Why are my family Members not registered in Bradford County. For Sexual abuse done to me back in 1989? Is it due to laws changed simce then or b/c it has been so long ago?

Posted by new in town (not registered) on Aug 29, 2006 05:37 PM

I don't see why the law should protect the addresses of SO (Sex offenders) and display only the VSO (Violent Sex Offenders). This isn't right. That means you're proctecting them but not us and our families.

In NJ where I come from, I new exactly where and when the all SO moved in to my area or even close by.

I do hope this law change some time soon!!!!

what are the restrictions outside of registration for sex offenders?

Posted by Anonymous (not registered) on Oct 20, 2006 10:42 AM

There are no state restrictions on the offenders. Some towns and cities have been creating ordinances restricting the offenders from living near school, daycares etc. But unforrtunately there are no state laws, yet.

Why isnt the man who raped me on this list. It happened 3 years ago and he has been charged with 2 counts of 2nd degree rape. He has done it to many girls but i am the only one who came forth. HE NEEDS TO BE ON HERE!!!

I feel so angry about this "so-called" list. When Tom Ridge was govenor, I got a local Pittsburg news channel to ask him why there was no sex offender list at that time. He wrote ME a letter in response that stated that would be an invasion of their privacy. How about all the victims who had their privacy invaded when someone touched them or had to sit through trials and questionings? I live in WV now, But PA will always be my home. I have friends with small children, I am concerned about this.

There is alot of things that question minds towards our systems actions when it comes to these so's. as a mother of four beautiful children, and out of those four, having one child molested by a family member, I have went through how the State really works systems, and to be frank, "It Sucks" My Step Brother got arrested, out in 24 hours on Bond which was $50.000.00 asking for only a certain percent down which in return was $5000.00. Our family has lived a life long He** this year, and this whole time he has been out and God knows who he may be hurting until trial comes. Well the state gave him the choice of a 7 year sentence(out on good behavior) instead of the 10 years they were asking, and no trial, Basicly they wanted the sase over to be honest. So he took the 7 year sentence, with life long Preditor, but my son has no say so on his feelings, we as his parents have no say so on how we feel, and since this is his first offence he will get a second chance in our society (within time) I have called every news channel on this, contacted the state, and contacted talk shows, just too try to get some understanding on the way this system works, not only have I had no responce, I have found out other research on my own, and the fact is unless you have money, ties with someone, or are a celb... we are a number to them and so is our children (the victums) This is sadd because they are our future, and by the way things are really operated in the system they are more for the molestor then the molested. I wish I did'nt have to be so true, but after a year of He**, and hearing, and seeing things for myself thats the way it works. So every time I read e-mails from upset people complaining about their private things being on line towards them, because of what they did, take a look at the child, family, and life you took away from the child, and family, that they will never get back, especially the child, and go wine to some one else who cares.

There is a child rapist posing as a christian school principle. He repeatedly rape a child for four years in another school in new England. He is now in the Elizabethtown area if anyone cares. She was only 11 yrs old at the time and was so innocent she didn't have the vulgar vocabulary to explain it to us. Just a warning! We believe he has done this before.

To the poster of an entry on February 28th 2007 who inquired as to why her assailant was not on this list.

You state in your post that "...he was charged..." Was he found Guilty of the crime? If not found Guilty or if he did not Plead Guilty, he will not be within the registry. Has the case against him gone to trial yet? Did he do what is very common, plead Guilty to a lesser offense? Most Courts are over-worked. The prisons are generally full. Trials are expensive. Courts work-out deals with criminals way too often. The end result gets a Conviction on the Prosecutor's next resume, punishes the criminal (but to a lesser degree), saves the taxpayers money, expedites the entire process, and benefits the criminal by getting a reduced sentence and quite often, something less on his Conviction Record than what everybody knows he actually did. The laws that allow plea bargaining must be changed. Without knowing the details of your specific incident, I can't really speculate or comment further, but I would not doubt, with what little I know as fact right now, there is a very strong likelihood that a plea bargain was made that benefitted the Court, the criminal, but not the victim. I would be willing to bet he plead Guilty to the equivilant of an Aggravated Assault charge, had the sexual part of the assault dropped as part of his plead deal, so he will of course, carry a criminal record with him, but not be mandated to register as a Sexual Offender. If anyone out there feels as though they need to be a rebel but don't have a clue as to what they want to fight for and actually want to do something worthwhile, the laws that allow such plea deals need some serious adjusting. They might be fine for various Motor Vehicle offenses and minor crimes, but they should be abolished for any and all crimes that directly involve any degree of physical harm or violence toward any other human being.

