Does youthful mistake merit sex-offender status?

(CNN)Zachery Anderson was a 19-year-old college student with no criminal history when he met a teenage girl on the dating app “Hot or Not” and had sex with her in December. The girl, who admitted she lied about her age, turned out to be only 14, making their encounter a sexual crime. Despite statements from the girl and her mother begging the judge for leniency, Anderson was sentenced to 90 days in jail and five years on probation.

But that is the least of his problems. The liaison also landed him on the sex-offender registries in Indiana and Michigan for 25 years. Although the judge agreed Wednesday to consider Anderson’s request to be resentenced, there is no guarantee his name will be removed. Full Article

I have been emailing the following to every news list I can find a email to, pbs CNN, fox, Washington post, ect. Maybe it has an effect maybe not but can’t hurt anyone else feel free to copy and send all over this country. I really wish the media and any other organization would stop publishing, producing or relying on reports and opinions from law makers or any organizations about how great sex offender registration and notification laws work.

Hi mike r With all due respect, you are hitting on the wrong news/media outlets. That is to say you are going to the main stream outlets. Fact; 232 media executives control the information diet of 277 million Americans. Fact; that’s 1 media exec to 850,000 subscribers.
