By No Chance:
I was sentenced to 8 months for "Sexual Assault of a Child" 15 years ago. Since then I have had many people give me a chance. Even with being a Registered Sex Offender.
On here it says How the offenders and their families are persecuted. Will, they are not the only ones. All my friends have come to me saying how they are being harassed by people for being friends with me. Luckily enough they have hung in there for me.
I know I did a terrible thing. I have been paying for what I did for over a decade and sincerely believe I will be paying for it for the rest of my life.
I just wish my friends, family, and girlfriend didn't have to go through this too. The only thing they did was trust me. Why should they have to pay for that.
