Eighteen years I was married to a prescription drug abusive woman who had 2 female children from a previous marriage, and was in a battle for full custody. On many occasions she would be passed out leaving the children then 2, and 4 to fend for themselves. When I came home for work on those occasions where she was passed out I would feed, bathe, and get ready for bed the children.
Her ex accused me of fondling the children. I admitted to washing their private parts with a wash clothe, and was soon charged and convicted of a lewd act on a minor. My attorney was a public defender and was new on the job.
Since my release from parole over 15 years ago I have been physically, emotionally, and verbally abused because of my being on the registration website. I have been denied the ability to have a relationship, gain employment, and exercise my constitutional rights.
I had never had a run in with the law, nor have I had one since. How can the website be justified when it is used to gain information in order to inflict mischief on others lives? How are the current lifetime registration laws beneficial to anyone other than identifying repeat offenders?
