MO: My Son, the Sex Offender: One Mother’s Mission to Fight the Law

In the run up to Halloween one year, Sharie Keil saw something that really made her jump: Missouri governor Jay Nixon, then the attorney general.

He was on television to announce that registered sex offenders were hereby banned from participating in her favorite holiday. On threat of a year in jail, they had to stay inside and display a sign saying they had no candy. The goal was “to protect our children,” as Nixon put it, but Keil heard only a peal of political hysteria. Full Article

    I saw this article this morning and that’s how I learned about RSOL and eventually found this site today. I found the article hopeful as I had no idea there were actually people out there willing to stand up against the registry laws. It’s hard. Thank you to all of you who are part of these efforts!

    Anyone know of any RSOL groups in Southern California?

      Hi E:

      Keep watching this site. On the first page you will see the next meeting announced. CA-RSOL meeting’s are held all over the state, usually every other month in places like L.A., San Diego, Fresno, Bakersfield, etc. Count your self fortunate, you have stumbled upon CA-RSOL, possibly the most active and powerful chapter of RSOL National. I found this site in a similar manner and count my self lucky I did. Bookmark this site and join the conversations. You will learn allot of valuable information, and go to the next CA-RSOL meeting in your area. You said Southern California, so I assume you live in or near L.A. Or San Diego. Hope to see you at one of the meetings, and welcome 🙂

      Eventually, I heard one goal is to have some local chapters. I wouldn’t mind if we had one in So Cal. I’d like to go to more meetings, but the distance limits that. Any other people who fall onto this site, give a dollar or 10, so that they — we — can have more resources to act locally.

        Hi Tim:

        I too, wish there were more meetings, but am OK with going to L.A. from Palm Springs every other month or so. It would ne nice to see sub chapters that met every week to strategise and to give officials, cities and towns grief. Public education could be another activity the group could do. I know one other registrant where I live, but he doesn’t know that I know.

    Haha, E, you’re looking at it. Welcome! CA RSOL is the RSOL affilate for RSOL National. This is a very active, dynamic group, led by Janice Bellucci to bring some sense and fairness to California. Glad you found us.

      Dave…how are the Philippines for those of us who register here? My wife is from there and we haven’t been there in years, not sure how they would or wouldn’t welcome me…

      • David Bradford

        td777, I’m honestly not sure. I live in Albay province, Bicol Region. I moved OUT of the US to live in Asia in 2007, from Santa Rosa, Sonoma County up north. I de-registered with the SRPD, and that was it. Had a passport already, and moved to Kong Kong for 11 months in 2007, then moved to the Philippines in 2008. I’ve never had to reveal anything about my past, never had any problems coming and going on u-turns (yet). I’m married to a Filipina, so I just have to renew my visa every two months, and then go out of the country, usually to HK, just to get my passport stamped. Don’t have the extra money to get a resident alien card. I’ve never been back to the US since.

        In 2015, it’ll be 10 years from my parole ending, and that’s when my passport expires. Looking to see what Janice and CA RSOL can pull out of the hat soon. I will tell you this, I’m unable to work abroad, as my ‘history’ shows up in the database employers use for background checks. Also, I WAS extremely low level, not even appearing on the Meagan’s Law site, but I had to register once a year back then, and I got hit with a compliance check. One of the reasons I moved abroad. Hope this helps you out.

    This is a good article and I salute Shari keli. Her’s is a powerful story and the fact that it’s on such a lame stream site is encouraging. The article says her organization is loosely organized under RSOL and called our victories a “steady patter” of legal victories; apparently the author hasn’t heard of Janice Bellucci and the SMASHING VICTORIES we have experienced here in California and are being blessed with because of her efforts, one step at a time. I feel I must also mention everyone that assists her and every one that has taken up the cause, like Frank and Chance.

    There’s allot of truth in what Shari Keli say’s; heck! It’s all true and all of what she says is true for adult registrant’s too. I just wish she would tailor her strategy to be against the registry period, not just juvenile’s on the registry. She says “we need to forget everything we think we know about sex offenders, because 20 years research has shown us it’s all pretty much wrong.” This is so true and I wish America would wake up! Elizabeth Letourneau PhD director of the center for the prevention of child abuse At John Hopkins calls these policies a “failed policy.” It seems more and more people from reputable agencies are speaking out against the registry. The tide is indeed turning. 🙂

    This article is AWESOME!!! I’ve personally met with Sharie. She is the real deal. She’s a strong, strong person, and I KNOW she will not let the actions of Missouri Governor Jay “Fascist Scumbag” Nixon slow her down let alone stop her. I’m beyond shocked (in a GOOD way) that an article this good could come from NBC. Maybe low ratings can cause change for the better. God speed, Sharie!!!!

    Can someone please tell me the registration requirements for Missouri. I would like to fly to St. Louis and watch my favorite team (the Rams) and stay 2-3 days. Would I have to register to do this?
