Dating a convicted sex offender
Some of this information will appear on the sex offender website, but not all will be made available to the public.
We have testified before Illinois congress, had several favorable articles on us from the Chicago Tribune, yet they wont let my husband - Mark - off the registry. Mark's oldest son (from a previous marriage) was assaulted in Hyde Park, defending Mark from fellow classmates calling Mark a rapist!! This law (Megan's laws) was designed to protect children, not ransack and destroy families and put a Scarlet Letter around someone's neck who does not deserve to be labeled as a sex offender. In 1999 the state passed a new civil commitment law for which the prosecuting attorney re-petitioned me to be re-evaluated. Tying someone up without their permission and not letting them go... Doing unwanted SEXUAL things to him, AFTER restraining him... The judge felt sex offender registry was not necessary. What I've found is holding a community meeting, with a pastor or rabbi, a judge or mediator, the extended family and all the neighbors puts it out in the open and builds a network of support.
