with so far seems willing to try take responsibility for their lives and move on. Personally, I feel it is my duty as part of the community to help them realize this goal. By helping them get past their past, I can do something to help them not re-offend. If myself or someone else is later hurt by an individual I tried to help, I will feel guilty. But I would feel more guilt in assuming ex-offenders to be toxic filth and having nothing to do with them, only to have them re-offend anyway because they didn't get the help and support they needed. If you want to feel safe as a community, you have to be part of the community and help EVERYONE in the community, including sex offenders and other people with sordid pasts. Sticking a post-it note on a man or woman's forehead about what they did doesn't help them overcome what they did - it ostrasizes them further from a commnunity that they need help from.

You know not all register sex offenders really did anything thats has to do with sexual related crimes they get this title cause they are arrested for a crime that there anit one yet so instead of charging them with what they did they are charged with this crime so there should be levels cause there anit a law for every single thing and i hope that people understand that so they dont make laws for everything cause then this country would be a cominist country and not a free country!!

The biggest effect with the hysteria about sex offenders is that no-one can go anywhere and get help If you ask for help, before offending, you are treated as if you already offended, you can end up on the Registery. If you are accused by a family member, in a divorce situation, the fee for defense is 50,000 dollars. If you can't pay, you are 60% likely to do 8 years and go on the Registry. So, keep persecuting anyone who may or may not be an offender. It makes it easy to keep the hysteria going. And the hyteria keeps it easier for offenders to offend. Sex offenders have been around for millions of years and in all societies. Get the ones in our society help, before they act out.
Remember, your kids are 90% more likely to be attacked by your relatives then a stranger, or past offender. And your relative can be stalking your kids because he can't get professional help.

For all of you who think that sex offenders no matter what level should have a second chance! You are all totally wacked!! You have no idea what the victim goes through nor do you even care! We might not be able to stop it but the registry makes it possible so that people are aware of who is living next to us! Yes education is helpful but by then it is too late because your child has already been abused!!!! It really irritates me that people want to defend this type of behavior even if it is between a girlfriend/boyfriend or that they only do it once! As far as the boyfriend/girlfriend thing, they know that they can get in to trouble by having sex with someone younger it has been that way for years!!! Do i feel sorry for them NOOOOOOO! Because they knew and didnt care!!! And as far as that one time thing it only takes that one time to destroy another persons life!!!!!!!! Wise up people if it is wrong one way it is wrong the other! You say it gives a false sense of security bull! How many people lie or do not tell anyone about their past especially if they know that people will look down on them??
To the person that helps offenders and wants us to understand you are as sick as they are for defending them and their actions!
SEX OFFENDERS NEED TO BE OFF THE STREET FOR GOOD!!!!!!

I am a former minnesotan currently living in Madison , Wi. This city is FULL of offenders 1,2 and 3. If I am correct, our site here posts all offenders. And pictures, addresses, age what they did and all registry info. Allthough I feel for the teens who were consentually involved, mom and dad got pissed, boy goes to jail for no reason, you get the story. I am still greatful for this site. Regardless of the crime. I wish that all states would follow this site. I currently live in a very nice neighborhood, but there are over a hundred offenders in my zipcode!!! I dont care what they did, as a parent of two young children, I can now know what lurks in my neighborhood. There are women and men both old and young on this registry and with all the kids and schools in the zip, its only a precaution. I live by this very simple rule, if its ok once, its ok all the time, if its not ok once its NEVER ok. To the offenders, its NEVER OK and you have to pay for it forever. To the government and all the liberal pukes who make the rules, let em off nicely, and they will think its ok for life. Im sorry for all this rambling, ive been up for too long. To the offenders who read this, life is all about owning up and taking responsiblity, you made a choice and a consequence will follow you for life, good or bad. DEAL WITH IT and keep your friggn hands to yourself

WHERE DO I START? I AM A SURVIVOR OF RAPE, INCEST, ABUSE OF EVERY KIND. THE PERVERTS WHO RAPE CHILDREN AND OLDER PEOPLE, ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF FILTH THAT EVER WALKED THIS EARTH. ALL OF THESE LOW LIFE VERMON SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOR LIFE OR PUT TO SLEEP LIKE THE DOGS THAT THEY ARE. I AM FROM A CORRECTIONS FAMILY. MY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE CORRECTIONAL OFFCERS. AND THE PERVERTS IN THESE PLACES ARE AS GROSS AS ANY FILTHY ANIMAL CAN BE. LIKE A MAD DOG. IF DNA HAS PROVEN THESE PIGS GUILTY. THEN THEY SHOLUD BE CASTERATED, OR PUT TO DEATH. OR ROT IN PRISON WITH THERE PEERS. AS FOR MISS FORGIVING AND OFFER A HELPING HAND. GOOD FOR YOU. KNOCK YOURSELF OUT. YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM... AND ALL TREE HUGGIN PEOPLE LIKE YOU. PERSONALLY I DOUBT YOUR STORY. IF BY CHANCE IT IS TRUE?I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT YOUR SMOKIN OR DRINKING. OR YOU ARE TOTALLY FLIPPED OUT AND NO ONE IS DOING ANY THING ABOUT IT. AND PLEASE DON'T USE THE GOD CARD ON ME OR ANYONE ELSE. THERES A STORY ABOUT A MILL STONE.AND SOMEONE HARMING CHILDREN. READ IT. ITS IN THE BIBLE. THE PERVERTS SHOULD BE MARKED IF NOT KILLED, OR IMPRISIONED FOR LIFE. A TATOO ACROSS THEIR FORHEAD. BRIGHT RED. FOR THESE ANIMALS ...THEY ARE SO STRONG AND POWERFUL OVER SMALL CHILDREN AND ELDERLY PEOPLE. THEY SHOULD WEAR THEIR BADGE OF HONOR SO EVEYONE KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE. AND IT SHOULD BE OPEN SEASON ON EVERY PERVERT WALKING OUR STREETS. THEY ARE COWARDS . I'VE SEEN THEM FALL TO THE GROUND CRYING BECAUSE SOMEONE CONFRONTED THEM. MIND YOU ...NO ONE TOUCHED THEM YET... BUT THERE THEY LAYED .CRYING LIKE A BABY. AS FOR MY SPELLING? I'M SURE YOU ARE USING THAT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT. WHICH MOST TREE HUGGERS DO WHEN THEY CAN NOT CARRY ON A CONVERSATION.. ANY WAY YES I'M ANGRY AT THE SO CALLED PEOPLE IN SEATS OF GOVERNMENT. THEY DO NOTHING TO DEFEND CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY AGAINST THESE ANIMALS OF DISGUST. THEY GIVE LIP SERVICE AND NOTHING MORE. HOPE ALL OF THEM LOOSE THEIR SEATS...IN THE UP COMMING ELECTIONS.
Let us hope you find a healthy way to deal with your anger.
Hopefully, those in your family working in corrections have the correct training in dealing with all kinds of "perverts and sickos". Once incarcerated, all inmates need helpful rehabilitation so that they will not continue their past behavior. They do not need additonal ignorance that directed agianst them that may have led them to a life of crime in the first place. Nor, do they need additional abuse from the people who are in "control" of their lives while incarcerated. Better that the correctional officer act as a role model of proper conduct, rather than an authority figue using his/her power to harm others.