Do you individuals who wish to burn every individual who makes a mistake in this country. It is utterly ridiculous to believe that some of you with a 15 year old boy to fall under Meganís Law. How about a little accountability from the kidsí parents. Also you people think that if you commit one sex offense that you will automatically re-offend. You want every offender monitored to the utmost extent. When will you be screaming to make colonies for registered sex offenders to be monitored in and need passes to leave? We have done our time in prison and I am not defending those who re-offend I think some clear lines need to be drawn between the sick perverse people of this world and those who, and I am not trying to minimalize any sexual offense, but believe it or not there are individuals who do rehabilitate. There are individuals who would like to become successful in their lives and it is not fair to punish them for the rest of their lives for one mistake made as a dumb kid. Do we require drunk drivers to have a special license tag warning everybody about the dangers of driving near them? Do we require thieves to go door to door in their neighborhoods warning their neighbors of the dangers of living next to them because of a mistake made years ago? Do we really want to live in a country that gets this extreme with their criminals? If we do not believe in rehabilitation why do we even bother letting criminals out of jail? The bad thing is the politicians really don't care about limiting sex offenders. They are using it as a platform to get elected and nothing more. It affects a group they really don't care about because we can't vote, so we don't matter. They would have you believe that all sex offenders are just like those in Florida who after being released kidnap 11-year-old girls, abuse them and bury them in the woods. Please America; don't be so naive to think that every individual convicted of a sex offense is this way. Don't buy into their platform. Don't give them another routine line like "tax cuts" to make the public happy and get themselves elected. Use your human brains and allow every free citizen of the United States to be just that.... Free.

Just that mere fact that you compared a thief to a sexual offender had me thinking I should not even waste my time responsding, however I need to respond with two sentences. 1. No, I do not believe in giving a sexual offender a second chance just to "see" if he/she is not rehabilited and going to destoy mine and my son's life. 2. I do believe we should do what you suggested about drunk drivers, they too, destroy lives without a care.

Scott age 46 seeing a 14 year old girl in a sexual way, her name is Laurel they are both on myspace, He see's nothing wrong with this, here are their web pages.

What do you do in a situation like this?

Posted by Linda (not registered) on Jul 11, 2007 11:56 AM

To the scared Mom posting of May 18th, yes I do believe given the chance you will do it again. I do not think certain types of criminals can be rehabilitated and I am not willing to sacrifice my childs well being to prove one of us is right. Better safe than sorry. It is bad enough my tax dollars had to support the sexual offenders while they are being so called "rehabilitated", now I have to live near them. Yes I would be in favor of putting all of them in a community with monitoring. Not being a criminal I deserve to be free not the sexual offenders. Yes drunk drivers should also be tagged so to speak as they also cause permanent damage. If you are a mother than why would you defend sex offenders? It makes me ill to think you would take the chance with your kids.

why do we now have to pay for the right to know the id's of sexual predators in Pa. ??I remember not long ago this was a free service, now it costs 10 bucks to find out if a pervert is living next door to us. This should be a FREE service available to all concerned people.

The state of PA is way out of line. You are making it impossible for web providers and citizens to keep kids safe

Posted by Oldtimer on Sep 21, 2007 08:59 PM

It is your responsibility to keep your kids "safe", by educating them about inappropriate contact. (IMHO)I do not think it is the state of pa's responsibility. The world was just as safe/unsafe when I was a kid, but parents did not live in such fear. Kids stayed out until dark playing ball, etc. Yes, we knew not to take rides from strangers...but parents weren't as neurotic as they are today...just ask someone who grew up back then. I wish you luck with this struggle.

Posted by Diana (not registered) on Sep 22, 2007 12:40 PM

I don't think the system is working. I have tried looking up a particular sex offender, that I know of. He is not registered. His name doesn't appear in the Pennsylvania and the National Registry. How is justice served? He raped my 2 daughters years upon years. He served some time, but got out on good behavior. Can anyone see the problem? There were no children there. Of course, it was good behavior.

Posted by Oldtimer on Sep 23, 2007 03:30 PM

The man may not be on the registry because he did not fall into the catagories of registration in his state. Some are avoiding the registry by plea bargaining out of it prior to sentencing. This happens all the time in my state. Someone is on the registry for a crime 20plus years ago and the new and most dangerous cases get away free. (recidivism is highest after incarceration) Also, what was warned has come true: The registry has forced offenders underground. Some have changed identity like illegal aliens do. Some live with relatives and use their accounts to hide. Some have now lost jobs and live under bridges, etc. This is just wonderful...Police can't win the war on drugs. we expect they will win the war on offense? There are new cases every day committed by people NOT on a registry. and so it goes...

