REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDERS AND CUSTODY

1,404 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!

At what point do people get to move on with their lives? No matter what all of you people think the recitivism rate for a sex offender is 3%. The only crime lower is murder. Some people make mistakes, some are on the registry because of a false accusation from a vindictive ex, some peed outside, some are Romeo and Juliet cases and some are simply children that didn't know better. Please educate yourselves on the actual facts. Focus on your own case and stop the witch hunt with other people's lives. There are over 850,000 registrants across the US. A colossal waste of money to keep the registry going. Many families are never able to move past and there are more innocent people being held for collateral damage because of the restrictions and the registry. Many are put in danger, wives, children, mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers, etc. there are far too many vigilante people that have access to addresses, license plates, job locations, etc. The registrants have been alienated from society because of many of these restrictions and laws. Not only that, but they have no civil rights and many laws are unconstitutional! A thief does his time and moves on, a sex offender doesn't have that option because society and the ridiculous AWA doesn't allow them to do so. Congress needs to realize the affect it has on people that are trying to be good reformed productive members of society and abolish IML, AWA and these ridiculous registries and requirements. Not all sex offenders belong on that list and many, many of them are rehabilitated. Open your eyes already.
It saddens me so to see that the abuse, neglect and injustices are still being forced onto children/families by not just individuals who have proven themselves unfit to ever have custody or even access to any child, even their own, but by the very system that was supposedly put into place to protect our children! The Family Court System and Child Protective Services have shown a gross abuse of power and position, with some Private GALs using our children as a money-making venture instead of protecting the children's rights! The only way that change can take place is for all to let their children's voices be heard through them. What would a truly loving parent not do for his/her children? Fight the good fight, for what is right, and never, ever give up! Our children are the most precious gift that God, in his infinite love, has blessed us with. Let us never give up on them. Remember, the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men/women to do nothing!
Do you think this is the only one? Look up Nicholas Elizondo and Manuel Saavedra. Family Court has become male entitlement of children as property, closing their eyes to fathers criminal histories, evidence of sexual or physical abuse, etc. It takes huge numbers of victims for men to be held accountable and prosecuted, the Catholic Church, Bill Cosby, Penn State, on and on. The courts and those in power protect the status quo, closing their eyes to abuse of women and children, protecting the perpetrators and victim blaming the powerless. How Family Court operates when child safety and abuse is an isse is a huge scandal and stain on our country.
I. Testified at age 6 against Thomas Wollenberg for sexual abuse. He only got a year in jail her he did it every day . He did it to my brother and i. My min protected him by eating nothing in court although she saw and knew most of it. They divorced because he be at her bad. He was a monster who be at us and killed our docs sometimes even. So he strangles my min on a. Visitation and loses visitatiom rights .years later judge kirk in waupaca cty just lets Thomas Wollenberg have custody of my little brother . He said he only does it to girls so he was not worried. Well thanks judge. He tapes my brother every night. He made him rape his kids from his new stupid Wife .He almost killed him several Times he be at him so bad and negle red him. He taught him how to beat women .now because os judge kirk from waupa cty my brother is a Sex offender hurting his son. He has broken his ex's ribs. His Dog tan away he beat it so bad. He and i Don't talk because of his learned behavior. Ir he had not done what tom told him to he would have been killed. So. It is a no brainer and any damn judge who gives a convict custody of any child is just as much a criminal. I have no brother or nephew thanks to judge phillip kirk of waupaca cty. Who cares he just Hurts girls he said to me when i called him when i das 15. Go to hell
My daughter is one month old. Her father is in a military jail facility awaiting trial for raping me, as well as another woman a year before we were married. Now I find out he is being offered a plea deal, in exchange for pleading guilty to the other charges they will drop the charges of the case involving me. So in 3 years maximum he will be out of confinement and able to have shared custody of my daughter. A man who raped a drunk woman while she was passed out, and then less than two years later raped his wife at 8 months pregnant. The law says he is entitled to shared custody of a child. This is wrong. Regardless of the fact that this man was not convicted of an offense involving a child, he should not have a part in shaping the woman that my daughter will become. He is not responsible or remotely safe for her to be with. These laws must be changed.
I was unaware when i went into a relationship, WITH A CHILD from a previous relationship, and he was NOT obligated to tell me??? We had 3 beautiful girls before I came across the fact that he was convicted of molesting his 13 year old step daughter, ordered never to contact his ex wife, her children, or grandchildren. I stayed, leaving as soon as I could. Now he has money and I dont and he is trying to take custody of them. He is refusing the evaluations by the GAL and the NH Court continues to give him unsupervised visitation!! Its like a bad lifetime movie. My oldest is showing definite signs of abuse and my girls still stay there overnight, they see him naked and " he doesnt mind if he sees their vaginas" coming from my four year old. WHAT!!! Change this, please, most children dont report it till their twenties. Save my children years of possible abuse!!
Our children have no voice and they are innocent.Once the abuse has occurred they are no longer a child .They leave the mind they had and hide in another reality where the event didn't happen to them. I know this to be a fact , We must protect our children if we do not no one will.
Thank you all for your support of my petition, as we speak for the rights of children who can't speak for themselves! Please continue your support in standing up for the safety and welfare of innocent children. Remember, evil prevails when good men do nothing! No one stands taller than one who stands up for a child! Thanks again for your support and God bless you all! Sherry Branch
Its no wonder our children are so traumatized these days. just look at all of the signatures and stories on this petition. All saying basically the same thing. That the system has failed so many children. Mothers/Fathers are trying to protect their children from sex offenders while the system is enabling them. Where does it end? When does it end? start castrating and punishing these sick people and we wont have to spend thousands of dollars in attorney fees and court costs. missing hours and hours of work to fight a corrupt system.
Judge has just granted my child's father whom has just been indicated for sexual abuse against my child and my child has been disclosing his abuse for a year and finally told cps.... He now just got supervised visitation. What am I supposed to tell my three year old when I have to bring him there to see his perpetrator whom he wants nothing to do with and is completely terrified of? All because they think I'm sick enough to poison my child's mind.... Believing the accusations of the abuser. I have lost my right to protect my son as well. I am also about to loose the trust of my son and he will now blame me for making him go there to see him. The system needs to change and help protect these innocent children!!!!
