Nebraska Sex Offender Website Guideline #4

The Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website prior to Jan. 1, 2010, included only individuals who were at high risk to reoffend. Since Jan. 1, 2010, the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website has included people who are not dangerous as well as people who are innocent of what they were accused of doing. These are individuals who accepted plea agreements rather than deal with our society’s “guilty until proven innocent” attitude toward sexual offenses. By listing them on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry website, the state violated their plea agreements and legal action is being pursued to hold the state accountable.

  1. Tomorrow marks my 10 years since the completion of my sentence, and the unconstitutional punishment begins. I would have never accepted the plea deal the state offered me if I knew they would not keep their promise of 10 years on the registry.
    I will be filing for a reduction of time since my crime was a misdemeanor. I completed court ordered treatment but did not receive a certificate, so if anyone has ideas on how to word my statement, that would be appreciated.