Posted by Mom of falsely convicted (not registered) on Oct 22, 2007 03:58 PM

I'm just so sick of the "sex offender" hysteria I could puke. Yes, there are bad people out there who want to hurt children. There are also bad cops and bad prosecutors who wish to feather their caps by pursuing cases that really should wither and die. The current state of affairs is that there are way too many people considered "sex offenders" because of ridiculous, draconian laws, and due to this overbearing and overreaching legislation, the TRUE offenders who are dangerous to society get lost in the sea of knee-jerk legislation. For God's sake, let's stop swamping the sex offender registry with those who are not and will never be a danger to YOUR or MY children. And those who you who pore over the sex offender registry, stop freaking out if you see a "sex offender" listed in your area. He might be registered because he urinated in public, or because as a 19-year-old, he had a relationship with a 15-year-year-old. That's how ridiculous the registry laws are. And because of the hysterical laws, there are many, many convicted who have never done anything wrong at all. It takes a crackerjack lawyer and lot of money to defeat an accusation like that in court. To make "society" feel safer, they were convicted and now have to deal with the registry that so many of you are so reliant upon. The Salem Witch Trials were abominable. But we, as a society, as behaving much the same as those poor ignorant people did so long ago. WATCH YOUR CHILDREN. That is the bottom line. Do NOT leave it to the government, or some registry, to do your job as a parent.

You know I have been reading some of these comments and they make me sick ............... they do if someone thinks that there step father didnt rape his x wife because she was married to him that child must be sick because RAPE is RAPE i dont care if they were lovers for years if she says no that means NO and I just cant get over how some people think others didnt do the crime they were charged for ask yourself do you really know the person do you know everything about them or do you think you know because nobody ever really knows anyone my mother has been with her boyfriend over 11 years and she doesnt believe her boyfriend raped me or my siblings but personally I think people are sick not to believe something a child said because its not like they can make it up or anything I didnt tell till I was 17 but the point is when you think you know someone you really dont know them at all and people make me sick

Posted by Oldtimer on Nov 18, 2007 09:43 AM

I wouild agree with you to the degree that there are people who are in "denial" about rape. It is often too painfule (IMHO) for some married partners to face the fact that their spouse could be guilty or raping a grandchild or child. Denial is used to keep from dealing with the issue. I knew a family that all slept in the same bedroom on matresses. The husband was having sex with the daughter while the mother slept nearby. The mother constantly denied that her daughter could be getting raped. This was another "home schooled" situation, which keeps the child from talking to authorities about the constant sexual activity. The state on the other hand puts its head in the sand concerning home schooling as a tool to isolate children.

i dont understand how the whole justice system works to protect the innocent. i'm from new york and my brother moved to PA with his fiancee to be closer to her family. well right before they moved my brothers fiancee's daughter claimed that he had molested her little sister, in hopes (which she admitted) to breakin them up because she didn't want them together. she lives with her dad who has full custody of her and her sister, but she had it set that she could get her parents back together. well when it came to interviewing her sister about the alleged "molesting" she came forth and admitted that they lied about it in hopes to split my brother and their mother up....all charges were dropped obviously due to false allegations. my brother and his fiancee moved to PA and being the caring and understanding brother he is, he let the girls come into their home for to spend the summer with their hopes to start fresh and put the hurtful past behind them. in the end, it didn't work out and their mom sent them back to new york and her oldest was extremely upset and claimed to her dad that my brother raped her several times while she was down in PA. it ended up goin to court and the judge didn't take anything into consideration...he would not even look at the police report stating there were false allegations before against my brother. and there was not physical proof my brother did anything to her. it was her word against his. when someone goes to court on charges you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but my brother had to go to court and prove he was innocent. how does that work? i know there are sex offenders out there, but i'm 100% that there are a great deal of innocent people serving time for crimes they didn't commit. my brother would have received 25 years max for the charges against him...but he ended up only receiving 5 years because he had to plea bargin...and he only plea bargined because there was no chance and he would have be sentenced less time. i dont think the justice system is fair at all. i do believe that SO's can change, i do believe there are repeated SO's but now my brother has to register as one and he isn't even one. how embarassing and humilating can that be for someone?

