      That’s exactly why nothing will ever be done to change these laws because no one wants to defend someone who has been branded with the SO scarlet letters. It’s unconstitutional and ruining lives faster than I can type this message. I know first hand of someone who had consensual sex when he was young with his girlfriend and didn’t register on time was sent to prison and his status was upgraded from a one to a three simply because he didn’t register, misleading the public with the notices that he is a predator. He’s faced threats on his life, eviction from his home (when again puts him at risk for non registry because he has no address) this is terrible what the government is legally getting away with.

      Tamara with the law nobody win’s. They have a lock on all of it and they are ordained by God to do these criminal things. Its as if they are more of an Authority than the one that said thy shall not sin. When they sin…. set up these sex sting operations.. breaks God’s law and its perfectly ok since God gave them authority. So actually the sex offender holds’ the label for the rest of their life, that is a sad form of grace. But Governments won’t back down no matter what. I guess the best thing is to ge4t over it but it shame’s one and government doesn’t care. Seems like they have the right to do anything they want even entice and degrade others.

      My husband was accused of possession of a few files of what they considered CP….. He got tired of the court dates, lies the lawyers fed him and got bullied into a plea…. He took all the necessary assessments, ordered by court and was told he would be booked as a sex offender for 10 years. Once he went to PD for registration they booked him as a preditor for life!!!!! I want to scream so loud about this horrid injustice but I am simply out of breath, unable to fight anymore! The courts are mocking us, the system is degrading us, destroying forever. And with a SO identifier it even becomes impossible to immigrate to another country once the probation is done! The registrants remain prisoners in their own country, have to PAY for humiliation $100 annually to be on the registry because someone said this is the way! What if they have no money, house or job? Do they seek them out and throw them in jail because they are unable to find housing or employment to pay to be harassed and endangered? I can’t believe noone had appealed to that!!!! Or does that mean that noone cares???
