This to me is the crux of the question. If as some many on this thread have said, they never get better, they want this, they cannot change. Then I say they never are released back into society. I have held for a long time once you have done your time, and that may include a probationary period after release from jail or prison, but once everything is finished then you have paid for your offense and should be restored ie, voting, RTKBA, etc,....
The increasing stiffness of penalties after re-offending is supposed to make re-offending less likely if this is not working, or as some believe in the case of sex offenders cannot work then I think first time penalties ought to drastically increased maybe 25 years off the streets, chemical impotence or castration, something anything. This case with 18 years passing proves two things, one the information is out there and you OUGHT to be aware of those registered near you, and two no good deed goes unpunished. What did the folks who put these posters up accomplish??? Anyone ???? Chirp chirp
This thread is an old one. I have no clue how you or the person I responded to earlier today found it.
I don't know what happened in the end. However, the extent of the punishment should be prescribed at sentencing in my opinion.