Posted by momincrisis (not registered) on Dec 21, 2007 11:55 PM

While we were married and having our own children, my spouse molested 4 young innocent girls. He plead guilty to several counts of corruption and indecent assault. Since then I have been fighting over custody with him. Did you know in PA Convicted Sex Offenders have all their parental rights in PA after Parole is done? I have spent over 50 grand to protect my children and others. The judge has played the game of no physical custody to partial physical custody for my spouse. The judge gave him shared legal custody from the beginning and it hasn't changed. This means that he has the right to be at our kids functions, school events and more and that's where other potential victims of his are and some of them might be your kids. I am starting to get a group together to start petition PA Law to make changes when it comes to Sex Offenders and custody of their children. I do understand SOs who have been 18 and were charged with molestation of their girlfriend is different (i don't include if they raped).

Some laws need to be that once a person has plead guilty or been convicted as a Sex Offender this person must be immediately reported to CYS. CYS must report to the Offenders children's other parent so they are made aware (because sometimes they don't know). Their legal custody of their children should be permanently terminated. If a sex offender can't decide not to offend how can they make decisions for children? any children?

when I was about to turn 10 years oold my sister told me that I was going to have the best birthday ever. And the same day I turn 10 years old she told me to stay home with her husband while she went shopping. I got raped by him { that was my special birthday present} And he kept raping me for 2 years. My sister and her husband treated me like a dog. When i didnt move the right way or did exactly what the porn star on the movie was doing I was punish. Had my hands and feet tied up and I needed to sit next to a German Shepperd ina very small closet. Me and the dog needed to eat the same food, and yeah they used to throw me the bones after they were done eating. He did the same thing to my sister daughter.

but the point is that they both are free, He is a free men. Is not register as an offender and the only thing they ask for him is not to be around underage girls. But guess what he used to molest boys too. I'm happy that I went to trial because I didn't want to be just one more that hides a secret. But at the end, I think is not worth it, because they keep moving on with their lifes like nothing happened. And I got paralyzed for the rest of mines. Is true if you dont have money you are just one more number.

why? My nephew was found guilty at age 13 of sex offenses against my child, the case was trasnfered to the state he lives in (Maryland) Pennsylvania never followed his case, they transfered it to maryland and never watched him or his case, He is now 15 and involved in sending and recieving child porn, he is sexually active and takes pictures of the girls naked and then sends them to other minors he knows on line and text messages. I have reported his behaviors and my concerns to PA Juv.service and probation, I have contacted the DA's office in Pennsylvania, and child services in Maryland, No one does anything. He has reoffended in Pennsylvania and again Pennsylvania did nothing. What else has to happen? How many more victims are needed? I warned about him 2 years ago, I am warning now, he is a sexual preditor and will rape if not stopped. Why isn't anyone doing anything? Why hasn't he been charged with child porn? Why didn't he have to register as an offender? It shouldn't matter the age of the offender, Once they offend they should have to be on the list, sex offence doesn't go away, it's not a pair of shoes they out grow. They will always be offenders, the world has a right to know who they are and what they have done.

Posted by Oldtimer on Feb 15, 2008 10:47 AM

Kids do things. I do not believe the police are dropping the ball on your nephew, but rather that he has not crossed the line in a way that they can legally charge him. Then again, there is the possibility that they are watching who is connected to, to see where the photos are coming from.

It sounds like you have done what you feel is right. Just keep a watchful eye, but also don't get neurotic about what is happening if you don't have all the facts. (IMO) Maybe I don't understand the whole story on this one, either.

Posted by Oldtimer on May 09, 2008 10:52 AM

Bill, (IMO) he would have to consult with an attorney in his state as to his rights. Considering what I have found out so far, the states are saying it is ok to deny the constitutional rights of an offender because it is being done in the name of "safety of the general public". This is changing however. First of all, as the public finds the registry does not provide "safety" from offenders. People are beginning to see that the laws as they now stand are set up to "punish", rather than provide "safety". If your brother has no money, he might seek out pro bono information or look for a charity law organization. Good luck.

I want to know why people that commit sexual offenses get off with the charge of a lesser offense? I want to know why the child is the one to blame and when it comes into court, the wife knows the whole time that it has been happening and she takes the husbands is bullshit. If they are going to be like that, I think the other person should be charged right along with the person doing it to their child or step child. Then the person moves on like nothing happened and more children become in harms way. This should be stopped whether the woman takes the mans side or not.

