My son lost his job at Chili's when they found out he was a sex
offender. He's been trying to find work. He does odd jobs for people
through the employment office - which pays very little. He wants to move
back to McAlester. We found a place about 10 miles out of town to rent.
He applied and told them his situation. They denied him.
I've been trying
to find him a home. No one will rent to him - even in the town he grew
up in where people know us and him. This infuriates me! He can't live in
our home - where he lived for YEARS when growing up - because a school
and park are too close by.
He is listed as level 3 because he sent text messages accidentally to a minor when intoxicated.
attorney sends me a letter telling me he can get me off the SO
registry. He says by law I shouldn't need to register anymore. But he needs thousands
of dollars to represent me. Why should I have to pay an attorney to fix
a problem caused by attorneys. Didn't I already pay my debt to society?
They keep changing the registration laws without my money, so why can't
they just fix the laws and get me and others off the registry?
