Reply To: Caring for a registrant can be fatal

Marie Shook

I fear for my son’s life when he is released from incarceration due to public and society characterization of what a sexual offender is. He looked at porn, did not store it or produce it, and got sentenced to 7 years in FCI. Next he has to register as a SO for 25 years. He was not a molester and never touched a child and yet pays the price and will pay the price upon release. I am very much afraid of the public registrar and feel it is a continuing punishment.
