Default This does not sit well with me...

I found out last night that my mom's neighbor is a sex offender. And I'm not talking neighbor as in a couple miles down the road, I'm talking close enough to have a convo while on your front porches without screaming through microphone. That close.

He was convicted in Florida but now lives here in Georgia.

His conviction? Lewd Lavaticious (?) Acts with a child under 16.
My mom has custody of my 5 year old niece and my 4 year old nephew.

Needless to say, my mom and stepdad are not thrilled about this. At. All.
And neither am I.

I know everyone has different views on sex offenders, but I think my mom should of at least been notified that he was a S.O.
And he has 3 kids under the age of 16.

Would you be worried if he, or any other sex offender, was living that close to your house?

i would be worried , but kept an open mind , that charge could be as simple as a 18/19 yr old getting a consenual BJ from a 16 yr old.

I would just feel out the situation and be vigilant.

The guy is in his late 40s. I think that rules out the 18/19 year old thing.

how do you know for sure how old he is?

The only reason i ask is because i was recently fooled when the swamp man died , i swore he was in his 70's and was only 48.

How do you know he is an offender if she wasn't notified? Did he just move in our was in the hood before ya mom moved there?

Seriously be vigilant and watchful but dont worry to much because kids those ages should not be unsupervised anywhere anyway , so should not be an issue .

Do you know for sure when he was convicted? Its hard to say. In general yes, I would be worried but unfortunately the system does not really separate child molesters from statuatory rape (which can be an issue of course, but not always)

Most states have websites you can look it up on. I did when we first moved here and I was walking Sally at odd hours.

I would be vigelant, but not nuts about it. Consider yourself informed, and just keep an eye on the situation.

Seriously be vigilant and watchful but dont worry to much because kids those ages should not be unsupervised anywhere anyway , so should not be an issue . It shouldn't be an issue? Seriously? He sexually abused a girl under 16. There is a 5 and 4 year old living in THIS house. So excuse me for being blunt, but I will be making this an issue.
My answers are in red.

Yes he was convicted.
And I know the system can be shot to hell sometimes, but this is not something I take lightly.

A convicted sex offender lives next door. That's a pretty big **** deal to me.

Sadly no where is truly safe, whether the sex offender down the street has been convicted and now in a database or not yet caught but still your neighbor.

Be safe, maybe see what type of research you can do.

I'm not sure what else you can do without knowing your laws locally.

You could try by contacting your local representative.

This is true.
My mom has been trying to figure out who to contact so I will tell her about the local representative. Thank you.
