I am the mother of a juvenile sex offender. My son was 13 when he was convicted, and he spent 2 1/2 years in DOC. He is now in treatment, which is part of his parole. Treatment will be for 1 year. He will be on parole until the age of 21. He has to register as a sex offender for life and is never allowed to return home because his siblings are minors.
This is my nightmare that I have been living with, already for three years, and evidently for all our lives.