Polygraphs can be fooled (IMO). If he admitted to the crime, then he has to do the time. I think there is a brain scan polygraph that is being tested as more accurate, now.

To anonymous responding to scared mom. Where is the justice when protecting one child hurts another? We should want to protect ALL children, not just our own. If some parents were more responsible there would'nt be as many child abuse or abductions or sexual assaults to our children. But, what about the children of sex offenders? Why should they be punished? They have the right to live a safe and happy life, but because of our National Sex Offender Registry there are thousands of children suffering. This to me is devastating.

I find it sickening that the father of my child was convicted in the state of Iowa for sexualy abusing our daughterr and the district attorny in Harrison county Iowa plea barganed it down to a charge of lasivies acts and slaped his hands. This happened in the mid 90's. He then moves to PA and doesnt even regester as a sex ffender in that state untill I start makeing noise, he marries a women with small children and contenues to denie that it even happened. He moves off of Graystone RD in Manhiem PA and runs to Africa in March of 2008 so he and his new wife can take in children, under the umbrella of a church of course, he has always hid behind the pulpit. There is no stopping him this side of Heaven. My only comfort is now that he is out of the country my daughter is going to counseling, she is now 29 years old. The saddest part of this whole mess is the fact that he had been molesting her sence she was 3, she had supressed so many memories, so much pain. He has his new family and the church believing it was somthing our baby dreamed and I had built a lie from the dream to ruin his life. My problem is this. Why are we plea barganing with sex offfenders at all??????? We shouldnt, it sends a horrible message to the victim. This isn't like any other crime, sexual abuse should be stopped, the abuser doesn't rehabilatate he just gets smarter as he goes. How does one go about changeing the law that allows plea barganning for sex offenders?

Posted by anon (not registered) on Sep 13, 2008 09:28 AM

Here is something to think about. My best friend and I were both "touched" by her uncle, when we were about 12. Neither of us ever told anyone. To me it should have been obvious to his wife. She was calling out his name in the middle of the night only he could not answer because he would have been caught. They went on to have 3 smart and beautiful children of their own. I feel a bit of guilt for being scared to speak up. I only hope he didnt do anything to his own children. My point is, for every offender that is registered there are probably 10 more that are never even charged. So everybody take care of your own! Have to be aware of everything and always on guard I guess.

I was just looking and my cousin had molested his step daughter back in 1992, and on there it asks if it was of a minor and his profile says not applicable! It should be known that he has molested a minor child! These things need to be listed!

What about the sex offender who never even touched a child? You know, like someone who just simply looked at porn on their computer of 17 year olds (out of curiousity) but got caught in a sting? Sick? Perhaps! But hardly worthy of having the rest of their lives ruined. Come on people, lets punish the real sickos who go out and hurt children, and give those who havent really done anything THAT bad (IMHO), a second chance!!!

I used to work for an org that housed sex offenders. Most of them are not on this website, even some here were ordered to live at the orgs housing by court because of their crimes against children. I don't understand why the sex offenders on here have been picked and others haven't. It must be known that this database is only a small picture of the sex offenders in PA. Many of them are child molesters who are court ordered, living somewhere deep in the woods, next to houses of families with children who have no idea. I wrote to the attorney general a few months ago but have gotten no response.

in massachusetts, unless you know the exact name of the sex offender you cant look them up. This is unfair and unsafe for kids. For all we know one is living next door or working at a place kids go. Good job protecting perps mass, you suck.

I have been reading through much of these comments and I have not seen any situation where a young woman who is rather loose with her morals and does everything that she can to egg a man sexually. Even though I do know that it is the responsibility of the adult to walk away, I also know that there are many young woman out there that do whatever it takes to seduce men. When the men take the bate, it is there lives that are ruined. I believe that the parents should be aware of what their daughters are doing. But nothing is ever heard about the part the young women play. They say it is to protect the minors. I am sure that is the case in many situations, but if they are old enough to know how to use their bodies to lead these men on, then they are only minors by law. Don't get me wrong, I do believe that the adult should be held responsible, but I also believe that the young woman that uses her body to edge men on should, at the very least, be a factor. I am not saying to criminally punish them, but they should know that this kind of action can completely ruin lives. I am speaking for someone who never abused anyone, never even laid a hand on anyone, but is being punished as he is a monster. Where are the parents?

I have been in this battle for years. If you are wanting to keep your daughter safe then file for custody order before he gets out and/or off parole! In PA he has full parental rights including physical and legal custody. If your worried, move to VA where they are very strict.

