Sex Offender Non Violent And Violent Status A Virginia State Trooper Said That Just Because You're Listed As A Violent Sex Offender Doesn't Necessarily Mean You're Violent Or That You Did Something Violent Because It's Just A Classification. Is That True?
I don't really understand your question. All words only have the meaning which we give to them. What is considered violent by someone may be considered nonviolent to someone else.
Presumably when coming up with the rules for how to categorize sex offenders, those in charge viewed the crimes which are in the violent category as being violent crimes.
Yes, it is possible to be labeled a violent sex offender without actually so much as hurting a fly, let alone a child or adult person. It happens all the time with people who are convicted of distributing child porn by sending links or pictures with their computers.
I am not sure if you are talking about your own situation or someone you know but the nature of the crime is listed on the sex offender registry along with the nature of the offense. However, there are many types of crimes that will cause one to be placed on the violent sex offender registry that don't necessary mean that the offender even had contact with the victim or that any "violent" act occurred.
