Reader Alexdarc responds to Wife of Sex Offender Shows What Life is Like Long After the Incident. She says that it’s not hard for law-abiding people to avoid the sex offender registry, and when you marry one, you’ve brought those conditions on yourself…
“I have a alot of trouble feeling bad for this woman and her husband.
Is it a bummer that he got nailed for having sex with a drunk & high
girl who was underage? Yup – but seriously, when you do that, anyone
with two brain cells to rub together should know that there is a good
possibility that the drunk, high girl isn’t going to remember you
fondly, and her parents less so.
“A record is forever, period. If you don’t want to get one, act like a
law abiding citizen, don’t have sex with people who 1) you don’t know 2)
are high 3) are drunk 4) are possibly 15.
“As for her, she chose to marry him, knowing that his record would follow
them everywhere. She also chose to have children with him that would
also bear the stigma.
I don’t think the Sex Offender Registry is infallible – obviously there
are loads of guys who haven’t been caught yet, and some who will claim
the don’t belong there at all.
“But I think it is a nice guide to help
you stay away from people who’ve managed to screw up their own lives and
would probably screw yours up too, if you let them.”