My 5 year old son was sexually abused by a 15year old boy who was the son of my ex-husbands live in girlfriend (now they are engaged!) This happened multiple times and my son was given gifts including money...he was plea bargained down enough that he will not be listed. The mother (and my ex) believe the 15 year old and have minimized the situation. "no big deal" and "he didn't mean it." This is just setting him up to be able to reoffend...other children need to be protected as well as the 15 year old (from himself!) This world is only getting worse! The victims will never be protected!!

I cannot believe some of the comments I've read on here. Generally, I give the American public the benefit of the doubt. However, this site made me realize how incredibly ignorant and droning some people can be. It's really not that difficult to distinguish the difference between someone who violently raped a child and someone who's getting screwed because they CONSENTUALLY slept with their girlfriend or boyfriend before they turned eighteen. How could you possibly have the audacity to put these people in the same category? If you violently rape anyone, especially a child, you deserve to be brutally tortured and burned alive. I believe that committing an offense of that magnitude should constitute the same punishment as murdering someone. However, if an 18 year old boy has consentual sex with his 16 year old girlfriend, he shouldn't be punished for the rest of his life just because his girlfriends mommy and daddy are controlling facists who don't like him because of his haircut. I remember what it was like to be 16 years old, and I was perfectly capable of deciding whether or not to have sex. By law, you're still a child, but to hell with the law when it comes to making a personal choice that you feel is right. Just because they can't vote, be in the military or buy a pack of cigarettes doesn't mean that they aren't capable of making their own decisions. Teenagers aren't stupid, and should be given atleast some degree of respect and responsibility. All you people have to do is talk to your kids for crying out loud. Take an hour out of your busy day, turn off the widely used universal babysitter known as televesion, and have a conversation with your teenager about the pros and cons of having sex. Don't decide for them. Educate, listen and give them the opportunity to decide for themselves. A 16 year old having sex with an 18 year old isn't the Apocalyse people. Be a parent, keep your kids safe, but for god's sake let them help in the construction of their own life.

I'm not sure if everyone knows, but people convicted of statutory rape are level I sex offenders, and if they didn't know the person was under 18 and it only happened once, why would you ruin their life by posting their name address and everything about them on a website--that would only push them into crime out of desperation of losing their job, home, privacy, etc...
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Jul 27, 2007 03:48 PM
Just so all you uneducated people know, all felony sex offenders have to register, not just level three offenders. other offenders, level one and two, do not have to have thier registration made public. This is only fair, they have served thier time and paid their debt to society. All of your comments here prove that if they were forced to publically announce that they were sex offenders, they would continue to be punished in day to day life by people like all of you who think that just because they were convicted of a sex crime they are horrible monsters who can never change.

As A matter of fact, My neighbors kid almost got hit by the drunk down the street in his car. That guy has got a DUI twice and still drives around. And we should have been notified about that guy when he moved in. My kids should be able to spot a potential drunk driver coming down the street. There is no cure for alcohalism. DUI offenders should have to registar and atleast have a bright colored license plate. We have the right to know!!! Our kids lives are at stake!!! It has worked for sex offenders, why not all the drunks and crackheads as well. We have a right to know!
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Oct 04, 2007 12:05 AM
The average is 17% over 15 years. That means 83% will not reoffend.
So, if the state gives you 50 people to watch out for, giving up to 10% that are innocent according to some studies made by the Innocence Project, that could bring it down to 45 people to watch over. Of those 45 people, you will need to watch, oh heck, lets say 20% to be safe. 20% of 45 is 9.
9 people which the government could easily know if each prison offered sex offender counseling and then followed through with counseling for many years afterward. Then give the public the tools for individual safety and responsibility.

since when do all you freeks think you can judge people you don't even know. i bet none of you has ever watched porn, when you was 18 had sex with a 16 yr old. you all need to clean up around you own back porch before you start worrying what others have done or been accused of for there past. no one is perfect and thats fact. this hole world is screwed up find someone to blam that on while your at it.........
There is no way to keep your children safe unless you yourself keep watch on them for 24, 7. Which in all honesty you can not. It's sadd that this world is coming to the way it is, and yes if your a celb... you do get more then us normal folks do, and it's not fair but it happens, and it shows what the States more interested in (MONEY) then the safety of our children, and getting things done. Always know it's not always the strangers you worry about it's family as well, as hard as it is to understand, but truefull, and honest. Hex

Does anyone else find it incredibly stupid that our sexual conduct laws are strictly age based? Sex is dependent on commitment to be a secure act, commitment is provided only by marriage. Therefore, all we need is a law banning unmarried sex. This Biblical standard is so much simpler than all of our legal idiocy, and so much more logical. Regarding sex offense, is an 18 year old any less traumatized by sexual assault than a 17-year-and-364 day old? Or any less traumatized by an involved but uncommitted sexual relationship that goes sour, for that matter?

I cannot find Level 1 and Level 2 sex offenders on the Minnesota Resgistry, yet I get community notices for criminals being released into my neighborhood! Minnesota DOC has also released homeless sex offenders, and people known to be unstable, and then they wonder why they can't find these perverts and sickos. All I have to say is at least Minnesota is a conceal and carry state..and if one of those perverts comes near my house or my children I will bust a cap in his ***

Registerd Unregisterd.....Realy what differance will it make? The truth is, the danger these people pose is relivent to the amount of education we give our loved ones. The majority of offenders are permited opertunitys to witch they take advantage of. No amount of listing is going to help us, only make us fearful. Will you remember all the names and faces? what real world aplication do these laws have? Safty starts at home. A sexual preditor can strike at any time from any where, and when he or she does, I can almost garentee it wont be a someone listed, but some one close to you or your family with no priors, or convictions. Spend less time and state money on this kinda thing and alocate the funds and time to educating the community, our children, and our selves. Looking at the names and faces of sex offender does nothing for us, but teaching our families how to identifie a threat and being attentive to our childrens public and privet well being not only limits the possibility for attack, but detures those whom may be looking for the oppertunity. People if we work together and put our taxes in to community educaton instead of a freak sho, we stand a far better chance of limiting these crimes.
For some reason, prevention has been thrown out the window. I'm sure we can now pretty much tell signs of offending and do treatment before it gets going or out of hand. Education of your kids is important. However, there are state coffers reaping from this. Millions. The more you punish, the more money you get. Soon even children that messed around with their siblings will be required to register under the Adam Walsh Act. Naw....education and prevention? ...no interest. The DOJ will actually pay a "bonus" (their words) for the number of people you put leg bracelets on.
Gads, criminal justice loves this stuff. Media reinforces the insanity and mothers are running around with their heads cut off. Something is wrong with this society. Kids used to be able to play outside till dark...so what happened?

it's important to note that the majority of sexual offenders will not reoffend after they are caught and treated; and most that have not been caught will offend. The media and tv personalities do a real disservice to the community with the bantering that increases ratings etc...a true lack of integrity. I have been treating and evaluating sexual offenders both in and out of prison for over 8 years now.

