Do you think that registered sex offenders are the scum of the Earth, creepy guys hanging out near schools and parks leering at small children just waiting for the opportunity to pounce? Well, sadly some are. But there are a whole lot of people on the sex offender registry that you might think don't belong on it, and even more out there who you would wish were. Can you trust law enforcement and the judicial system? Do you believe everything counselors say? What is your understanding of Constitutional rights of the accused? Could you imagine that one parent would be able to use the judicial system to alienate their children from the other parent? Do you think that pedophiles are only adult males and that Catholic priests are the only ones in the church who hurt children? How I Became A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER is a heartbreaking story about a man who survived a childhood filled with abuse only to have it come back to haunt him and his family in the worst ways. This book will give you a new perspective on life, family, justice and hope.

My greatest appreciation goes out to Tante Waileka for her wonderful review. I took your suggestions to heart and re-published the book and placed the focus on the point of the story, the legal battle.
And, by the way, I am currently gathering material, thanks to my ex-wife, for what will hopefully become my next book, which will focus on my custody battle.
Finally, I have begun to raise funds and begin the planning process for producing a documentary film that will expose the realities of the sex offender registry because mine is but one of thousands of sad stories.
