The group is made up of sex offenders, their family members, and advocates who believe state lawmakers overlook low re-offense rates for the group, and ignore obstacles to rehabilitation.

"You're pushing sex offenders further out of the community which makes it harder for them to go in check with their parole officer, go into their counseling sessions," said Arkansas Time After Time Executive Director Carla Swanson.