Why the heck is a level III sex offender whom raped me not in the registor anymore? How can I go about finding the latest info to make sure I am not in any immediate danger? Since his registration is missing now, what the heck am I to do? How do I renew my restraining order with no known address. God bless anyone who comes in contact with him!
Get a hold of the clerck od courts, your local police dept., your adv... center for sexually abused persons in your state, do what you can so you know why? and the easons behind that. If you had a life long re.... order it still should be in force, but the courts would know all about that. maybe he or she was one whom slipped through the forgotton ones put on the reg... that are supposed to be? but do all that and you should find your way, and hopefully reasons for this mishap.

I THINK EVERY GUY (IT'S MAINLY GUYS) THAT COMMITS A HORRIBLE SEXUAL CRIME AGAINST ANYBODY, ESPECIALLY A CHILD, SHOULD HAVE THEIR DICK CUT OFF AND FORCE FEED IT DOWN THEIR THROAT ON NATIONAL T.V. OR PUBLIC HANGINGS NEED TO COME BACK.. PEOPLE NEED TO BE SCARED FOR THEIR LIVES LITERALLY BEFORE THESE DUMBASSES WILL STOP THE MADNESS... *VIGILANTE JUSTICE*

I don't agree that these people are HONEST! I have two small children who were molested by a family member which has broken my family apart. I believe that they all should be registered!!! Come to find out this person also molested another young family member but the family member took back her word to find some normalcy in her life. She's still hurting 20 years later. It pisses me off that these men and women who mess with little kids can do their time (however short it is) and then can be off scott-free to reoffend! Minnesota laws need to change to prevent these PREDATORS from re offending. I don't believe there is rehabilitation for these people. They'll do it again.
Posted by Reform for juveniles (not registered) on Jan 31, 2008 03:07 AM
Most of these laws are an age old witch hunt. A horrible cocktail of misinformation
and poor out dated research. The simple fact is that juvenile sex offenders do not become adult sex offenders. Most juvenile sex offenders are convicted at the ages between 11 to 14 years of age. most of them do not re offend. I also might like to add that these persons have to register up until there late 30's. you can not assume that these children are harmful to the streets. The basic laws regarding sex offenses do not separate juvenile and adult. There has to be reform in the system for these juvenile sex offenders that does not include damaging there lives as far employment. Because most of these people end up getting reject from jobs and there for anger starts to build. thats a poor idea of criminal reform. it is my judgment to state that for juveniles to register as sex offenders is not only stupid it is sick

This hysteria over sex-offenders is not causing you to be safer. It is however keeping you from seeing many very important issues. As a parent I can tell you this. I don't trust anyone around my kids, not just the people on the list, but also the cops, there has been an escalation of police officers involved in sex crimes and yet how many of you feel that when a cop rolls down your street you feel safe to let your kids play in the street. Don't believe me? Do your research. This is not to say that all police officers are bad, it’s just a point to conceder what we think safe is.
And what about you who are reading this, you ever look at a PlayBoy, PlayGirl or other magazine of that kind, or nudity on the net or a movie? Well I definitely don't want you around my kids, you are truly sick!
Have you ever in your life masturbated, even if you were very young? You are defiantly out too, Sick, Sick, Sick!
Ever pull someone pants down as a prank when you were a kid? No way your coming near my children.
Ever moon your buddies after the high-school foot ball game or have a friend that did? You know already don't you, ya your sick in the head if you did it, but if it was your friend, guilt be association.
Ok did I leave anyone out?
According to studies I have only left out .001% of you sick people. There is a list coming and your name will be on it.

Its time to rethink who we are as a society.
Do you really want t live in fear or just live.
What is the best way to protect your children? Through a list of the maybe .001% of people who (could potentially) harm your kids?
I think this is better. As a ROS, I should know.
1 Know where they are and who they are with AT ALL times.
2 If you can't be with them, ALWAYS make sure that they are not alone, there is safety in numbers and I mean more then TWO!
3 TEACH your children to protect themselves, from sex offenders, drug dealers, murderers and every one else.
4 Take responsibility for the protection of your family. After all, IT IS UP TO YOU. No one else can do it for you. And stop being afraid it only clouds your mind as to the right things to do!
5 Get to know your neighbors ONE on ONE and not from a list. This only breeds distrust and for a false sense of security. Use your natural instincts and always be cautious.
6 Demand reform in government. The registry is as much a danger to you as if there were no registry. The reason is that the great majority of the people on the registry are not a danger and this keeps you from knowing who really is.
For this I applaud Minnesota for taking this bold step to protect its citizens. Yes I said it, to protect you (The Ungrateful), because now as you look at the list you see those that pose (real) threat to you and your family. I don’t feel that a guy peeing on the sidewalk is a danger, no matter how disgusting it may be, he is not a danger, just stupid or drunk. So don’t let him drive! Neither is a kid who moons his buddies as a prank. Just a kid thing! Isn’t that what we thought when we were in school. Remember laughing about it at the movies. What has happened to us?
You know that’s still the way kids think its just a prank. It’s not dangerous! It’s to bad we can’t let them be kids instead of ruining their live to (Protect you).

To all of you who are so upset about only level 3 on the list, you need to think about this; Proposed legislation in some states will make it a crime to breast feed your child if someone accidentally see you doing it, such as in the back seat of your car while your husband drives. Or anywhere you may be when junior gets hungry. Even if you are being careful. Ok what if no one sees and still says they do and you go to court and win your case. It’s over right! WRONG! This is being addressed in at least one state where even accused offenders who were acquitted will end up on a list.
Also if the current laws were in effect 50 or a 100 years ago your grandparents would probably been on the list as marrying young was the norm back then.
New information from the department of justice shows the Recedism of sex offenders is the lowest of all crimes, this information has been kept from the public but if you do your research you can find it. Look up this site http://mow.fd.org/AdamWalshAct/Disc1/index.htm
You may be surprised. Also treatment in many cases cuts recedism by as half.
As for feeling safe, this world isn't safe! Its not just sex offenders, its murders that kill your kids not sex offenders! Its drug dealers that get your kids hooked then take advantage of them! Its gangs that bring morality to an all time low.
But conceder this. Your child has a far greater risk of dieing in a car accident then of being attacked sexually. Then if you add the words by a person on the Registry the numbers skyrocket to a car accident. Your kids have a greater danger of cancer due to smoking then of being attacked by someone on the list. Your kids have a greater risk of becoming an alcoholic then being attacked by a registered sex offender.

