Hi. My name is Thomas Erickson and I need some help fast. I am a RSO (Registered Sex Offender). I have been on the sex offender registry since 1998. I recently learned that I could get off the registry. I hired a lawyer and have payed $3,500.00 Dollars to get the "Ball rolling". I have run into a huge snag and need some real help. I have been through sex offender treatment both in and out of prison, Here is the problem after 10 years the records of this are destroyed by the state. My lawyer wanted me to pay another $1,000.00 Dollars to get a evaluation from a doctor so that we would not be going to court "Naked" Well I am broke and have no more cash at all. What I do need from some one that is far better at articulating and writing than I am is 10 things I have learned from sex offender treatment. Every time I try to write it all out I fail. I just do not know what my lawyer thinks I am capable of but this is just not it. I am desperate, I need help. I need some one to help me write this out for the judge. I do not know what else to do. I am at my very end. I am desperate I do not know what else to do. I want off this "HIT LIST" I need off and have spent every last dime I have. I do not know where else to turn. I have followed your web page for well over 5 years and I can see that you are my only hope. You know what to say how to say it and just who to writ it out. I know you do not know me from Adam. But I am desperate you are my only hope. Please help me. Please.

I understand if you do not want to get involved but I just do not know where else to turn. I am out of options and time. Please could you find it in your heart to help me?

Thomas Erickson.

What state are you in? I recently received a COR, and I can attest that a positive psych evaluation can go a long way. Other things you'll need are an affirmative letter, about how you've improved your life. Lastly get as many letters of recommendation that you can, from non-family members. Wife, GF, landlord, employer, friends. Personal letters from people in authority (cop, firefighter, doctor) will go a long way. One thing that will give you tons of ideas, is to go to the courthouse and request to see a file of a person who's been granted a COR, perusing their letters.

Something that will help you, if you haven't done this already, is learn skills that you can take into working for yourself. I'm into computers and real estate, for example. Become your own boss, and learn to think outside the box. You will be much better off in the long run.
