Reply To: Hindrances to successful sex offender re-entry



It has been a long and winding road for me. True as it may stand I did commit a crime with an older women than me. I paid my dues in prison. Never, not once, did I get in trouble in the 8 years I was there. If I had a choice, I’d rather be back there. I’ve been out 27 years. Never in trouble, not once. I have done all they’ve asked me to do, but it seems every year a new law is added and more restrictions are added. Now, here in San Antonio, a law just took effect 3-1-2014. It says I am not allowed in any city park. WOW!!! It’s crazy. I held a job for 15 years by lying, saying I did not have one. But once they found out and contacted my employer, I was fired the next day . I hurt every day for what I have done. There is not a night that I don’t pay for here and the wrong that I did. I am haunted by it. People don’t understand. We do have feelings and are humans. Let him who has not sin throw the first stone!
