Emotional Support Group Meetings

Emotional Support Group phone conference meetings:

These are not the same as monthly ACSOL phone conference meetings. They provide registrants and their loved ones with an opportunity to discuss personal challenges and share their experiences, strengths and hopes, with each other. They are held for those convicted of a sex offense and their loved ones. They are based upon the format of 12 Step meetings.

There are TWO phone Emotional Support Group phone conference meetings per month.

If you want to attend the conference calls then email your name, phone, and the best times to call you to Alex (the group leader) at

The reason for this is that Alex wants to talk with you to ensure we don’t get inappropriate callers. This is for the group’s protection.

Once Alex approves you he will regularly email you the date and time of the next phone meeting and how to call in.

Attendance is limited to individuals required to register, family members, and friends. Media, law enforcement, parole, etc. are not allowed to attend meetings.

There is no cost to attend. No reservations are required.

Sacramento In-Person Emotional Support Meetings:

The in-person support group meeting in Sacramento, CA is from 6:30 to 8 pm Pacific every Thursday. Please email for the location and other information.

I need help fighting a crime I did not do. I am appealing my case. I need an attorney who will represent me.

My son is being wrongfully accused of rape. I could use any support possible. We are scared.

@Lori Erickson

Are you financially prepared to fight this in court? Do you have sufficient hard evidence to prove his innocence? I would start with these questions…

There are some Registrants who’ve claimed innocence here that took plea deals by the recommendation of prosecutors because they were told they would do little to no time. The trade off was that they were labeled sex offenders which as you know carry terrible restrictions and social stigma for a very long time if not for life.

If your son has a strong case to prove his innocence and you have the money to pay for it then by all means fight.

@Lori Erickson:

It probably seems as if the world is collapsing and things could hardly get worse. I don’t know how bad/solid the allegations are or the situation, of course. But just know that it is probably not as bad as it seems. I don’t know how bad it is, and it could very bad, but just know that everyone, with very tiny exceptions, gets through it and life is better. Life is full of tribulations and problems and I would just try to remain as positive as possible and use this as an opportunity to grow stronger and show how good you are at defeating adversity. Personally, I really do believe that adversity makes people much stronger and is a good thing (in healthy, good moderation!).

Even if you son ends up having to Register (i.e. becomes a Person Forced to Register (PFR)), that alone absolutely does not prevent a person from living a great, very fulfilling life. I’ve been a PFR for over 2 decades and I have a great life. The Registries impact me very little, with the biggest impacts being that it restricts my ability to travel and I must constantly work to retaliate against the Registries. It also puts me in real, serious danger of being forced to very gravely retaliate against the Registries or any actions taken against my family. But other than that, all is just fine.

As far as advice for the allegations, if you son is truly not guilty then I would definitely never signal to the prosecution or law enforcement criminals that I would be willing to accept a plea bargain. That is what they want, especially if they have a weak/difficult case. They would love for your son to take a plea bargain for anything that requires him to be a PFR and for them to not have to actually work on anything. That is what they want. They will definitely try to scare/threaten/coerced your son into giving up. Don’t allow it. Stand strong and fight back.

If he is innocent, I would definitely fight it. Unless he just has no chance and your attorney tells you that they will convict another innocent person. Don’t dream for a second that they care if a person is innocent or not. They want a conviction, innocent or not. Also, don’t trust your own attorney TOO much. Half the time, they care little and just want to get rid of cases. They want to take the $$$ and move on.

Lastly, it is so crazy that it is necessary to state that your son has to prove he is innocent, as Bill stated here numerous times. Of course a person should not have to prove that they are innocent. But if you can, sure, that’s great.

A moral justice system would have to PROVE that your son is guilty. If your son didn’t do it, then it would be impossible for them to prove it. But that has never stopped them from convicting innocent people.

But I’ll tell you, decades down the road, I think your son would regret taking a plea deal and not fighting, if he is innocent. I only spent a couple of months in jail, but I’d trade it for 2 years right now in exchange for pleading guilty to what I actually did, versus what they railroaded/coerced/threatened/scared me into. Just remember, big government and their employees are real criminals. Never trust them.

Hi Lori-
Many are wrongly accused. Unfortunately, as soon as “sex” offense is mentioned, all presumption of innocence goes out the door. What state are you in? City? Some are better than others but none are good.

My best for a positive outcome. Rob

Are there any such support groups in NY
Thank You

I was on the February 20th telephone meeting and heard and tried to write down an email to contact to get access to a support group. It was something like: emotionalsupport@allfor???? I would benefit from this group I am sure. Thanks

@William Lyons

Here is a link to information on the emotional support group.

Also under meetings in the top right corner is a link to this page.

Hope that helps.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
