I was convicted for committing a sex offense in 1990, in Nebraska, and spent 12 1/2 years in prison for it. �Initially, upon release, I was required to register for 10 years. �Now, under a new law going in to effect next year, I will be required to register for life, even though there is nothing to indicate I pose any more of a threat to society than I did upon my release from custody in 2003. �In
addition, I will be required to supply any and all internet identifiers I have, such as email addresses, will be required to sign a consent form giving authorities permission to search my home without a warrant or any sort of cause, and will be committing a felony if I access/use social networking sites and instant messaging services, even if I have no contact with minors on any of them.
