I do not know the specifics of your boyfriend's case but, with that said, he didn't think the girl was 17 to 18 at the time, he thought she was 13. He would not have been arrested, let alone convicted, if the transcripts of the computer chat said she was 17 or 18. Do yourself a favor, look at the court records and the transcripts of what he was saying to the girl he thought was 13. I have written a book somewhat relating to this and you are doing the right thing by giving thought to the potential affects of your future. Give it some real deep thought. Do you want to be married to the guy when the cops kick in the door and drag him out in front of the cameras next time.
Now having said all that, yes, I know the police can twist things and your boyfriend could actually be the one guy who really was not guilty, he could be the one, but don't believe me, I don't know him. Go look at the trancripts of his internet chat that they used to convict him. I wish you well. Good Luck!

While it is not against the law to marry him, there are severe restrictions on where he can live in relation to parks, schools, etc. A good place to start doing research is 730 ILCS 150/1, which is the Illinois Sex Offender Registration Act.
