In 1997 I met a dude on line who had a porn site called glimmer.net. He was offering a CD-Rom disc that had underage nude boys on it. I ordered it and received it about two weeks later and nothing happened. In the fall of 1998 I received another solicitation from him for another disc with the same type stuff on it. At the time I didn’t have the money to buy it so I waited until march of 1999 to order it. 3 1/2 months later I got a pink slip from the post office saying I had a package ready to be picked up, so I went to the post office but they told me it wasn’t there. They said that it was being delivered to my house. I went back home and about an hour later they brought the package. About 4 minutes after I took the package in the house the feds came and busted down my door. I was arrested and taken to jail where I stayed 8 months. In 2000 I went to be sentenced and I happen to get Judge Lacy H Thornburg. It was also an election year and when my lawyer presented his arguements Thornburg struck everyone of them down. I wound up getting 7 years in federal prison but only did 4 years and 3 months. I was released in 2003 and registered 2 days later. I was registered as a non-violent offender and could get off automaticlly after 10 years but when they passed jessica’s law that screwed that up for me (and other sex offenders,) so now it’s been almost 13 years. I have not been able to find a job because of the registry. My mom has to pay my bills and buy my gas etc. and it’s frustrating and embarassing. In 2012 I took a truck driving class and got my class A CDL that is turning out to be worthless. I have put in plenty of applications but to no avail and have given up on finding a job. I agree that they need to reform the sex offender laws. I wish they would amend jessica’s law so that sex offenders who registered before that law passed could still get off automatically and the ones who were registered after that law passed would have to petition the court or judge. The only thing about going to court to try to get off is that if they don’t let you off you are on it for life and if you don’t try to get off you are on it for life so it’s kind of damned if you do damned if you don’t scenario.
