      Dennis,

      Do the “progressive” churches in Ohio have policies with regards to allowing RSO’s to attend church or services? Do they have “adult only” services? I am very curious. As you know, many churches (whether progressive or not) deny RSO’s from worshiping. Even Jewish Synagogues have behaved shamefully in turning people away. Thank you for the work that you do, Dennis.

      Some of the churches, including mine, the United Methodist Church, allow RSO’s to attend with a ‘Sponsor’ who accompanies them to church, and stays with them where ever they are in church. This meets concerns of members for their children and allows the RSO to take part in church activities. Not all churches do this how ever

      I believe the residency laws need to be changed. My family has lived near a school for 27 years. My son was convicted of a sex offender crime over a year ago. At the time he lived with us. Without going into all of the details – where he lived at the time had nothing to do with what happened. Homelessness of convicted offenders makes their rehabilitation more difficult. He was told by his probation officer if he registered as homeless it would be a probation violation and he would go to prison. He cant find a decent job and has no place to live. Its almost like the current system encourages offenders to lie about where they live and take their chances on getting caught because that is better than freezing to death living on the street.

      I’m writing on behalf of my friend. He has read your post, is currently incarcerated, and is interested in writing or speaking with you about reforms and the work that you are currently involved with. The email address is justfusselman@gmail.com and I can help in making sure that you get his contact information and would then be able to correspond with him if you are able and willing to do so. Thank you for your time!
