So much information missing here. I can only guess that she willfully placed a child in danger of being molested by someone considered as a dangerous sex offender.
There’s a right way to do things and a wrong way. Perhaps she chose the wrong way?

We all know that these laws violate ex post facto punishment protections. Now they are pulling peripheral crimes into the net. Sex sells. Crime sells. Sex & Crime is a blockbuster for all politicos left, right and center!

That fills in loads for the 10% satisfaction rating on doing the job of actually running the government.

AS, ***no name calling, please – Moderator***
If this women was young and pretty, she would have never been charged.
But because she is older and poor, she is ripe for their pickings.
I do agree that the article doesn’t state clearly what exactly she did, however, in my opinion, she doesn’t seem to qualify to be listed on the hit list, along with thousands of others.

The article says

“Four years ago, Balogh was convicted of interference with custody of children. That crime falls under the newest version of Megan’s Law, and Balogh must register as a real sex offender.”

She goes on to say

““Seventeen years of probation for not doing anything but trying to help a little boy that was in diaper and just a pair of socks?” Balogh questioned the ramifications.”

Perhaps she tried to keep a child from a mother that was not entirely prepared or able to care for the child and the mother brought in the police.

The most disturbing part of the article is the words “newest version of Megan’s Law”. I have not heard anything about a new version of this! I must conclude that “megans law” is so valuable to the politicians and police, as well as the prison industrial complex that they are modifying it to expand and include other “crimes” that are not of a sexual nature, just as they did with pictures and depictions; I believe this includes writings also, although I could be mistaken, but I don’t think so.

Truly; I wish R.S.O.L. had a few wealthy benefactors that would allow the fight against this lunacy to be ramped up a few notches. I think it is totally insane that these people in power can apparently make something so just because they say it is. This is nothing less than turning truth into lies and lies into truth. It’s depressing to have to acknowledge that most of America and the world, for that matter, does not seem to have the ability to differentiate the true from the false in these peoples/politicians statements, and the rest are apathetic. part of me is ashamed to admit that I fell into the apathetic category until my life was directly affected by the injustices facilitated by these laws; the other part of me is grateful that being placed on the registry has made me aware of the dishonesty that has thoroughly infected this society, which has compelled me to do my bit to change this, small as it is; I believe every little bit helps. I would prefer to escape from the U.S.A. But I cannot, so I will continue to fight and educate myself. And anyone reading this would be remiss to forget that knowledge is power. We must arm ourselves with the facts if we are to protect ourselves.

This is what happens when you have slippery slopes. Eventually people slip and slide down them!!!!!
Sadly, we’re going to see more and more crap like this. But, maybe this will be what it takes for people to WAKE UP!!!!!

So this guy here used to be the poster child for this sort of thing.

I was never really sure whether or not to believe this story. Looks like he is not the only one.
