'True Life: I'm A Sex Offender' premieres Wednesday, January 18 at 10/9c.
my best friend is on the list cause she kissed her boyfriend when she was 18 and he was 16 and his parents pressed charges.
my lawyers name is jason cobb.
Here's a novel idea, how about we NOT PROSECUTE these kinds of cases. So did you have sex before marriage or were you that perfect little saint that just waited and waited till at 21 you got married after a background/DNA check was performed? Somehow I doubt it.
John Walsh was in College when he nailed is now wifey Reve, who was only 16. Not to mention he brags about sneaking out of girl's windows. He's quite the perv.
You are right when you say there are consequences for their actions. That's what the sentence they receive for their crime is for. What happens to RSOs after they complete their sentences -- all the restrictions and being on a public database -- doesn't happen for anyone convicted of any other type of crime. Only sex offenders. Once someone's sentence is served they should no longer be held to further restrictions that change and get added to every year, period.
i actually know one of the dudes on this episode and what he did to the girl. Let's just say he realllllly ******* deserves to be on that list.
No wonder they couldn't find Garrido .so many on the registry that don't belong there, that bloated it. These laws are so unjust, so extreme. But the self-righteous, hateful, off with their 's fanatics want to bring back Salem. I hope more rational minds will prevail. The registry is ruining people's lives who do NOT deserve it. Right now there are so many non-dangerous people on there. Some have been murdered,imprisoned or killed themselves. I guess the fanatics are happy about that. "
i am so happy for you, Terry.
what city is your lawyer located in?
Does anyone by chance know the lawyers name that helped these boys ??? I would love to get ahold of him and see if he can practice in Iowa my daughter is in a horrible situation and needs help if anyone knows please let me know thanks
For your information, I am a 26-year old woman who knows the difference between right and wrong. At 14, 15 and 16 I would expect my parents to intervene. Who is to blame for their destroyed lives? Is it the girs (they are certainly not women), their parents, or maybe it them. Who should they pawn what they did off to?
I guess until you or one of your loved ones lands on the list you'll continue to say this. It is people like you responsible for these destroyed lives.
And Terry obviously didn't learn after the first arrest. Not only did he have "consensual sex" with a 16 year old girl. Her parents didn't approve of the relationship so they did what any good parent does, they intervened. The nest time around he goes younger and has sex with a 14 year old girl. He doesn't feel like he should be on the sex offender list. Really? Even of of his friends said that none of this would have happened had he kept it in his pants.
I'm sitting here watching this episode and I can't find an ounce of sympathy for either of them. Whether you like it or not, there are rules for this sort of thing and then consequences for your actions if you so choose to go against these laws. When Justin says," I know what I did was wrong...but I don't deserve what is being done to me," that completely negates everything he said after but. What was he doing with a 15 year old girl? Yeah so what they were together for a year and a half.
On my site is a page called "You might be a sex offender if." It will shock you. Did you know there is a 9 year old on Delaware's registry? Or that Texas has over 4000 juveniles on the list, some as young as age 10.
I know a man who's a really good guy who's on the registry for kissing a 16yo when he was 18. Seriously, how many other people must be on it for the same thing. I've never age checked all the girls I've kissed, I'm lucky I'm not on it.
People simply do not realize that you don't have to be a ****** or child molester to land on the registry. The registry should be abolished because it is a social death sentence. Trying to get a place to live or work is all but impossible, you live in fear of your life because vigilante justice is allowed, and there are always new laws targeting you. There is no hope of life after your sentence is complete. That needs to change. Society needs to quit drinking the media kool-aid & learn the truth
I have been charged with an indecent assault, 'm not a Sex offender but yet I get treated as if I am when seeking employment.. Because when an employer does a background check they see everything the System was trying to charge me with and they judge me not on my charge alone,but on everything . So it does not matter the facts of the case or the situation, once they label you, your life is ruined. and it's not right and the laws need to be changed so people can have a chance to live normal
Even if the show focuses on "Romeo & Juliet" relationships & not on "real" sex offenders, it doesn't matter. The restrictions are the same for those who were arrested for being in consensual relationships as they are for violent, repeat offenders or child molesters. I hope it shows what life is like for these young people once labeled a "sex offender" & how many restrictions they have, how difficult it is to stay compliant due to all the crazy laws & how many have lost hope for their futures.
thanks brit and michelle
i 100% agree with Michelle. Not everyone that gets labeled as a sex offender is a dangerous person and just because they get labeled as one thing, doesn't always mean that they raped someone or that they molested a child. There are TONS of things that can happen to someone in order to get labeled, and being treated badly because of a label is not cool
