My home has been vandalized. My wife and children are ostracized in our community. My bank cancelled all my accounts that I had in good standing for over 15 years. I was only able to purchase a home in my neighborhood because everything is in my wife’s name and there is no clause about excluding sex offenders. There has to be a better way. The laws we currently have do not protect the public, they are merely punitive. The last time I checked that is unconstitutional. The recidivism rate for non violent, first time offenders is less than 1%. Politician are unfortunately the ones to change the laws affecting the registry and NONE of them want to be accused of being pro sex offender.
In the state of Missouri it is nearly impossible to rent an apartment, get an education or hold a decent paying job. The Registry puts fear in the heart of the public and makes it impossible to live a meaningful life. PLEASE PLEASE Change this system
