I am a registered Sex offender. I was not convicted. I received 10yrs probation, however I received deferred adjudication yet I have to register for the rest of my life. I thought deferred adjudication mentioned all is dismissed after you meet all required by the court. How is this right and how can I get off the list?

If this internet nightmare is not getting out of hand one has to say enough is enough. A sex offender is just a label or should I just say “offender” and now they want those in TX to post an ad on the internet stating that they are a sex offender. No telling what human mankind will want next. They want to keep the sex offender in bondage the rest of there life. They set you up on adult sites when actually they should do there sting operations in teenage chat sites as that is who they are suppose to be protecting. There is only one reason an adult would go into a teenage chat room and that’s not to deliver the morning paper.
It all has to do with money and corrupt people that think they are saving some poor teenage gal that is nothing more than a “police decoy” that ensnares would be citizens’ into this game of blind man’s bluff. Sure I got caught up in it but like I told my probation officer .. it is what it is until it is what it aren’t Go get um people!

“Requiring that a person wear a scarlet letter when using any social networking would impose a significant restraint on his ability to communicate freely and anonymously on the Internet, and we believe that would clearly chill constitutionally protected speech.”
Ok, then tell Facebook to mind it’s own business and stop deleting profiles of people convicted of a sex offense when use of the internet is irrelevant since using public transportation is not off limits and IF a person WANTED to commit another sex crime against someone, all they need to do is walk down the street and FIND a victim. Use of the internet takes time with “grooming” and if parents cannot be parents and teach their underwear posting pre-teens to stop sending the wrong messages to onlookers, than perhaps the parents should be barred from having internet available in their precious little homes.
Also, if FaceBook will go out of their way to look someone up in order to make sure that user does not have asexual crime, why don’t they look up all the gang members on their site and delete them as a threat to public safety also?
Furthermore, dear full of crap corporate Facebook, a person does not have to be a registered sex offender with any previous criminal convictions to use ANY social media for the purposes of committing a crime they THINK they might get away with. Facebook, like society, thinks ONLY people who HAVE committed a crime will continue to do so. They FORGET that there was a time in that person’s life when there WAS NO CRIMINAL RECORD with the courts. So how about we take away any avenue where someone without a criminal record can find “victims” to have sex with by DELETING THE EXISTENCE OF FACEBOOK ENTIRELY? That’ll put an end to “social media dangers”. But they won’t DARE do that.
I firmly believe that a DAMN GOOD ATTORNEY can AT LEAST use that in their argument to the court (right in front of a FB representative) and see the LOOKS on their faces. Simply say: “Well, Mr “insert name of sued FB rep here” why don’t we just shut down Facebook entirely and that will not only put an end to existing sex offenders seeking out our young children, it will also stop future sex crimes from those who haven’t committed one yet or been caught yet. Since you are well aware that a person with a sex offense was not BORN with that offense. They had to commit the crime to get the record.”
Just to use that in an argument would make someone with half a brain in the court system go “hmmmmm”.

Facebook needs to be sued for dictating who can use their site which was originally meant for communication with close friends and family.
Besides, as we keep moving into the future, more and more huge organizations (even the truly important ones we all use every day) have moved themselves onto Facebook as a means of contact and business transactions.
No one, NO ONE, regardless of person history, should be DICTATED in a FREE COUNTRY that they cannot use a particular social media.
I will gladly join a class-action lawsuit against Facebook. But I doubt anyone (i.e. attorney) will even bother to take the chance even if all it does is make the point that ANYONE can become a sex offender (if they are not one already) by using ANY social media. So FB, get off the bullsh*t. You’re not protecting ANYONE.

Is there any effort being made to quash Texas HB 1064 that has moved out of the house committee and now scheduled to be voted on by the House.
It has a whole laundry list of where a registered SO cannot work, live, go in or near a 1,000 foot radius of. Way too many to list and unbelievable. It even includes a public library. It’s so over the top, it will become the most restrictive I have ever read about in the U.S.
They gathered up all the Japanese during World War II and said that was legal. Guess its only a matter of time.

Ok, I found on a separate area of this website that RSOl is trying to educate the senate on this idiotic bill.

There is more than that dealing with the constitutionality in TX. The 7 days before and after to register, and DPS yearly licensing rules can interfere with that allowed time. The license cost and fines are punitive. Appointments to register are now being required. It is no longer convenient and non-punitive. The State has turned it into a trap.
