I am a 37 year old former school teacher that spent 12 years of a career protecting kids. I was revered as a great teacher and community leader. That was before I got caught up in a conversation online with the police posing as a 36 year old woman who had a 15 year old daughter.
My unfortunate intent was to have an affair on my lovely wife. I was going through a time of depression and some drinking, and got involved in this conversation with the intent of meeting the woman. The police played a back and forth game of “who is on the other end of the line” by acting the daughter at times and acting the mother at times… needless to say this turned into a nightmare that has DESTROYED my life! I didn’t get any prison time, just probation, yet I have the hell of registering for 15 years!
My wife has stayed with me and we are doing well, but I am unable to find employment to help support my family. All I want to do is get my life back together and put my degrees and skills to good use to help better my community and family. Is there any help out there? Does anyone hire people on the registry? I am even scared to be posting this in fear of being accused of violating something to do with the registry…I don’t know.
I am so glad to find this site. Please help!
