I’m a convicted 290 registrant. I was released from prison after serving 100% of a 3 year sentence. No good time. I’ve been on parole for 18 months and during that time I have been returned to custody on 12 separate occasions for non-criminal conduct. I’ve been held to a higher legal standard than the average citizen which has caused my re-incarceration for conduct such as entering a park or having a girlfriend with kids, all of which has no relation to criminal activity. I took the 3 year deal thinking I’d do my time and have a chance to start over again. I had no idea I’d be subject to re-incarceration for the next 7 years. I served my time … Get rid of parole and give guys like me a fair chance to start over again.
