Reply To: Vanderwall puts state on notice over new sex offender laws

David Beemer

Two people I once worked with became registered sex offenders. One drove from VA to FL to be with a 14 year old girl. The girl of course was a cop and he was arrested, posted bail and never served a day.

The other guy was supposed to meet a 14 year old boy in a park who also was a cop. He drove through a local park, never stopped, never even got within 100 yards of the “boy” but was pulled over, arrested, put in jail for about 18 months was found guilty and served 7 years of a 50 ish year sentence.

Keep in mind in both case the literally no victim.

Both were found guilty and both became registered sex offenders. They had to do the classes and were on probation for many years.

They are both incredibly intelligent men and enjoyed working for them both but of course as registered sex offenders neither of them could land a decent job again.

From the start I was 100% convinced they would NEVER doing anything like that again the reality is under our system they are effectively punished for life.

This isn’t right and something needs to change.
