Reply To: Sexual offense laws: What does the future hold?

And after you serve your prison sentence for murder and are released, you will not be on any registry. You will be free to live where you wish, to stroll in any park, to go in any school where you have business. And we would fight for those rights for you, just as we fight for them for those who have served sentences for a sexual offense.

And of course the idea that being on the registry assures that one will not repeat his offense is blatantly untrue. The registry does nothing but make it difficult, sometimes impossible, for those who have every intention of never reoffending to make a life. For those who either cannot or will not alter their behavior, a very small minority, the registry does nothing to prevent reoffense.
