I am classified now as a Recidivist here in NC, even though I was sentenced to register as a Sexual Offender and did so for seven years, then they changed my classification. Long story I won’t go into but nevertheless I now register in person 4 times a year, and am on the registry for life, until I can get the definition of “recidivist” changed, by the NC Legislature. I am presently working on that. I am visited in person at my house—maybe once a year if that ! Seems they know I am abiding by the law and not a threat, so they don’t waste their time. They have always been professional and courteous. almost to the point of apologetic for bothering me. But yes, it is still a hassle for sure, and in my opinion, a waste of our tax dollars.