Charlie, I hope you find it within yourself to deal with this situation now. Dont bury what has happened and dont blame yourself for your brothers actions. I was also raped when I was about 13, now being 33 and a mother I can tell you that every day is one day closer to healing. You never forget , but it does get easier, Helping others sometimes revlieves the pain. Stay strong...

There is only one thing to do with sex offenders..particularly child molesters. put them in a room, tie them up in a chair, give their victims and the victims' families sharp, pointy objects, and close the door. kill the bastards, and make it as painful a process as possible.

i am wondering about this. all i see and read are people worried about a convicted sex offenders who done their time ( i mite add) living in their area but because the law says a convicted sex offender has to register so YOU feel safe in your area thats a bunch of bullshit. what funny to me is you people worry about a convicted sex offenders living in your area tell me this how many sex offender walk into a school or a mall and open fire on people? come on tell me.. YOU CAN'T. because most convicted sex offenders are NOT a real threat. The reason people like you just got to know where Convicted sex offenders are is you want to put fear in their lives. well if that the case then you mite as well be a terrorist opps you are. the real terrorist are people like you and the US Sen. and ALL the States LAW MAKERS. but you worry about those sex offenders who hasn't commited any terrorist act as you done.

Hey! What about all the men in the world who have been convicted of possessing CP, when it was there girlfriend or wife who downloaded it because things did not go their way? What about them? How do you like the fact that women out there are setting a precedence, which tells us that if a girlfriend gets mad because she knows her bf is going to break up with him and while he is at work or asleep, can get away with downloading CP on his hard drive? To top it off SHE is educated in criminal Justice and her father is a corrupt ex cop who is affiliated with the police station and the FBI! Insult to injury, her relative did the same thing to her ex husband so he could not get custody of the kids! What do we do for THOSE men? All the lawyers do is take their money and tell them to take a plea bargain. So in the end, they have to admit to something they did not do so they only get 5 years instead of 30 years and possibly a lifetime of SO registration, which makes them a victim of angry folks like you who don't always know the whole story. I hate SOs I was raped, I was molested and I would like to see nothing less than death for them, but discerning, be humane and find out the truth. And if anyone out there has any ideas about helping the men out there who ARE innocent victims of disgruntled EXs, I would appreciate that. Also, I wanted to know, I am going to marry this poor guy, will I be responsible for his fines while in prison?

Hey now i know that ever body has the right to their own opinion, and that people are gonna say what they wanna say, but i need to say mine. I am 17 years old and i was convicted for a sexual crime in Michigan in 2002. I was 12 when it happened and convicted just after my 13th birthday. Now i still cant tell you why i did it but i know now that it was wrong, I've been moelsted by a few different people and, was raped by a woman that was 21. I didnt know that was wrong. But now that i see I hurt some one i haunts me still today, my 18th birthday is in 12 days andn i still have 1 more year of school... But now i feel that i might not be able to return to school because of the fact that i go to a vocational tech school too, that there are 5 schools that will know that i am a sex offender... How do you think im gonna take the rest of my life now, all because i did something wrong that, and i didnt even know it too. many people sit back and think to themselves that "once a sex offender alwas a sex offender." Well your wrong i come from a family that didnt care that much and im trying to change my life around for 5 years now and im doing good in school i am learing a good occupational trate and i wanted to join the service when i was younger to be able to serve my glorious country. but i cant because im just a sex offender....and thats what i been thinking for five years!!! but that aint gonna stop by birthday from comming.. my life is already F*cked >> but no body cares bout it tho .. thanks for your time

I understand the courts are busy. Taxpayers are footing the bills for abused families and prosecutions. Medicare Medicaid. If your Title is not valid - your body should be property of the state. The state should spend money on education like using them for medical coursework. Going to College would be a way to cut costs and preserve life.

He molested her several times. He is supposed to be registered and it has been 8 months and he is still not registered.

Posted by jodygurl on Jun 29, 2009 10:34 AM

Ok my niece was molested by her own father since she was a little girl, her mother came forward, and my sister in law was awarded custody of the child. The molestation took place in arkansas, but they had moved out of state to Iowa where is was reported. This is what troubles me alot, the judge looked at him and said the crime did not accure in Iowa and let him go free. PEOPLE WAKE UP, THIS IS WHY VICTIMS DO NOT COME FORWARD. I am one of those victims that would rather let it go, than suffer from the embarrasment and watch a the person who did this to me go free. There is no justice for victims

I guess when the constitution was being written, there wasnt sexual abuse like there is today or atleast no one was talking about it. I also assume that justice was a bit swift and they didnt feel the need to make laws for such a criminal act and that a simple hanging from the gallows would do.

