There has been substantial data provided that registration and the rules involved do more harm than good. The majority of sex offenders affected are not pedophiles or rapists. Though this is what the public believes. The registry and laws makes it near impossible for a sex offender to ever become a public asset. It makes it more likely they will go back to prison for a technical offense. It’s hard to find a place to live and extremely hard to get a job. Both these issues make a reoffense more likely. Data has shown that between 1.5 and 4 percent sexually re-offend. The data on those offenders shows who to concentrate on. The 96-98.5 percent and their family members don’t deserve the life long punishment as they would never re-offend. We are destroying too many lives unnecessarily.
