Much like there are support groups for alcoholics or drug abusers, one in Saskatoon is helping sex offenders. Meaghan Craig looks at its importance.
As first reported by Global News, convicted sex offender ______ now has a new alias.
In the last two months, the soon-to-be 30-year-old has taken the steps to legally change his name to ______ and mask his true identity to members of the public.
This on the heels of long-term offender ______ arrest in late April, who was going by the name ______ , and was charged with numerous child porn-related offences.
Both cases have been met with public outrage after learning just how easy it is for convicted child sex offenders to legally change their names in Saskatchewan.
As long as a person is 18 years old, lives in the province, and is entitled to reside in Saskatchewan, an individual is eligible to legally change their name with eHealth Saskatchewan.
Some, however, would argue that these offenders should get a second shot at life and shed the stigma of their crime if they’ve already served time.
