I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all of your prayers, support, encouragement, and above all else your friendship. It worked !!!!!! As of yesterday, I am officially removed from the TN Sex Offender Registry and no longer under any registration requirements.
The feeling of the weight of the registry being lifted off of my shoulders after twenty three years is indescribable, but it has given me a new determination to fight for the rights of all registrants so that all of them and their families affected by these laws can one day feel the same overwhelming joy that I am feeling right now.
I am still unfortunately listed on the Florida registry which in turn lists me on the National registry but that is a battle for another time and place. For right now I will settle for our TN victory and focus on changing the laws for everyone’s benefit.
Thanks again for your friendship and support. Your friend in the battle.
