Keep Trying

By Steven . . . I see so many stories here that are full of despair. People that have given up hope, or feel like their life can’t be worthwhile because of their status as a sex offender. “I cannot get a job because of my status as a registered sex offender, the registry is terrible and unconstitutional, the cops/sheriff/legislature is out to get me, etc. I get it. I really do. I am on the registry too, and no matter what your complaint about the registry, I most likely agree with it. It needs to end. But until it does, at some point you have to realize you are where you are. You can’t snap your fingers and change your situation. So how do you get on with life the best you can? Can you still have a good, fulfilling life, regardless of what happens with the registry? Of course you can. I don’t mean in any way to…

Removed after filing a habeas corpus

After 13 years on the registry of a 25 year sentence to the SOR Michigan by Oakland county trial court, I filed a lawsuit last July and a habeas corpus to the trial court Dec 18th, 2023 and the head county attorney emailed saying I was removed. ( and I am !)No relief yet on getting all the bogus convictions and VOID JUDGMENT removed but I expect it if they honor Michigan laws and jury instructions instead of the fraud filed by the AG..Any sting Op w/o a victim is bogus.Any home raid w/o an in person crime is bogus.Commercial activity is required in most valid prosecutions — monetary gains required using an underage real victim.Speak against your charges if you were arrested and no victim or in person crime/s occurred.File a habeas corpus after understanding this.Study the laws and jury instructions.

Unforgiven

By Michael . . . At 16 years old and full of hormones introduce another developing teenager into a situation where there is no one to stop either from their emotions or attractions. Yes you can deny it but the developed physical characteristics of a female have and probably always will have the attention of any young man. If the female in question is not deterred by what is appropriate or not and personal boundaries aren’t thought about then there is serious danger for both but more so for the young man. I made that mistake. It could st me two different prison sentences and some severe emotional distress from the so called therapist. Break the word therapist down as it was a compound word and that’s a more accurate description. Unwanted probing and forced suggestions are the same as any other unwanted attention isn’t it? Bottom line is I was wrong and did my time. Then the registry after…

Thrown under the Bus

By Sonya . . . Our story began in 2013 but has taken a turn for the worse in 2021. We are in California, and my fiancé was charged with an Indecent Exposure charge that did not involve children and was a non contact/ non violent/ serious offense. He was never publicly listed on Megan’s Law prior to the new Tiered Registry. His offense is still a Tier 1, which we thought he would now be able to petition to get off the registry. However, due to bad choices in the past (drug related), he was given a high risk score, which placed him in Tier 3. So, now, because of old offenses, he is now listed publicly for the first time ever. He has not re-offended since 2013 and had his Indecent Exposure expunged. We can easily get the old drug offenses expunged since they were misdemeanors, but that would be costly. Those offenses are well beyond 7 years…

Gun Rights and Registration Vulnerabilities

By J . . The issue of constitutional gun rights is a complex and highly debated topic in society, often highlighting the importance of balancing personal freedoms with public safety. However, when it comes to registered sex offenders, the loss of constitutional gun rights can place them in potentially dangerous situations. This article aims to explore the unique challenges faced by registered sex offenders who are unable to exercise their Second Amendment rights due to a felony sexual crime and the public disclosure of their address, despite not having committed any firearm-related offenses.

Catch 22

By Randy . . . I was arrested in 2008 for masturbating in my car near a group of people aged 15-22. I had no intention of being seen and remained in my car with a “towel” covering me. Believe me or not I did not think anyone standing out there was “underage”. They were all dressed as “heavy goth”. No judgement, just heavy makeup. One of them called the police because they “suspected” I was doing something. Police picked me up a mile down road and I confessed to what I was doing in the car. I was cited with Disorderly Conduct. It was embarrassing and humbling. My wife picked me up at the station and the arresting officer (very nice gentlemen) told my wife the “kids” who called on me were well known by police. He also said if I hadn’t confessed there would be no case as nothing was ever “seen” or confirmed but only suspected. I…
