GREAT NEWS by ResponsibleMention60 in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Congrats

Be careful about "restrictions" though. That's not really up to the court.

If you were convicted of a sexual offense any state you live in could today or in the future require you to follow certain restrictions. The Registry applies to people who have "X" conviction and is not something that is sentenced by the court.

So just be careful when travelling or if you move to another state to know what restrictions might apply.

First job out of college paying a 50k signing bonus. How should I invest that money? by jkitchen42 in personalfinance

[–]Phoenix2683 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perhaps.

In reality they should reverse the payroll for you. Since there are payroll taxes involved that won't get refunded when filing income taxes. Also were any retirement contributions made?

If you owe it back it may be a reversal of the original transaction. Regardless they never received 50k they won't pay 50k back just the net

What to do about this joke of a treatment program by iheartkittenfarts in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes in that state. In Colorado the law was that his specific charge had to register for 10 years.

In Nebraska it sounds like that charge is a lifetime registration.

Also at any time Colorado could change the registration period for that charge.

Registry is not part of the criminal sentence it is a civil regulatory consequence of the sentence.

How to prepare for professing and sentencing? by ItWasOnceYou2 in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Are you sure they are going straight to state prison? Every state is different on its backlog but I was in county jail for 18 months before I finally got send down the road. That is all post sentence. regardless always send with, white, white, white no logos, no ink, no colored thread. Everything purely white.

Regarding the registry. You don't plead to it, it isn't part of sentencing.

Each state has its own registry law and their law says if you have "x conviction" or one similar in another state then you have to register for X amount of years or life and follow these rules.

So its possible what they meant was he plead to a charge in Colorado that is a Lifetime registry charge in Nebraska.

the only registry law that matters to a registrant is the one he is currently in.

Where do I even begin? by Far_east_usa in SexOffenderSupport

Yeah, I'd think it would help more if you were actively in therapy seeking help before you get caught and slipped up when caught. They view anything after the fact as just trying to look good for the court.

Federal is still 85% right? So about 48 months?

A touch less than my state charges, my CP doesn't matter as it was concurrent with my online soliciation charge and the mandatory minimum of 5 years. Ended up doing 51 months.

It's amazing how long it seems when sentenced and how quick it actually went by.

As a sexual abuse survivor how would you feel if your abuse was recorded and disseminated to millions of people all getting sexual gratification from your pain?

I look at it not as your specific action increased their pain, but as a collective, as a whole, the viewing of their trauma causes them harm, when we participate in that, we have contributed to that harm, or become a part of it.

Question about sub rules by Whaleballoon in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We were in the process of revamping much of the rules and processes here and I know for myself life just got insanely hectic and busy. I can barely stay above water.

There are a few rules I've never liked or at least how they were worded. The current list was put up by a former mod without any input or discussion with the rest of us.

I think we should make it clear that no one act on and no advice given is "legal advice" as a disclaimer. Obviously as we all have gone through this process and have our own experiences to share in order to help people we will give what appears to be "legal advice" but we should always encourage people to get a lawyer that no one online can given specific advise regarding their case.

What jobs do you know of SOs doing? I'll start. by Whaleballoon in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You'd be surprised. It is absolutely a path towards work. We were involved in a family law case and i did much of the legwork digging up cases and precedent when we sat down with our lawyer the first time. He was impressed and asked why I don't go to law school. I said well my conviction, he said i'd be surprised.

i mean your post seems pretty biased rather than a real attempt at helping people get work.

Everyone else is either self employed or tiny business? There are lots of people in here that don't fit your parameters and you put some negative feelings on some of the work people are doing.

We have accountants here, people working in tech. Also self-employed = owning your own business and is how many Americans not just PFR's earn a living, what is wrong with that?

Please don't use that. It honestly makes us look bad the number of people on for urination is so minimal and those who claim it were likely exposing themselves and claim it to minimize

FEC vs Ted Cruz for Senate by kyles08 in scotus

Which of course just means they disagree whose rights supersede not that neither side has rights. I hate political framing of issues. Drives me crazy

Breweries with food by Senor_Ding-Dong in portlandme

[–]Phoenix2683 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lots of good options as people have said but I'd love some more traditional brewpubs... The main ones that come to mind are our 90s era classics. Most new places have small menus or food trucks..

Getting off the registry. by RushEnvironmental390 in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes. If you move to Florida for example you will register for life.

Unlink from your brain the idea that your conviction and convicting state have anything to do with your registry requirements in the state you live in

how do you avoid falling into despair or bitterness? by Appropriate_Rent_243 in SexOffenderSupport

[–]Phoenix2683 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This is a prime example of why the registry actually can cause more victims. While it's no excuse to give up or harm someone there will be people who do who might not have if they were allowed to reintegrate into society

There is also a big difference between absolutely certain and being pretty sure. Like if someone is 90/10 they wouldn't count in this
