I am a 48 year old sex offender and it’s been 15 years since I offended. I live in solitude because I don’t feel like I’m an equal; human like everyone else. I raised three step children to be fine adults with good family values. I don’t make friends because I know how people feel about sex offenders, I hear people make comments about sex offenders. I know there are people who need to be monitored because they keep doing it, but I learned that I made a real bad decision. I would like the chance to help and maybe prevent it from ever happening again to anyone. I have to register every 90 days and every time I get the same feeling inside me, it takes away my dignity and self respect.