My cousin sexually molested me when I was 12 till I graduated high school. I was confused and didn't know what to do. I felt I couldn't tell anyone because they would look at me differently. I am still angry about it and dealing with the repercussions of this. A year ago my brother, 19, was accused of sexual relations with a girl, 16, who decided she wanted to stick her hand down his pants. When he was questioned he told the truth, because that is what we were told was the right thing to do. The cops then decided to talk to her friends in high school and researched into my brother's past relationships. They found one of his girlfriends was 16 when he was 18 and they had sex, no violence involved. The cops immediately arrested my brother and the state took over. The girls' parents did not press charges but the laws in MN are harsh and all hands were tied. He is now a felon with two level 3 sex offences, all because he told some show off cop the truth. He now has to be registered for over 15 years. I can't believe you people think these boys with young girlfriends, who have had role models growing up like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, need to be registered and their lives ruined because some girl decided to have CONSENTUAL sex with her older boyfriend. Most everyone I know who are married would be a sex offender because when they started dating each other one was an “adult” and the other was a “child” in the eyes of the law. I feel that we as a society need to stand up and put the real offenders behind bars, 40 year old men assaulting 12 and 16 year old girls. It all seems like a witch hunt to me. My brother’s case is not the only one around this area, many boys are getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time by cops wanting to make names for themselves and the state wanting to make examples out of these kids. Trust me I am not making excuses for my brother, it takes two he was just stupid enough to get caught.
I do not think all Offenders should have to stay in Prision, because some are in there for agreeing parties, and the parent gets madd, and so fourth. I do however feel that if you hurt someone, by molesting them, rapeing them, etc... they should stay in Prision. Unf.. that does not happen, and when they re-enter society, we will all have that worry that it may happen again. My son's Preditor will be out in 2014, and I still feel he will moleste again, Esp.. with him still violateing his no contact through the mail, with my son, and I even reported it to the State, and the Law, and I got he is in Prision what more do you want? I want my son;s Life Long res... Order to be just that, and Press charges again, since he is violateing them even in Prision. And Nothing happens. But my point is not all Offenders are that, and I nenver would have known that until I lived through the Court systems for almost two years. So you can not always judge a book by it's cover, and you can not always Trust Family... Tammy (HexGirl)

I have read every one of these posts. For the people who think MN is easy on rapists and sex abusers - you're right. I can't believe no one mentioned the state trooper who pled guilty to 1st degree sexual assault
of his 14 yr old niece. He will serve a few months in the workhouse. We had a situation where a girl was date raped. She was ashamed to tell her
parents. She met a new guy and still felt bad about it so she told him.
He told her to report it. He believed rape was rape and the police should
do something about it. She tried to report it to 2 police depts. They both
told her to go get some counseling that she was just "used". The college
kid did what some of you have suggested. He went out to "talk" to the kid
because he had been bragging about it trying to ruin her reputation. The college kid took two other kids with as witnesses. One of them brought a
gun he had taken from the college guys house. Needless to say, he fired
it at the alleged rapist car. The three kids were arrested. The one who shot the gun left the country. The college kid is charged with drive by shooting, a felony charge for ten years, a year in the workhouse, 5 years probation and loses his car to the state. Go figure. The girl tries to once again press charges, the police ask the kid if he raped her,he says no and
they don't file the report. While the girl is trying to press charges the
alleged rapist starts to harass her at work and writes a death threat on her car. She reports it and her family tries to get a restraining order to keep him away from her. No go. They say she will have to wait until he tries to
physically assault her before they can do that. So now she is emotionally
and psychologically scarred from the rape, she is taking the blame for the college kid whose life is ruined and no one cares. Two other things that
really showed how bad MN is... The prosecutor was actually going to put her on the stand to testify against the college kid while facing the rapist with him playing the victim. The college guys parole officer kept asking him and his family why they weren't blaming the girl for him getting in trouble. Like she needed more guilt. MN doesn't have a justice system that I can see. What is considered a chargeable offense is whatever will
make some money for someone or enhance the prosecutors career.

Minnesota will soon be known as the land of 10,000 felons. It's really
only the felony convictions they are after. The prison and jail system
is like a cottage industry to the state of MN. It helps the economy within
the state. On the previous comment...no one was hurt in the incident and
the college kid took full responsibility for the incident and pled guilty
even though he didn't know the gun was in the car until it was too late.
He wanted to spare the rape victim any more emotional harm at the hands
of the court or prosecutor. They are not known to be delicate even with the
victims of rape.
Posted by cm (not registered) on Feb 08, 2008 07:01 AM
Minnesota - Land of 10,000 Felons. Felony convictions are up big time.
Not more crime just stricter penalties. From a 2004 article - Sheriff
Don Gudmondson of Dakota County - "Crime rates have been decreasing over the last five years, but the prison population continues to grow. The average prison term in Minnesota in 2001 was 33.9 months. It's now 45.75 months, the number of adults on probation in Minnesota dropped by more than 12,000 in 2003--roughly 10 percent, the same percentage increase in the number of prisoners with a sentence of one year or more. In other words, the trend in Minnesota is to incarcerate even the small-time offenders.
"We don't put enough people in custody in the first place," he argues.
"They become repeat offenders. We put too many people on probation. Let's hit 'em harder up front and not have to worry about them time and time again. I think you ought to fine 'em, jail 'em, and forget about 'em."
There's reason to think that Gudmundson's brand of justice has traction, at least in his neck of the woods. His department recently received $10 million in state and county money to expand its jail system and accommodate the growing population. Construction should begin next year. This is what I was talking about. A nice little cottage industry to
help the economy at the expense of it's tax paying citizens.

i just learned that the state nursing home that was also used to house sexual predators is closing its doors for good....those last few that have not been sent to other facilites are going from a locked down floor to a "group home" setting about 100 yards from my home where i live alone with my 8 and 6 year old. i find it amazing that the system that found these guys bad enough to keep locked up now feel that they are ok to be in a residential setting.... a neighbor of mine whose husband is on the local police force and herself a former dept of corrections worker is also appalled. one of these guys was lowerd from a level 3 offender to a level 2! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING! ONCE A SEXUAL SCUMBAG DEVIANT ALWAYS A SCUMBAG DEVIANT! I am so upset that my small country home sanctuary is now a place i fear to be alone. I along with most people i think belive that if you were that dangerous to society you always will be. THE MOVE IS TO HAPPEN IN MARCH....ALL OF THE NEIGBORS ARE HAVING A MEETING AT THE FIRE HALL IN OUR TOWN ON THURSDAY FEB 21, 2008 IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS NEAR TO WALKER MN PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHOW UP AT 7 PM. I KNOW THAT LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IS ALSO AGAINST THE NEW GROUP HOME SETTING....THESE GUYS ARE DANGEROUS AND SHOULD BE AT ST PETER OR MOOSE LAKE FACILITES. PLEASE HELP US AVERT THIS MOVE INTO OUR COMMUNITY!

As I said, MN doesn't take sex crimes or offenses seriously. After Rodriguez and Blom, you would think they would be a bit more cautious.
Prosecuting sex offenders doesn't make any money for them. Are they
trying to keep them in the proverbial loop for more funding for the prison
corporation they have going?
I am appalled that the "normal" people of MN are so blind to all of this.
They don't even take notice whats going on until it touches their lives in
some way and even then they just try to cover it up unless someone else
If you really want a shocker, just look at the case histories in Stearn
County for a few months. Criminal sexual conduct cases with jail and prison sentences stayed are the norm. These guys are back out on the
street after court. Or a short 6 month stay in the county jail and they are
out to offend again. Sometimes they get a few months of sexual offender
treatment and then are released. And you wonder why this is a problem?
Until they take these cases seriously and stop prosecuting the cases where the people are not dangerous to anybody, MN will be a haven for
sex offenders. Sexual offenders, domestic abusers and date rapists are
having a field day in MN. Only 25% of the cases are even reported mainly
because no one takes them serious when they do report. Sad, Sad.

