I have been really touched by all the Story’s and family tragedy’s I have read here! I think you are all brave for sharing your stories. I can relate to all of you and I can relate to the negatives! I was always on the other side looking in, until it happened to me!
I am from San Francisco, and 25 years ago, I was a San Francisco Police officer. And one night changed my life forever and in one hour of stupidity!
I am now a RSO! I have only myself to blame for being naive and stupid and now I pay the price.
Everybody is human and don’t ever forget that! I have a wife and five adult children, 4 being girls. Even though my case had to do with corruption, murder, gangs and extortion, the fact remains I am here now speaking to you. I use to be Pro law, until this happened to me.
A lot of the stories I have heard on this site are very similar. I know a lot of you were forced to take a deal or you were convicted of a crime from the Penal code that is not even close to what happened to you! The State Laws need to me modified or changed.
There are pedophiles and then there are Sex offenders! EG: A John is arrested for soliciting a prostitute or was caught in sexual activity and had to take a deal and have to register for life! A Pedophile is ? You know where I am going with that and I am sorry I do not condone Pedophiles what so ever! But, I do not believe a pedophile should be a target.
And those of you who were convicted of being with a 14 year old going on 25 and didn’t know better is just that! I won’t judge you! I see this every day going on. My own 16 year old daughter had a boyfriend 25! Of course I put a stop to it, I was protective but not mean! I wouldn’t wish this insanity on anybody!
There are People who believe in you! former district attorneys and retired judges.
All this being said, Keep your head up! you are not scum of the earth! I have a great support group and this is what gets me by!
If you need advice or want to talk, I am here to listen to you without judging and I will help you out as much as possible! Cheers!
