This is likely just a drop in bucket, but it’s slightly worrying how they keep trying to push down the ages for these things.

The sex offenders register is an absolutely horrible thing to do to someone. It’s essentially social death.

Hard to find employment, sometimes forced to become homeless (while being denied access to homeless shelters) due to all affordable housing being “near a school” in some places and it probably won’t even prevent a crime to begin with as his brain was likely underdeveloped at the time (due to being only a child).

The Sex Offender Registry does more harm than good.

The American justice system is already designed to encourage repeated offenses but the SOR is just an open declaration of that.

We live in clown world. The offenses are not even as bad as people make them out to be.
