In Community. I received this in my mailbox today from the state. His address is 4 blocks from my house. He was charged and did time for indecency with a 14 year old child and sexual assualt of a 28 year old female a few years later.

Why did he have to move into my neighborhood? He works in another town, couldn't he live there? I know he needs a place to live, but this really is a residential area with families who have children. It makes me uncomfortable having a known sex offender in my neighborhood. Not really afraid, but rather violated.

Well, you could do one of two things. Rally the neighbors and drive him out or be really glad you've got a hulking male Fila and not worry a whole lot. :D

I have a 26 page paper on this... but since I doubt anyone wants to read that, :rofl1:

Ill just say... these registries really do more harm than good... they get people all riled up when the chances are pretty slight that this offender will do anything.

You should be as cautious as you always would be and I dont really reccomend you go befriend the guy but everything will be fine.

That's nothing... my next door neighbor is a child sex predator. :yikes:

This is a small, safe town and tons of kids play on this street. But he is a registered child sex predator, who got ran out of a town in another state. So he moved to this town, in this state, a few years ago.

We didn't know this till after we moved in. Our sheriff told us, and then the neighbors confirmed everything.

He's older, probably in his early 60's. He appears 'nice' on the outside, but he's extremely creepy. I mean extremely. He uses this weird voice when talking to you, and eyes you down as he speaks. Did I mention he's extremely creepy?

I am interested in it. What did you write about? I wrote my big law school paper about the requirements in a lot of states and cities that offenders can't live within x feet of schools and bus stops and stuff and how intrastate travel should be a recognized right like interstate is.

Knowledge is power. Doesn't have to scare you...now you can just be aware and go on with life.

We have one less than that from us AND the elem. school...actually.

I agree with HBH. Just be aware. I'm not too worried about our neighbor. He's quiet, keeps to himself, and people are used to him. I'm not a child, and I don't have children, and most on this street just keep a close eye on their children. And there's a LOT of kids on and off this street. At least 20 or so. You'll see most of them after school riding their 4-wheeler's, or a couple on their horses. But you always see a lot of parents out on their property, doing yardwork and keeping an eye on the kiddos as well.

Just be aware, but don't be afraid.

I agree that those registries can do quite a bit of damage, especially if it was a crap charge (17 y/o boy gets charged with stat. rape for having sex with his 16 year old gf a week before her 17th bday type of thing). But also knowing that sex predators are the most likely to re-offend makes me iffy on allowing them to live in a neighborhood heavily populated by kids. There are neighborhoods out there that have few kids at all; I grew up in one. My family, the neighbors to the right of us and one other family, that was about it. Otherwise it was DINKS or retirees.

Haha, I should have said.. only another person who felt compelled to sit through law school would be interested.

I actually wrote about civil commitment programs and how closely they adhere to constitutional restraints and statutory intent (not very closely!) But I looked heavily at recidivism rates in order to recommend my own program.

But in doing, so I found a lot of info on Registry programs and although I wasnt going to use it in my paper, I found it very interesting.

That stat rape case actually happened to a kid. He did his time, grew up and was always registered. One day this man got the idea to look up sex offenders in his area and go and shoot and kill them... this former "kid" who was now a grown man got shot and killed.

Sex offenders are LESS likely to reoffend actually than the general prison population and of them child molesters are the LEAST likely to offend.

Ahh...interesting. I found the recidivism rates interesting when I was researching since it's always made out to be that sex offenders are "incurable" and will always reoffend

hard to believe that...about the re-offenders. To me that just means they get smarter and don't get caught. They let out some fool here not long ago and he raped another woman within TWO HOURS.

Having been a victim,...I find it very hard to believe, indeed.

After all my years working in the criminal legal system (I refuse to dignify it with the term "justice" system), many of the cases being rape, I have such little faith in the veracity of verdicts that I'm not willing to take a conviction record on its face.

As long as one of the local cops doesn't move into my neighborhood I'm good, lol!

I now have a cop two blocks from me in one direction and a sex offender 4 blocks in the other direction. I wonder if I needed help which one would show up first? lol

Well, at least I know I can count on Brutus to protect McKinely when she is here, he rarely leaves her side. Hopefully Dahlia will feel the same about her.

Agreed.

And I'd be interested in the paper!

Oh, the law side, I thought it might be more of the social side :p

However, still interesting :)

Lol Renee, don't come live near me then! My neighbor down the street is the sheriff... this town's ONLY sheriff. Across the street from me is his only son... the state trooper. My next door neighbor on the other side of me...is the mayor of this tiny town. :D

LMAO, I'm surrounded! But luckily they are nice, understanding folks. Thank God, cause as I said, I'm surrounded!
