Reply To: Sex registries as modern-day witch pyres


I agree! Here in Missouri the lawmakers revised the criminal charge codes to be more lenient EXCEPT on sex offendes, of which they did the opposite. My husbands attorney accually told him it would have been better for him to have walked up, put a gun to someone’s head, and shot them in cold blood than to have a sex charge. The two guys that killed the RSO in Doniphan Missouri have been given a plea deal of 20 years right off the bat. They will most likely only get 5-10 in the end. Where as my husband was offered 30 years. His attorney got him a 15 year deal and told him he would most likely lose at trial because it is very rare that a man charged with a sex crime will actually win in Missouri.
