REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDERS AND CUSTODY

1,168 Letters Sent So Far

There is no more heinous crime, short of murder, than child sex offenses. Actually, molestation/rape of a minor child is nothing short of "murder of the soul of a child", a crime against nature that robs young, innocent children of any "normalcy" that they may have had in their lives, robbery of their God-given right for a fair chance at a good life. It robs them of something deep inside of their character, of who they are, that cannot ever be replaced. South Carolina has, in an unprecedented case, granted sole custody of an innocent minor child to a REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDER. The public here is outraged at this bizarre ruling, and we view it as nothing short of blatant child endangerment. The registered child sex offender in question also lives across the street from a middle school and a major park. Why does the SEX OFFENDERS REGISTRY exist if it is not to be enforced? The mother of this unprecedented case took this case all the way to Supreme Court only to be told that the Supreme Court refused to hear the case without reason why. Our concern is not only for the helpless child that was placed in the care of such a "thief of innocence", but that this unprecedented case opens the door to other cases of minor, innocent, helpless children being placed in harm's way! We respectfully ask for a law against REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDERS being granted custody of minor children! The "best interest of the children", as the Family Court System claims, should override any "rights" that an individual who has shown him/herself such a threat to children may claim. We speak out for the children who have no voice! It is the duty of each parent and state to protect our children!

my ex is a registered sex offender (pepping tom) we were recently divorced and although we have joint custody the judge agreed to have my 15 yr old to live with him.... unbelievable..............
It is happening to us, unfortunately. I have a teenage son who will be court ordered overnight visits at his dad's place even though his dad is a convicted child sex offender. In Colorado, it's child sex offenders who have more rights than a drug dealer. I had to tell my son I failed and there is nothing I can do. He is forced to go to a child molester's house. Life sucks.
Children's rights and safety should be taken, significantly, more seriously than child sex offender's! This is an outrage!
Im a registered sex offender and am seeking custody of my13 year old daugter. I was charged with criminal attepmt to commit the crime of rape. My victim was in her late 30's. Just because im labeled doesnt mean im a monster and don't deserve the god givin right to be a father to my child. To lump each and every offender together is a huge problem. My wifes two children live with us on and off all year. Their dad is a federal cop and knows i would do any and everthing to protect those two children. He has complete confidence and trust in me. The courts continue to tell the public that they are impartial and fair but have yet to prove it. You cant throw each and every sex offender in one lump group nor pass laws that effect them as a whole. This is unjust and not the kind of future our for fathers wanted nor what they faught for.

My ex boyfriends father is a level 3 and I sick of the police telling me its ok for him to be alone with my child he has made questionable comments about my daughter Nd I've brought this up and all I get told is I'm not allowed near my daughter but he is even the dcf wont help this is ridiculous
Sex offenders against children obviously don't have the mental capacity to realize and control their sexual perversions. I full heartedly believe that a child molester will NOT care if it is their child or not, they will torture any innocence in order to get their rocks off. It is disgusting. Just as any drug charge inhibits a person from obtaining food stamps in Indiana, any child sex offender charge should inhibit a person from ANY rights to a child!!!! PROTECT OUR KIDS!
I am in a situation where the offender was supposed to be rehabilitated, but has emotionally abused myself and my daughter to the extent she refuses to see him, but the court does not respect her needs and wishes and the father's rights are now putting children at risk. Please look at the children and the psychological damage and abuse that can happen as well as leaving them open to sexual abuse from the offender but also due to the psychological damage to abuse from others in the future.

Sex offenders should only be allowed supervised visitation.
I have a child with a registered sex offender. My child is 2 years old and I had to get two DNA tests for him to believe it was even his child. He is in rears in child support 10 grand and has been in and out of rehabs since my son was born. My son doesn't have his last name and the guy isn't even on the birth certificate because of how absent he was during my pregnancy and deciding he was his. Now out of rehab a third time, now he wants to take me to court for partial custody! Mind you he gave me sole custody because he didn't want anything to do with my son. Now all the sudden, he does. My child doesn't even know him and for him to want to take my child away from the only father he knows just cuz he finally feels like the looser he is and wants to know his child. I don't believe that a sex offender should have any rights when it comes to children. Especially one who has shown no interest in his child from the beginning. I feel for all of you woman and I hope you all get in your favor.
I have a 10 year old daughter her father is a violent sex offender threatened me to give him partial custody he has a long record I don't no what to do its not fair that sex offenders have rights
please if a parent that is a registered sex offender please make a law that they have to have supervised visits. A registered sex offender can't be around daycares, schools or other kids please protect the kids of registered sex offenders who have no voice. Even if the sex offender didn't molest their own child but did another child it's not a matter of if they will do it again but when that is why they are registered. Please protect the kids. Thank you
