Sex Offender Registration and the Internet
I read your article about sex offenders....I have to tell you i am on that list. In the state of Wisconsin I will be on it for the rest of my life. When I was 20 there was a girl that accused me of having sex with her. I will admit we messed around a bit but we never had sex. There was never any intecourse.
When i plead guilty ( bad attorney) there was no sex offender registration. If there was, I would have taken my chances and probably won with a jury. But I guess thats besides the point now. Now I get evicted from apartment, people vandalize my truck and I can't get a job in my chosen profession. And it's all because I'm all over the Internet. I'm 33 years old now, I did my time...but after the fact the state added a life sentence.
Thanks for listening. ill keep reading. Tom from Wisconsin