Don't you realize that just posting here is not doing anything but talking
about a problem we are all aware of. Write an email or letter to your
local legislator and copy it to the state senator and congressman.
Especially Amy Klobucher who is responsible for a lot of the mess in
Hennepin County. YOU put them in office and can either keep them there
or throw them out at the next election. They will listen to people who will
vote for them. There should be an outcry about all the injustices happening, a lot of them because of the sentencing guidelines that they
You wonder why people who should be on are not, and why people who
shouldn't be are??? It's all about the money people. They don't have
to be accurate or discriminate between child predators and wrongly convicted. They just have to show the numbers that they are complying.
It's not about keeping us safe, it's about getting money for their pet programs.
How this bill will be paid for: The cost would be shared by the Federal Government and the states. The Federal Government would bear the cost of maintaining the national sex offender registry, and the states would bear the cost of supervising high risk offenders upon their release from prison.
To ensure compliance with the bill, the legislation would reduce federal funding for prison construction by 25 percent for those states that did not comply, and would reallocate such funds to states that did comply.
In the past, this funding has been used to help sustain various programs, including community policing and school liaison officers;Drug Abuse
Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.); zero-tolerance drug offender testing; and criminal justice record improvement. ByrneGrant money also contributed to funding personnel and vehicles formulion of jurisdictional drug teams, a money laundering investigative team, the Statewide Information System (STATIS), and Training and Coordinating Effort(TRACE) for narcotics investigation training. In addition, Byrne Grant funding was awarded to county prosecutors for training, equipment, and personnel costs.
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WRIGHTING, AND COMPLAINING FOR YEARS, IT DOES NOTHING. THIS SIGHT IS FOR PEOPLE TOO SHARE EXP... OR MAKE OTHERS AWARE OF THINGS THAT HAPPEN, OR JUST ASK QUESTIONS. THESE PEOPLE YOU VOTE FOR WILL DO, AND SAY ANYTHING TO GAIN A VOTE, SWARE THINGS WILL CHANGE FOR THE BETTER OF AMERICANS, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. UNF.. THINGS WILL NOT GET BETTER UNTIL THE GOVERMENT, PRESIDENT, THE HIGHER UPS, START DOING THEIR JOBS RIGHT, AND STOP WITH THE OFFENDERS WHOM ARE NOT, BECAUSE A PARENT GETS MADD, AND START LOOKING MORE TOWARDS THE ONES WHOM ARE.

I find this to be very disturbing that they don't post any other level of sex offender. I myself was engaged to one....until I found out that he was an offender...thats only because I intercepted a phone call in reguards to him failing to register. This is so scary and very serious. I had my niece visit me for a month, who is only 3 years old. I found out after she had left, that this man was a sex offender....who knows what he did to her, she had to go into the doctor to have testing done. I think that if you are able to find out if someone has a DUI, you should be able to see that someone is a sex offender...I would rather marry someone that was drivng impaired and cited for that rather than someone that has to register for life for a sex crime....its so ridiculous that this information is not at the hands of the public.
You have to look at this site - The Adam Walsh Act is being reviewed
in most states to expand the registry sites - Federal funding is involved -
but this will make it worse than it is now. Check it out

To the one who is the ex offender... Give me a break you committed a crime. I would have to agree that no matter one level you are I think you should have to register. I am sorry yes education is a great thing to those who have committed such a crime. But seriously do you need to rape once before you realize you need help? I think a sex offender may have many issues that go back to child hood but seriously if you know you had a rough child hood and you know you are not right in the head then seek help on your own why use an innocent life to realize you have a problem? My main point I guess is if you commit the crime you should have to pay and a must should be having to register no matter what level......

The text messages from her ex-boyfriend said he wanted to have sex. Not only with her, but also with the 2-year-old twins she was baby-sitting, Ms.Peterson said.
Alarmed, she called Anoka police. She was hoping they would talk to him. Scare him away.
An officer never came to the house.
Now the ex-boyfriend sits in the Anoka County Jail, charged with sexually assaulting one of the 2-year-olds hours later. And Peterson is angry, saying officials might have been able to prevent it.
This was just in the St. Paul paper. As I said the police in Minnesota think that rape/sexual abuse is all a ruse. They don't even want to bother to fill out the paperwork, much less check out a situation that might have averted an assault. One more for the books.

People, the paranoia must stop. If you did something stupid on a Friday night when you were 28, like urinated on a tree in a park or flashed someone as a gag on haloween, guess what you are a "sex offender". There are many people living with the stigma of being a sex offender because 15 years ago there was a he said she said situation of "rape or sexual harrasment". Before you stigmatize a real sex offender, you have to be sure of what you are doing, and whether it's even appropriate to label someone as such. Do your research people. The extremely punitive nature of the U.S. justice system has done more harm then good with research to back it up. Not everyone is a real "sex predator" waiting to strike and they shouldn't be labeled as such to satisfy people's need for vengence and complete paranoia in this country. I'm a father of a 5 year old daughter, but I'm not ignorant enough to want to lock up and register everyone who did what a lot of people end up doing when they are young... a stupid mistake. There are people who SHOULD be locked up and MONITORED for the rest of their life, but in reality that percentage is quite small.
We are too easy on any felon. I worked at www.theworkconnection.com employment agency and they are a felon friendly company for non-violent felon crimes. But I still had to accept applications from anyone. There was a person that has 11 felony convictions from 2001 - 2006, a coworker was arrested and plead guilty of I think, 2nd degree CSC, but he did not go to jail, but instead at a place where he could still go to work weekdays, and back to that place nights and weekends. I do not know if he was guilty, but if if the 11 felon person and my coworker was guilty, then they should spend time in prison, especially the person that now has 11 felony convictions. He should have spent years in jail well before the 11th conviction. WE are too easy on other crimes including DWI. If anyone drinks and drives then they have proved that they hate people and do not care about people cause they drank and drove. I argued with another co-worker who had a DWI in 2006. She said that she loves people and it was just a mistake. DWI is not a mistake, you go to a bar, and drink, then drive, what the heck is a mistake about that? You purposely did those things, no one forced you to drink and drive. Why not just go to a bar and drink OJ or pop? Cant these loosers enjoy themselves without drinking? Answer is no, because they are loosers.

While in jail he shared a cell with a young man who was convicted of statutory rape with his girlfriend who was two years younger and a minor. I believe she was 16. This young man is also a register sex offender and felon, for life. Another man he met during sex offender treatment, (where he did have to sit with predatory rapists, and child molesters) also convicted of a sex crime, and is a life registered sex offender, commited the crime of mooning someone on his boat, and then turning to give a front view. Another man who my father went to high school with is an extreme alcoholic and after being divorced from his wife and single for a few years (this man is very unattractive) made a immoral and unwise decision of paying a prostitute for a blow job. It turned out to be a police sting. He was arrested and he is now a felon and a lifetime registering sex offender. We have to move from town to town sometimes, and my husband has been fired, dissmissed, or "laid off" repeatedly because people look him up online, and they immediatly think.... CHILD MOLESTER! And this is only, after he can actually struggles for months sometimes to find someone who will actually hire him after a background check. Our life is sooooo limited, because of the scarlet letter put on him. He will never be a succesful individual.

Most of the time in MN the serious offenders get off too easy and the miniscule crimes get the max. They could care less about the sex offenders and just try to get the case out of the way with the least fanfare as possible. There have been so many cases where a minor drug offense gets way more time than a rape.

