My Daughter Can’t Be in Girl Scouts

originally posted 2/6/2010

It seems no matter how hard we try to change some of these laws we will not be able to.   Once a law is made it is forever on the books and rarely ever changed.   I was 19 years old and met a girl who was 14 years old at the mall;  well, we ended up having sex and dated for just a few weeks and than we stopped seeing each other.  Almost 2 years went by and I was called downtown and asked about how I knew this girl…. .Long story short – her parents found an old letter that she wrote to one of her girl friends about me and her parents read it and went down town to file a complaint.   This was 2 years later.  By that time, I had a fiancee and she was  four months pregnant with our baby!  I go to court for having sex with a girl who is under age and the judge gave me five years in prison, so I missed my first daughter being born amongst other things.

It is many years later now — I am almost 40 years old, am married and have a nine year old daughter and a 15 year old daughter – yet I have to register for life and cannot go to any of my daughters’ school events. My 9 year old daughter can not be in girl scouts because she has a family member who is a registered sex offender – this is per the girl scouts’ rules. but no matter what when my kids graduate from high school I will be there, regardless of the rules or laws!  They just keep adding onto my sentence which I completed a long time ago. Best of luck to everyone!!!!
