An Animal Is Treated Better Than My Son!

originally posted 4/4/2010

My son, age 18, had consentual sex with a 14 year old, who said she was 17 years old. He was judically blackmailed by the DA to take a plea
bargain.

When we first refused he changed the charges to make them more severe. After a year and a half of waiting for a trail we finally agreed to a
plea “deal”. I wish I could go back and redo that
decision. My son served 3 years in prison and has served 12 years in HELL as a registered sex offender. No job, no future, NO HOPE.

My family’s life or future has never been ‘normal’ since that day. We
spend most of our efforts and money trying to ‘fix’ a grown man, but
the restrictions placed on him as a Sex offender make him ‘unfixable.’
We recently relocated him to a small town and were working hard on
getting his own business started (finally a job that could be secure)
when the local paper published the county’s list of registered sex
offenders. My son was stunned to see his picture on the front page. He
sat on the sofa and wept uncontrollably. A grown man, age 31, crying like a 5 year old. It just breaks my heart!! All because a 18 year old boy
wanted to have sex with a girl who suggested it. And even said she suggested it.

An animal in a shelter is treated better than my son. It’s a disgrace
that politians build their careers on the backs of these young people.
The laws they pass do nothing to protect children from harm, it only
provides them a fail-safe political platform.