I believe that all sex offenders should be listed whether level 1,2, or 3. We need to be educated and know who to look for. Sad, but true, no one is safe anymore....even in our own homes. Makes Me Sick!!! I will educate my children and continue and hope that they have a chance.... when does it stop.
It shows how easily you are duped (IMO). This problem was much worse in the past. In any case, it is actually better today with more treatment. The media has made you fearful and you had better get a grip. Seeing a photo of your neighbor on line, tells you nothing about his propencity to reoffend. While you are downgrading him/her, (giving a superior feeling of oneself) the offender in your own family is closer than you realize. For, data suggests the offender is one that you know well or is in your own family. so it goes. Police should have a complete list of offenders for investigation purposes (IMHO), but the public would sleep better if they could leave this problem to the officials.

I just have to say that not all sex offenders are preditors and should be on the internet. Most level 1's never commit a crime or go up in level. In az you could become a sex offender by being 20 going out with a 17yr old. peeing in public not wanting someone to see you but getting cought. If you look on tv today you will see so many people that can be convicted of a sex charge in movies and sitcoms ect.. it is sickenining. I realy wanted to talk about the sex offneders counseling. I tried to bring it to the news stations attention. It does not realy work. I was convicted of being 20 and parents didnt like me girl was 17. Im married with kids now it been years. But the counselor said he does not even know if counseling works!!! All sex offenders no matter what happened have to go to the counseling. All they do is sit around and tell stories about what they did and why they think they did it in detail and graphic words. If I would have gone through that I would have a misdemenor but I could not. I would go home everyday crying sobbing to my wife over the things the others said. While im sure the others were just soaking it up and enjoying. Pack of pedaphilies. I just think they should seperate the rapist kiddie porners and chester the melestors all together cause they are sick and need Jesus in a major way. I don't think everyone should be lumped together. I was never in trouble a day in my life and was scared to death of going to prision but I could not sit there and listen to the sickness that those people have. I think the counseling is nothing but a club of those guy's ehasshing there stories and than being let out and unleashed on the public. Not all S.O. are the same they need to sperate better I think. I think they need to do a serious investigation of the counseling. I break down and cry everytime I have to register and go into the jail to get my picture taken. How many of you were just over 18 and were with someone younger. How many tv shows are like that. High school girl dating college boy.

I found sex offenders that are not level 3 on this site: http://www.nsopr.gov/
Thanks to this site I found out a sex offender lives 4 houses up from me. The only problem is that it does not tell you what the crimes were. Here is a little information regarding guidelines for registering as a sex offender in Minnesota.
Offenders Who Commit Offenses in Minnesota. An adult who is charged with and convicted of, or a juvenile who is petitioned for and adjudicated delinquent for, one of the following offenses or another offense arising out of the same set of circumstances, must register under the law:
• murder while committing or attempting to commit criminal sexual conduct in the first or second degree with force or violence;
• criminal sexual conduct in the first, second, third, and fourth degree and felony criminal sexual conduct in the fifth degree;
• felony indecent exposure;
• false imprisonment of a minor;
• soliciting a minor to engage in prostitution;
• soliciting a minor to engage in sexual conduct;
• using a minor in a sexual performance; or
• possessing pictorial representations of minors.
An adult also must register under the law if convicted of a predatory crime under section 609.1082 if the offender was sentenced as a patterned predatory offender or the court found that the crime was part of a predatory pattern of behavior that had criminal sexual conduct as its goal.

HEAR IS MY DEAL.... WHAT ABOUT THE "OFFENDER" WHO DIDN'T DO ANY THING. MY BROTHER AT THE AGE OF 17 WAS IN A YEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND. THE MOM AND DAD OF THE GIRL KNEW, I MEAN KNEW OF THIS RELATIONSHIP. THEY TOOK MY BRO ON VACATIONS AND HAD HIM OVER FOR HOLIDAYS... THEN MY BRO WAS AN IDIOT AND GOT IN SOME TROUBLE WITH THE LAW. THE PARENTS THEN WANTED THE GIRL TO END IT. AND DURING THAT TIME THEY SEARCHED HER ROOM. SHE HAD PICTURES THEY TOOK DURING SEX. (SHE HAD THEM!!!!! NOT HIM!!!!) HE WAS CHARGED WITH SEXUAL MISCONDUCT AND IS NOW A SEX OFFENDER. HE HAS BEEN A NON-LEVEL... YEAH CAUSE HE WAS A JUVINILE HE WAS CONSIDERED NON-THREAT. BUT HE HAS TO REGISTER EVERYWHERE HE GOES... SOME OF YOU PRICKS HAVE NO IDEA. YOU WANT TO THROW STONES AT MY BROTHER AND SAY HE SHOULD DIE AND BE THROWN IN JAIL FOR LIFE... BS HE HAS TO KIDS AND A WIFE AND HE IS TRYIN TO MANAGE THIS BULL CRAP LAW... SOME PEOPLE ARE BAD AND SHOULD PAY...
BUT PEOPLE LIKE MY BRO WHO GET A RAW DEAL, WELL THIS IS DUMB.....
i like how all the 'hardcore' hateful people who hate all sex offenders dont use a name. funny. they arent doing anything but helping create fear umong us as humans. fear is a powerful tool the government uses to keep us in control. arent you afraid of terrorists now? are you afraid to use a bank to keep a million dollars in? i am. but to be fearful of a sex offender who made a mistake, that makes me weak. i am not weak. i will protect my kids. i am open to anything they want to talk about. all parents should be. this will keep them safer then worrying about what chester down the street is doing. know where your kids are, who they are with, what they are doing, and when they will be home. cell phones come in handy for this. watch your kid closer, and be more involved then you wont have to come onto a site like this and spread your hate-fear mongering bull. please dont get me wrong, im a sex offender also, but a child molester? no. i am not. nor would i ever consider it. i had sex with a 15 year old young lady. she knew what she was doing. as did i when i was her age. i did my time for my crime, so all who are here hateing, your doing nothing but hurting. giving the government more fuel for the fire. how will america be when there are 5 million sex offenders here? non- sex offenders will be the minority. this isnt far fetched. look at the numbers now, and they grow everyday! so fear you fools...
find something better to worry about, like what really happened on 9/11. everyone seen the grey play that was clearly not a passenger plane, but i bet none of you clowns has said anything about it! want to speak fear, speak that. how about our money system. the government is bailing out millionaires who ran the financial system to ruins. we are all suffering now. so lets bail out the rich guys who created the mess in the first place. so there you have something else to dwell upon.
i meesed my life up. i had sex with her. i went to jail. i did my community control. i did my sex offender classes for three years. i was in there with child molesters and rapists. i didnt fit in. i cant find a job. im about to be homeless. so is this going to make america safer? more sex offenders on the streets? at least if i had a job and could afford to live somewhere, you all would know where im at. if im homeless, hey, wheres that durty sex offender now? i can register my address to a street corner. but will i always be on that street corner? no. where will i be then? by the school to see my kids? maybe. maybe even in your alley. go ahead and hate me. it doesnt matter. i love you all the same. even if your ignorance level is unbecoming. you are all human as i am. youcut, you bleed, same as me. so hate me!!!!

