Rethinking Nebraska's Sex Offender Registry

Omaha television station WOWT asks whether everyone listed on Nebraska's Sex Offender Registry should be on the list. 

Reporter John Chapman talks with a young man who is on the registry for having sex with an underage girl he thought was 19 years old.
For that mistake (Jeromy) Wilson was charged with first degree sexual assault of a child. He plead no contest to third degree sexual assault and went to prison for a year.“I wasn’t denying the fact that I made a mistake, but I was also trying to savor the fact that she had falsified her information to me,” Wilson explained, “And I’m still trying to maintain some of my dignity.”Now Wilson has a lifetime spot in the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry. He says people are using the registry to harass him, to call his clients to prevent him from working. 
The report also includes comments from UNO's Dr. Lisa Sample.
