Many people have turned away from alcohol, drugs, or other addictions. They can say "I put that behind me years ago; I'm not that any more" and society supports their efforts to live a free life. Many convicted of sex crimes have been through therapy or a group treatment program, and have not re-offended in many years. They have a right to claim "I'm no longer a 'Sex Offender'" and not accept that label.
For a government to label a group of people with a criminal behavior is oppression. Calling someone a "sex offender" after he or she has completed a prison sentence and has shown a repentant heart, negatively affects re-entry into society. Placing lifetime stigmas on someone is vengeful and punitive. Where is their hope of redemption or their rights as a person? Everyone deserves the freedom to put the past behind and move forward.
In his 2004 State of the Union address, President George W. Bush said, “America is the land of second chances, and when the gates of the prison open, the path ahead should lead to a better life.”
We appreciate any donations. Thank you for your generous support.

Oklahoma RSOL does not condone or support any crime of a sexual nature. Anyone convicted of a sex offense should be punished according to the law. Our goals are aimed at preventing unjust and unconstitutional punishment of persons convicted of a sex crime from the time of arrest and after serving their time.
A person convicted of a sex offense should have the same legal or constitutional rights as anyone else. Those individuals released back to society deserve the chance to prove they have repented and can live without re-offending. Former sex offenders should be allowed to become productive members of society, and reconnect with family, without being labeled a "sex offender" and continually being treated as such.
