I spent over 20 years in prison for my crimes and served every day of that time. I accepted may sentence but found myself being sentenced to more and more restrictions as my time went by. What the law books told me couldn’t be done was being done over and over as the fear of a sex crime grew. I still can’t believe so many restrictions have been added to a sentence I received in 1988. I still have nightmares as I visualize the number of pitfalls placed right in front of every step I take to help myself and others. The worst part is the restrictions aren’t helping the problem – their only purpose is to punish. I’ve had little chance to help in the way I know I can: Sharing what I know has helped me.
