Failure-to-Comply Arrests Reveal Flaws in Sex Offender Registries

In one Pennsylvania county, more than three times as many people on the registry were charged in 2016 with failing to follow registry requirements than were charged with a new sexual offense. Full Article

    My immediate response is: “Of course! Duh!” Registrants have many, many ever-changing requirements that must be followed to the letter. And, as we all know, the recidivism rate for new sexual offenses is extremely low. So I am only surprised that arrests for FDRs are not something like 10 TIMES GREATER than arrests for new sexual offenses.

  2. Eric

    A study conducted of sexual crimes in New York by Jeffrey Sandler, Kelly Socia, and Naomi Freeman in 2008 found more than 95 percent of registerable sexual offenses and more than 94 percent of sexual offenses against children in the state are committed by first-time offenders. The researchers reviewed more than 170,000 charged sexual offenses in the state between 1986 and 2006.

    This is an outstanding article and that statement pretty much sum it all up. The registry is a fraud. Meanwhile drug dealers have a 70% recidivism rate and gang members over 90%, but they are just people who need a second, or third chance to get it right.

      Yep, and we have to always keep in mind that the Registries don’t help hinder crimes anyway. It doesn’t matter if the Registries exist or not. Anyone who is listed on one and wants to do something illegal WILL find a way to do it. And from what I’ve seen directly in hundreds of cases over the past couple of decades, that is completely trivial to do.

    The guy gets 21 years of probation for moving out of his house, yeah, but that isn’t excessive punishment.

    Yea I have noticed a few times over the years where somethings have changed and I was like really, how are they allowed to just keep on adding and changing adding and changing, they do it so you will end up failing to comply.


      I would be willing to wager that the SO laws are the greater of all offender laws that have changed the most. It shows the political biased and motivations. If only this can be shown somehow? (Sarcasm) Look, any good news is good in this world.

      They change so frequently because of that never-ending quest to save just one child.

    This is nuts! Why didn’t they just execute him! OMG! This is crazy.

    Of course it would be an Unheard of news/articles site that would write a truthful article.

    Could people living in PA send this to the new stations to get picked up?

    I know this goes against their agenda of fear mongering, but maybe someone will report on it.

    • ACT 10 - SORNA - DONE!

      The writer of this article is a very well know author, Joshua Vaughn is one the best writers and will always against the registry. He wanted to an article on me, and my attorney at the time during a failure to register charge prior to MUNIZ, he wanted my insite and my feelings on the registry, but at the time I was looking at 5 to 10 years for a failure to register. But that was all dropped because of MUNIZ. Thank God. But the author is great writer. HE knows his stuff!

    Yea I think the news station just like to fuel the hatred honestly, I think if someone sent them a story of how things really work they would pick it apart and find all the negative, but I could be wrong, maybe someone with some pull could put their feelers out there and see where it may go.

    It’s high time for government officials to be arrested for Failure to Comply with recent court decisions. But oh no, the courts can rule in our favor all they want, and they can drag their feet and are untouchable!

    I call BULLSH**!!!!!