There needs to be specific laws protecting victims for assualts, with stiffer penitalies. I would like the all the states to come into an agreement to make it into fedrel law that if you are convicted of a sex crime that you will have a tattoo placed on a person with the crime and the age of the victim. Since there is no cure for the abuser, than they should not be able to enter into society without a known mark about what they have done.

Child abuse is a world wide epidemic, but the reason for it becoming an epidemic is because they know that they can abuse a child but get a slap on the wrist for doing so, and they are willing to take the chance.

Dont get me wrong, I dont believe and eighteen year old should be charged with sexual assualt on a seventeen year old as long as it is consentual. Im talking about the sick SOB's that touch children and mentally incompetent people.

In final i will say this, unless we can put forth into a effect a law that would hold states responsible for proscuting abusers no matter where the crime accured as long as there is sufficent evidence showing that indeed a crime had been committed.

Why wouldn't you want a sex offender around you or your family. At least you would know and have something to be aware of. You need to be more vigilant of Tom or Dick at work than a covicted sex offender. Its the people who aren't convicted sex offenders that you have to look out for. 93% of new sex crimes are committed by people who are not a convicted sex offender.

Posted by Oldtimer on Jul 17, 2009 08:23 PM

To:Eye on my children: I'm sorry...(IMO) that's a bit sick. Not only do you scare the heck out of your kids (It's debatable if they will trust anyone), but you also neglect to teach them who may molest them that is NOT on the registry. Do some research, yourself. It is not the guy down the street they need to fear, but rather someone who is close to the family (according to dept. justice studies). And, what makes you think you have identified ALL the offenders locally? How about doing something more enjoyable with your children that would enrich their lives?

Posted by Mike (not registered) on Jul 18, 2009 08:43 PM

I agree with Oldtimer on this. Just because you show them pictures of registered sex offenders doesn't mean you are protecting them. Your giving them a false sense of security. Your setting them up for something that could be far worse. You need to teach them about all the danger than just registered sex offenders. Family members even thier friends or someone they know can molest them. By you showing them just registered sex offenders you are hurting them. These are the ONLY people they are going to see as threat. I can tell you I was never molested by a stranger. I was molested by a childhood friend. My childhood friend. I was also molested by 2 children of friends of the family.

My boyfriend was convicted of sexual assualt 12 years ago *his current girlfriend and him got into a fight and she said he raped her* a couple days ago he was arrested because he did not update his address in the amount of time. He told the police station he didnt have a perm. home and was hoping from one couch to the next until he registered when he moved in with me. Now they are saying hes facing 5-10 years for failure to update address. IS THIS LEGAL!?!? He made them aware he wasnt at a perm address until he was at mine, and he went right away and registered. Im so confused!

Massachusetts SUCKS when it comes to justice for victims of sexual assault. I know 3 bright children who were all molested by their mom's ex, a level 1 offender, who never got what he deserved - jail time. now those poor kids are growing up scared and dysfunctional and the mom tries so hard to keep them together. Fortunately for the sex offender they were poor and black so the justice department, DSS, all those social workers and therapists couldn't care less, as long as they kept their paycheck coming as they sought help.Too bad for being the wrong race and the wrong socioeconomic background in Massachusetts, cuz anytime you watch the evening news,the only sex offender related tragedies that are reported are that of Caucasian children as if children of color aren't sexually assaulted in Massachusetts. Please don't get it twisted: I wish NO harm on Any child regardless of nationality, race, or creed. But it does make you wonder why the plight of children of color who've been raped is never brought to light on the Fox 25 news. To top it off, you can't even educate yourself on where these level 1 & 2 bastards live because they do repeat the offense, they just don't get caught because the justice system over compensates for its incompetence endangering our children and the rest of civilized society.