my husband is a level 1 sex offender from 1992 and in his situation he was cuaght with clothes on humping a girl that said he made me do. this is something that happen almost 20 years ago and now he is sitting in jail for not registering as a sex offender you would think that a juve case would be closed . so no i dont feel like level 1 should get the same treatment as a level 2 and 3. from what i read he has to register as a sex offender for 20 years. would you like to have to register for something that happen so many years ago and the first thing that ppl think is that you raped someone or touched a child and it not even like that
Minn. anon Feb 22: Google the Adam Walsh Act. I believe a juvenile case is treated different, as to the length of registration. I think...think..it is ten years and then he can appeal if he has had good behavior and has not reoffended.
'(B) a tier III sex offender adjudicated delinquent, the reduction is from life to that
period for which the clean record under paragraph (2) is maintained.
(A) a tier I sex offender, the period during which the clean record shall be
maintained is 10 years; '

The Problem alot of people do not realize is that 90 some percent of Sex Offenders are people you know. Friends, Family.. Rarely do sex offenders offend on a stranger. Letting the public know of everyone can cause to more isolation for the offender, He/She will feel more vulnerable and more shamed. This will lead them to seak out people who they can be social with.. you guessed it..Children. Most sex offenses occur because mentally they feel like they can only connect with children.. "Children are the only ones that understand me." So by letting everyone know who they are, you are potentially putting more children in harms way.

How do you keep someone in jail if you know damn well they will commit another cruel act on a child, even if they are registered? They can just hop across a state line and go back to their routine of insanity. I know this because my family fell victim to a slim ball. He tore away the innocence of my fifteen year old cousin, ripped apart our family in so many ways imaginable and only got 5 years in prison. In the state of WI, his history with minors runs as far back as age 9 when he was caught with one of his foster sisters. The list goes on and on. It just so happens, the girls who tried to file charges, no one believed them, not even their parents, and he was aquitted of all charges. He manipulates, controls, and lives his life like there is nothing to loose. He doesn't deserve to be in the public. He deserves to rot in jail, or better yet, rot in a grave. And for those who have commented on those of us living in fear, you need to experience it first hand before you say something like that. It starts out with these simple uncontrollable urges for power and sex, and what does it lead to? In all positivity, we hope the help the state gives out would stick and they'd be rehabilitated, like some souls have managed to accomplish, but for some. They turn into something darker and more dangerous and know one seems to see it until it's too late. I know there's know way of determining who will recommit and who will not, but I know deep down that this bastard will, some way some how. It's in his blood. What's next, murder, kidnapping, torture, the list can go on and on in the world we've come to know today. Those pyschos are out there, and if it means trying to protect your children from them and having some kind of fear, more power to you. The world isn't as safe as we thought it once was. For those who live in MN or WI, T.W. is serving time in Stillwater Prison for rape. He will be out within the next couple years, because if you are GOOD, they let you go, just like that. I'll keep paying taxes no matter how high they get, to keep him and others like him in jail.
tornfamily: I suggest you read the Adam Walsh Act. Offenders who are required to register cannot just jump state lines. They would be required to register in the next state under this law, I think. There are also programs in effect in many states , I think, that will not release the offender when his "time" is up, if he/she is still considered dangerous.

My grandfather sexualy assulted me and my sister when I was 6 and it lasted a few years and he got four years but every wednesday and sunday he got out to go to church what does that say to every one who goes throught this horrible thing they feel that the people who did this can just do it because they will just get a slap on the hand how is that right if that is the case you might as well tell everyone just to keep there mouth shut or the person will get out and do it to them again if the kid or adult servied in the first place.

Wow! most of you are not even talking about the facts, the fact is most offenders are people you already know(baby sitter, friend, uncle, aunt, grandparent!) 90% of all victims are offended by someone they know! Also you all sound like you let the media make up your minds for you, get informed!! Less than 1% of cases end in murder. Most of our sex offenders in the state of MN are NOT level 3 all sex offenders do have to register. Get informed before you speak!
Posted by Josh (not registered) on Jul 17, 2009 05:11 PM
The REASON they do this is because not all sex offenders are on the list for raping someone. You can be put on the list for something as stupid as a cop seeing you pee on a back county road.

I cant believe all you talk about is the Men offenders. Why not take a look at the growing number of FEMALE offenders. I lived in WA and when Mary Kay Laturneau offended, they all supported her and said she loved her victim. The women offenders are usually in a position of authority and have easy access. They feel what boy wouldnt want to sleep with me. You all need to either see women as offenders and drop this double standard or live in your dream world of only men hurt and abuse their victims and women love their victims. I know of an ex teacher that I was in prison with that his victim went to court at 18, was able to see him and they got married after he got out. He was seen as a predatory offender. Another thing, the basic difference between a level 1 and level 2 is that a level 1 was with a family member and the a level 2 was a known victim. I would think a family member having time to groom the victim and use his position would be worse. I am a level 2 because I had consentual sex with a teenage girl that LIED about her age. I was 20 she was really 14 but told me she was 18. I lost my military career due to my bad decision. Parents need to monitor what their kids are doing and be parents instead of trying to be their kids friends and trying to be like teens again. The internet has given the teens more of a chance to lie and set up fake myspace, facebook, and fubar accounts. I admit I made a bad decision, I went to prison, received treatment that i successfully completed. Im now 38, married, and offense free. You people need to get your heads out of where they are and see that sex offenders are all around. You are probably friends with one and dont even know it. We are human as well and we make mistakes. Helping us will help prevent repeat offenses. Shutting us out will cause us to get the I dont care attitude and do what we can to go back.

OK SO I HAVE READ MOST OF EVERYONES POSTS AND THEY ARE BASICALLY SAYING THE SAME MESSAGE BUT BUT BUT THERE IS A HUGE HOLE IN WHAT YOU ARE ALL SAYING. YOU ARE SAYING ALL SEX OFFENDERS SHOULD BE REGISTERED NO MATTER WHAT. BUT YOU MOSTLY ARE TALKING ABOUT OFFENDERS THAT ATTACK CHILDREN, WHAT ABOUT THE ONES THAT ATTACKED WOMEN AND IT WAS THERE FIRST OFFENSE DON'T THEY DESERVE TO NOT HAVE THEIR NAMES OUT THERE HUNG TO DRY. I AM ALL FOR HANGING ANYONE WHO OFFENDS A MINOR BUT LIKE ONE POSTER SAID SOME WOMEN CRY WOLF FOR REVENGE NOW ALL WOMEN ARE TRUTHFUL AND INOCENT.

If this information is supposed to be free to citizens in order to keep their children safe then why do I have to pay $1.00 (give an anonymous source my credit card number?). This is a travesty of my rights as a citizen of Minnesota. Shame on you!!! Protecting the rights of pedophiles. You must be a politician!!!

First off G Arvid. Where does it state in the states constition thats its your constitional right to know where sex offenders are or any criminal for that matter. So no your constitional rights are not being violated because you have none. Read the states constitution.

Why do any level sex offenders get out of jail? just so they can rape again, you know they will do it again.
If they are a risk at all why even let them out of prison. I have a level 3 offender moving into my little town soon as if I dont have enough to worry about with my children and now this.

