At what point do we (sex offenders) get to be members of our society again? As for me, I’m told, never! I committed my crime. I went to prison. I spent three and a half years in therapy to figure out “How did I get here?” while in prison, then two more years while on parole. (I found out). It does not seem to matter to the government. It does to me. I have changed my way of thinking about myself, my family, my friends and people I don’t even know. The government has said that we (sex offenders) can’t be helped. That’s a lie! It’s up to each individual to want to change. It’s up to the government to step up and take responsibility for the laws they have made about sex offenders.
