IN: Life parole lacks active monitoring

Earlier this year, 33-year-old ____ ____. was charged with molesting four local children. He recently agreed to plead guilty and to disclose details about even more victims.

The Mishawaka man admitted to similar incidents before, in two other Indiana counties. He left prison in 2010, and as a sex offender on parole, he was subject to strict rules including no alcohol, drugs or pornography. He couldn’t be around children or change addresses without permission.

That period of parole supervision, which included frequent contact with a parole officer and the possibility of drug testing, computer searches and polygraphs, lasted a little more than a year. After that — in July 2011 — ____ was placed on lifetime parole as a sexually violent offender. Full Article

    “If you’re a sex offender, you’re never gonna change,” he said. “You’re going to be a sex offender all your life.”

    “Somebody’s gotta do it,” Oakley said of the satisfaction he still derives from the job. “Every day I get up, ’m making a difference.”

    Waiter! Check please! Oh, and Taxi for Oakley and his drinking buddy Steele. Think they’ve had a little too much and are fantasizing about being superheroes.

      Nahh , letem drink and drive. I’m sure there a family of 6 they can plow into, but then again it really doesn’t matter. Look at the pilot of the hot air balloon that crashed and killed 16, he had 4 DUIs in 10 years.
      Houston, we have a problem.

    “Oakley, who has monitored the county’s sex offender registry for nearly 10 years, says his work with molesters has convinced him that most of them will offend again. Of the county’s 367 offenders registered, he estimates about 98 percent are “worrisome” as possible re-offenders.”

    How many of the 367 have actually be convicted of a new offense during your tenure. Another example of lazy reporting just citing anecdotal opinions. Isn’t that how this whole witch hunt started “I like to say that…”

      “If you’re a sex offender, you’re never gonna change,” he said. “You’re going to be a sex offender all your life.” and yet more of the same later in the article!

      Yet Oakley, who along with a partner spends most of his days knocking on doors, knows there’s not enough manpower or money to go around. “Sex offenders aren’t pillars of the community. They don’t stay in one spot very long,” he said of keeping tabs on them, adding that two or three on our list now are living under bridges.”

      Well gee, maybe if the legislatures didn’t make it impossible to find a place to live because of proximity restrictions, or if their employers weren’t hounded into firing every registered citizen they hired! Legislation and societal persecution make it impossible to live a stable life and then you turn around and use the instability as an indictment on the characters of the registered citizens. Didn’t Dante describe a special circle of hell for public officials like that? If not, he should have!!!

      • Erwin

        Dante’s Inferno described different rings of hell. Sharon Runner is probably in the ring that decides what to do with dead souls. Perpetual punishment would be too good for her. They have to think of a worst punishment

  3. Erwin

    The detective says he’s rankled by too short of sentences for sex crimes like child molestation. Okay….the guy got 30 months in a plea deal. But is the detective equally upset by defendants like my son with no record getting 36 months in prison just for downloading a picture? And no contact or communication was involved? So sorry detective. I don’t feel you. Like I mentioned before on this forum, the so called light punishments balance out the harsh out of whack punishments prosecutors and DETECTIVES……yes you detectives often push for
