My husband was 18 and had sex with a 15 year old. He was young and dumb himself and didn't think to ask her age assuming she was his age. The next day she called and wanted to hang out again and he showed no interest and her mother was furious and pressed the rape thing of course. My husband didn't have anyone to turn to, sat in jail and had a court appointed lawyer who could care less about any of it. He was screwed by the system. If he was 3 months younger or she was 3 months older this wouldn't have been illegal. He got 7 years probation, sat in therapy with real child molesters, paid money that we didn't have, etc... and this having to register crap is ruining our lives also!He finished his 7 yrs of probation in 04' and one of his last probation officers said if he got a lawyer since he is a no risk offender he could probably get off of having to register. So we've contacted a few lawyers after hearing that and no lawyers have heard of that or are interested in helping us out. Is it possible to get him off of the sex offender registry? I have kids that I have to protect from the judging of the public rather than protecting them from this "sex offender" that is their father. I'm all for punishing sex crimes, rapes, molestations etc... but he did NONE of those things! He should not be in the same catergory as someone who brutally raped a woman or a man who secretly molested his kids. I'm not saying he was right for having anything to do with this girl, but they were in the same age group. EightTEEN... he was a teenager himself. This was NOT a perverted act Mr. John M. Kaman. Seems like YOU sir are the one with the problem.
