I am a sex offender. I want to say that it is very easy to be labled as one. All it takes is one small mistake. In my case I had a lot of porn on my computer, and one of the files happened to be of two fifteen yr olds. When my neighbor used my computer he found it on there and reported it to the police. Now I face 13 years on probation and I have already been in jail for 2 years. It is near immpossibel to find a job or a place to live when you have to register. I am currently homeless, I am using my ex-wifes computer to search for work and a place to live. I can't live with her because there is a church down the street from her house, and a homeless shelter won't take a sex offender. Where does that leave me on the street.Every thing I have read on this page about our justice system is correct. I agree with the registry but it has its faults. What has happened is that a lot of the serous offenders have found loopholes, so the system has cracked down. Which has resulted in people that otherwise would have never been convicted. People that don't try to have or do anything illegal. Yes all it takes is word of mouth for a conviction. Some detectives that are not as corrupt will check into a persons creditability, but usually that is as far as it goes.
One last thought before I go. Don't bash a sex offender. I never thought I would be labled as one, and did the same **** ***** sex offender this and ***** sex offender that. I just want to say now reconsider not every one is as how they are labled. It could happen to anybody.
I do NOT condone any type of illegal sexual behavior. I write this for people wrongly accussed.
