REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDERS AND CUSTODY

1,384 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!

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!!!!

The same has happened in Prince George's County, Md. Judge gave a RSO sole custody of minor child.
Protect the children!
I am the wife of a RSO. I am commenting on Someone from SC. Being labeled as a RSO deserves it to the extent that they have had high recidivism. My husband is more than apologetic for getting caught viewing porn. But prior to this incident he is and still is the most decent man I have ever known and will defend him with every fiber of my body, mind and spirit. It is truly ignorant of people to justify taking away parental rights if a RSO is whole heartedly doing everything they can to better themselves. To place all RSO under the same umbrella us unlawful not to mention the retaliation from the public, or ex's who have hate for their former spouse despite their current disposition. Every court should allow custody if biological and/or non-biological children but that should be based on the courts orders and not for the public based on their blind ignorance to dictate simply because they feel some kind of way. I agree that not every case is the same. Yes their are violent SO but on the other hand their are non-violent SO. I can not believe in my heart of hearts that once a child molester always a child molester. Yes my husband was caught viewing porn that he should not have done. However, I know he has no interest to look at it again. I am on your side to the person who posted from SC. Keep fighting the good fight to keep and be able to attain custody or shared custody of your child. I will pray for you.
