Sex Offender Registration Archives

SCOTUS looks at softening laws shunning registered sex offenders

There is a widely held view that once a sex offender, always a sex offender. This can lead to legal shunning because many convictions obtained for alleged sex offense crimes involve young victims. Whether you live in Florida or some other state, that demographic represents the most vulnerable in society.

US DOJ: Sex offenders have low recidivism rates

There is a misconception out there that people who are registered sex offenders are extremely likely to commit a crime again. This recidivism rate has been touted to be as high as 80 percent. In fact, the Supreme Court of the United States cited this statistic in a 2002 case that involved the many restrictions placed on sex offenders.

Reform for sex offender registration is slow

Registering as a sex offender isn't just embarrassing and punishing, it also leaves the individual with little room to make improvements to his or her life. This isn't a topic that many people like to discuss because the matter of sexually-based crimes are inherently unsavory and tough to talk about. It is easier in many people's minds to just label people who are convicted of sex crimes as horrible and then never consider them again.

Sex offenders can't catch a break (or a Pokémon)

We have discussed the various strict and often life-altering restrictions placed on registered sex offenders numerous times on this blog, but it is worth repeating. A person convicted of a sex crime who is required to register as a sex offender will have to comply with a whole host of restrictions, from where they can live to what they can do online.

'Sexting epidemic' putting young people's futures at risk

Imagine yourself in middle school or high school. Remember the mistakes you made, the hefty weight of peer pressure and the relationships you were navigating for the first time. Now imagine the decisions you made back then weren't left in the past: they were defining you today.

The perception of imbalanced justice

Over the last weekend, a story of sexual assault and criminal sentencing made national headlines. The case involved two people: the man found guilty of multiple felonies after a sexual assault and the victim, who was not identified. The story left people all across the country sharply divided.

Going home: It's not that easy for convicted sex offenders

If you are convicted of a crime, you will have to comply with the terms of the resulting sentence. This could include community service, restitution and imprisonment. Once you have fulfilled these conditions, the expectation is that you should be able to move on and try to put that experience behind you.

Freedom granted to Florida man, full pardon up next

A conviction for a sex crime can destroy a person's life. Beside the stigma that comes with this type of offense, many people will also spend at least some amount of time in prison. In some cases, the harsh penalties that come as a result of a conviction are in line with the offense and the sentencing guidelines in place.

Is a sex offender the same as a sexual predator?

People who are convicted of crimes stemming from sexual misconduct can often get lumped into one category by members of the public: dangerous people who prey on young children. However, the fact is that not every case leading to conviction involves children or a person who is a serious threat to others.
