It's unfair that after paying the debt they owe to society they have to register as sex offenders so they have no chance of being accepted back into society. Our judicial system has become vindictive , we have lost our way not only as a nation but as civilized human beings.....

@Shooter69... It is disgusting to know that someone would victimize a female or male. If they chose to do so, then let the entire state know where they are. It is a safety percussion to all families out there. It is our right to know who is a registered sex offender and for the courts to hide this is not right. I would not accept someone who demoralizes a human through a sexual act against there will.
