Reply To: Once a sex offender always a sex offender — even beyond death?

Angie Hampton

My son has Aspergers and was convicted last year of possession of child pornography.
My son is an amazing person. He’s extremely intelligent, full of heart, hard worker. But lacks the ability to understand social areas of his life. Thats just one issue.
Before my son was charged with this crime I was an ignorant, uneducated member of society. I thought everyone who was on the registry deserved to be without knowing the details or their background.
I am no longer a member of that society.
Being put in this situation has made me open my eyes, my mind and my heart. I can no longer judge another and advocate for reform.
Because no one knows the real story behind the person.
