Though this blog is was originally intended as a resource for offenders in Massachusetts, much of what I write about is applicable to sex offenders in every other state and many countries around the world, especially in Western Europe. Even other non-sex offenders trying to navigate prison, probation and parole, or employment and education opportunities can glean relevant information from this blog and apply it to help overcome their own struggles.

And If You Were Wondering What I Meant By Perceived and Real Unfairness Mentioned In the Previous Post...

This case is an example of what guys in the sex offender group would consider unfair:

Not being required to register as part of a plea deal is something many in the public are unaware of and think all convicted of a serious sex crime are on the registry and are the ones they need to focus on.  I've seen this deal before in Massachusetts. A Weston resident had child rape charges and got off without having to register also.  But that's Weston, so I'm not surprised.  
At some level I suppose should be happy for this guy, that he doesn't have the anchor around his neck that is the registry...