Posted by donna (not registered) on Aug 13, 2009 11:05 PM

The fact is that not all "sex offenders" are child molesters. Not all of them are "predators". It absolutely disgust me that Megans law lumps everyone into one category no scale....My husband is a registered sex offender and this law is completely set up for people who rape and molest CHILDREN! I met him AFTER his offense and he is not a monster and his crime wasnt what everyone out here makes it out to be. I feel his pain everyday, that he is soley judged by this website. The law is wrong on this one and is destroying lives. Im not posting what he did, because ultimately a victim is a victim and Im not here to judge her. The law has to be fixed. However with all these gung ho moms who have to put all these people on blast because the absolutely have nothing else to do, the law will never change. By the way, I am a mother of three and he is the father of three. This law should be done on a case to case basis....and to force a life time registry is a violation of his basic human rights. The whole thing just makes me angry. My molester when I was a girl, got to walk around until he died last year. He should have been on blast.. but no. My husband however is because... again I wont do that.

Posted by scrambledlife (not registered) on Aug 16, 2009 04:16 PM

After reviewing Megan's Law, or rather, the reasons behind it, I have to ask "what the HELL was going through the parents' head that made them think it was 'ok' to interact with ANY stranger?" So, an apparently dangerous REPEAT offender took the life of young girl. This is a tragic thing, and his sentence should have been death by firing squad, carried out the next day. BUT, instead, a witch-hunting crusade has started. Not just against the violent offenders, but even the young people (aged 17-21 and even younger) who find themselves falling for a minor and getting sexually involved with one another. These young men and women are suddenly at the mercy of hypertensive parents, and the law suddenly turns into a tool of extreme vengeance, rather then justice. To these parents, and anyone like them, find another outlet for your weakness as a parent, instead of taking it out on the person your teen=age son or daughter is seeing. Jackasses.

You all need to get the facts on exactly get you put on the sex offender registry. I am there and don't belong along with a lot of other people. Granted some certianly do! The people this really hurt are the children of an offender. I have custody of my kids now 21 and 17, and have for the past 10 years. My daughter and son have gone through school being talked about and made fun of because of Megans law. They never did a thing to anyone yet are being punnished. Is that fair to them? No! not all people who have to register are preditors or have any history of showing any interest in a sexually related crime especally on a minor. The law needs to change. Your kids are no safer now than they were 20 years ago. Do what my parents did, watch your kids, know where they are and who they are with. Do you know if there are any convicted murderers in your neighborhood? I think you would be suprised how close you live to drug dealers and murderers.

Posted by Joy in Pittsburgh (not registered) on Nov 05, 2009 10:46 AM

I wish there were some different "levels" in the registry. I have a friend who's on it, for touching a teenage girl on the upper chest. My friend was born with an unusual number of chromosomes. Unlike regular men, who have an X and a Y, or normal women, who have two X's, this person has two X's and a Y. The physical result of that is tiny male "parts" with internal organs that are halfway between testes and ovaries. The mental result can include emotional immaturity, and degree of language learning impairment and "deficits in executive functions"--which is a fancy way of saying, "a tendency to dither or make poor choices, especially when under stress." Sex drive and sexual intent are usually low. In this case, the loss of the Y chromosome in some cells meant that my friend is "partly female, partly intersex." She identifies as female now, after being forced to grow up as a boy, despite having been convinced she was a girl since the age of 4. She worked in a machine shop (as a guy) trying to act tough. But the awareness of being a girl was also always there. This set up a situation for one of those classic Kleinfelters "bad choices." She was thinking of herself as a woman--a straight woman--when she put her hand on a girl's chest. Naturally, the girl and the world didn't think of it that way. And naturally, it's also not OK for women to put their hands on girls' chests without permission.

But now, my friend has had her gonads removed, she's on supplemental estrogen, she's living as a woman. Her source of gender stress (and bad decision making) is gone.

But she still has to pay a huge chunk of her very modest income for monitoring, pay for lie detector tests twice a year, and submit photographs every few months, and keep a daily diary of everyone she's talked to, where she's been, and what she's fantasized about. She has to get to appointments even if she's sick, even though she has to live so far out of town that she can't catch a bus, even though she's almost 60, has injuries from an old car accident, and has to rely on an old bicycle for transportation.

For months, she says, her minder kept insisting that she was faking when she wrote down fantasies about mature men, instead of girls, and kept telling her that he'd report her if she didn't write down her "real" fantasies. (I've known her for a bit over a year, and I can attest that she gets tongue-tied and coy around older men--NOT women.)

So I have some questions: first, is it really appropriate for her to be under the same level of oversight as someone who has, say, raped a toddler?

Is there really any reasonable expectation that she's going to re-offend?

And more generally, is it really effective to have a probation situation where people insist that the folks they are overseeing come up with sick, twisted fantasies involving kids, and shame them or threaten them when they don't? Isn't that perverse? Might that not trigger molestation, rather than preventing it?
