I am 60-years-old and my son is 36. In 2005, he was convicted of indecent liberties with a minor. She was his girlfriend (unknown to me). As the records clerk for our local Sheriff’s Office, I had to fingerprint him, take his picture, and place him on the NC sex offender registry. He got probation, but he and this girl just couldn’t stay away from each other- they wanted to marry in 3 months when she turned 16. Thirteen years later, my son is married and has an 8-year-old son. Everyone hates my son. Can’t afford a lawyer to petition to get off registry. Dying here…… – Theresa
I would just like you all to read this petition and decide if you want to support it. I was a young guy, had consensual sex with girls who couldn’t consent shortly after high school. I have worked with these girls in different buildings and one of them just wants to move on and not let it be the focus of her life. The other is willing to help me. They knew it was consensual. We weren’t drunk. We just hooked up and it was 2005. I was convicted in 2006. I have never re-offended, and I won’t. I just need some moral support because even with a religious upbringing my mother doesn’t even want to revisit it. She won’t even help me contact legal help. I was supposed to be off by the age of 45, but now I am placed in a tier 3 which I didn’t agree to, they just told me have way through my sentence….