Why do they have levels? Because you can't say a man who cuts someone is a murderer!!! You can lable all these people as evil rapists, some of these offenders are just kids who maybe have been raped as children and thought it was right, some kids were caught in a bad position and made a bad choice, same goes for some adults, my son is 14 and got caught in a bad place and he touched a 17 year old girl on the outside of her clothes over her crotch and now is labled as a predator for the rest of his life because of that but does that mean he should spend life in prison or be labled as a murderer?!?! NO!!! He has his whole life left and it's in the ditch!!! He's a wonderful boy, always happy and polite and gets A's in school, I'll have my childs side as long as I live and I'll defend him with my life and it tears my heart to pieces when I read how some people think my child should be charged as a murderer for the rest of his life.

So I run a sober house and was looking up names on Minnesota judicial branch web site and came across the name of a person living at the sober house it said 1st degree sexual crime dismissed and second degree convicted, it is a strick policy here at our sober house which I enforce no sex offenders, now I am reading that peeing in public is also a sex offense so with all that said how do I find out what he did and if I kick him out just for peeing in public when he was drunk I personally wouldnt care, ya gotta go ya gotta go I guess and that charge he recieved in 1998 but I still want to know, because I am totally against having an sex offender using a sober house a safe haven that is not what we are here for.

I am reading this site and I am very disappointed in what you people are saying. Have anyone thought about what this stupid registry actually does? Who does it actually protect? What about the ones who actually are innocent and got set up by someone up out of hatred as all you people are doing on here. Majority of the time the ones who do not reoffend as you call it were the ones who might have never done it from the gitgo.Especially when there was no DNA, photos and nothing but lies for example someone who doesn't speak a lick of english. How closed-minded can a human being be? How can a so called justice system be so proud of there stupid registry? When they have major flaws.

The ONLY way to keep your children 100% safe is to lock them in a room with you!! They are not 100% safe with your spouse,or a relative or with a teacher or with a cop or with a church leader. The person that is most likely to do something sexual with your child is one of these peaople. In 9 out of 10 cases it is NOT the person released from prison last year, it is the person that YOU know and trust and have invited into your circle and made your children feel safe with. Educate yourselves...it's NOT the people who are in the spotlight that are the greatest risk to your children....it is the people you would never believe capable of doing something like that.

The problem is nobody takes the time to weed out the BS cases from the true sex offenders. I'm sure if someone with a brain was in charge of the task, we would have a more comprehensive data base of true sex offenders. Bureaucracy is lazy folks and always has been. It's redundant, full of red tape and pork! The real tragedy is that some of these scumbags slip through and go on to hurt even more people. If you've ever known or loved a woman that has been raped you'll see how it affects them forever in ways you'd never guess. It takes something away from them they'll never get back with any time, healing or counseling. Society has become way to lenient in regurds to these crimes. Put me in charge of the punishment. I'll make my pact with the Devil.

I was convicted as a 12 year old for pulling out my penis, they gave me 10 years of paper when the 10 years was up I stop registering then come too find if your ever locked up they add 10 years from the date your released. I got arrested for argueing with my father 9 months before my 10 years was up... so they sent me too adult prison for 14 months because I was never informed about the law. Now I have too register as an adult offender for 13 more years. Im 28 now and its ruining my life. Any man that says they never pulled there penis out on a girl when they were 10 to 12 years old is a liar and for me too still be going through this as a 28 year old adult is rediculous... and by the way im a no level sex offender and I register so yes every level has too register. The levels are:0 (me)least likly too reoffend 1 less likly too reoffend 2 more likly too reoffend 3 most likly too reoffend.

The only cure for a sexual predator/offender is death..I don't care who you are. When this country starts protecting it's children at all cost or perhaps a vigilante group intercedes and picks up where the criminal justice system leaves off , it will be then that our children can be safe again.
Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on May 03, 2010 01:49 PM
WOW. This is crazy! I have to say there is no proof that registering has ever prevented a crime! Also, the ones that are registering are not near as much as a threat as the one who has never been caught and continues to get away with it. I have been sexually offended and I have also known people wrongly accused of sexually offending. I am a drug and alcohol counselor and believe in the power of God, change and healing. Some of you sound like the people in the bible trying to stone the adulterous woman. Those who have never sinned may throw the first stone. My biggest step in healing from my abuse was releasing my anger and pain and trusting that God knows how to love and how to be just and he will do with me and all others as needed. How about watch your own kids and take it upon yourself to protect them instead of some legal piece of paper that deems someone safe or not! Neither of my abusers were registered! Do you think it would have stopped them. I know the damage it does to a person's life to be labeled as something they aren't! You can not lump people together - are you telling me that a 20 year old guy who sleeps with his girlfriend deserves the same label and actions as a 60 year old who repeatedly raped a child? NO! And as for peeing on the side walk... you say you don't want your children associating with those people- so don't let them. If your around your children you know who they are with. STOP RELYING ON SOCIETY TO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN! That's your job - like it or not. False sense of security is all you get. So bring over a neighbor and let them babysit because they aren't registered? NO! You don't need a register you need common sense and everyone needs to stop condemning people. I have worked with "sexual offenders", prostitutes, addicts and murderers. Most have a wonderful heart and amazing story - but some of you think they deserve NO opportunity to make it right and move forward! We live in an evil world. Take responsibility for yourself and your children and you won't have to worry so much about what everyone else is doing!

But he gets to go on living his life with his big secret, whereas my sister lives her life thinking about this daily. But, lets worry about his life huh... why do offenders have more rights then victims nowdays?

It would be interesting to know where most of the people who have made these comments got their information on sex offenders. Have any of you done your own research? If you look into true statistics 90% of sex offenders re-offend. And many of you assume that their offenses are with children. That is not correct information. This is a real issue for all communities. But the fact is offenders do live around us. And they are going to live around us. So why is no one looking into how we need to fix this broken system?

Why in MN does someone have to register as a sex offender even when the sex offense was dropped in court and a person was convicted of a GM non sex offence? Isn't that a violation of Innocent until proven guilty?

Ya know, to those of you who say we need to watch our own kids, I agree. I watch mine very carefully. The furthest they are allowed to go away from the house is the end of the block and back, and that's still only if I am watching them. But why the hell should we have to deny our children a little freedom to play just so these sick perverts can have their freedom? Anyone involved sexually with a minor, even once, should have to register. And don't give me that crap that a lot of them don't re-offend because they do. I am done keeping my children, who are old enough to be playing in the neighborhood without a leash, locked up all the time! Although they will both now have GPS on them, I am also taking them to every address of the registered sex offenders and showing them their picture so they know what kind of sick people are out there and who to stay away from. And I have seen the kind of damage that sexual assault and child molestation does to a person for the rest of their life so no, these people shouldn't have a second chance. They messed up a child forever, they should be put to death or locked up for good at the very least! And it should be our right to know what perverts are in our community and what they look like because us as parents are trying to protect our future as they will be taking over when we get old so to hell with you perverts and any one of you who say otherwise!

To know that there is a sex offender living 10 blocks from me and my children really upsets me because they are not a level 3 it does not show up on here, I am glad for the application I have on my phone showing even level 1 offenders so I know I can keep my babies safer.
Posted by Mike (not registered) on Jun 01, 2011 01:08 PM
A lot of you are very naive. Just because there isn't an offender in your neighborhood doesn't mean you or your kids are 100% safe... These offenders weren't born a level 3. You should be watching your kids and aware of what they're doing regardless if there is a sex offender living near you or not.
