Hi I am new

Discussion started by RickB 4 years ago

Hi all.  A little about me.  I am a RSO low level. I tried to meet a teen for sex and was caught in a sting. Currently in Florida about 1 hr northwest of Orlando living with my mother and brother. Originally from southern New England and looking to return there to be near my children.


Biggest challenge for me is finding steady employment.  I had a p/t job and was let go because they didn't want to pay my insurance for the few hours I worked.  If they had given me the option of working sans insurance I would have taken it.


I really don't know what else to say other than I battle some extreme anxiety at times due to my fiancial/employment situation and it is leading me to reclaim my faith (catholic).  Sometimes I feel overwhelmed and a burden to my family and I don't want to go down the path that led me to my only arrest.  i have worked hard to get where I am and I have life plans that I, like all of you, want to fulfill.  I just have never been able to understand why RSO's are looked at worse that someone who maliciously chose to take someone's life.  In society people hear the term "sex offender" and they have preconceived notions.  I am fighting to overcome this stigma and I will.


I hope you all do too.  Everyone deserves the chance to recover from their past and I wish you all luck in your endevours.

New and desperate...at wits end. Worth more in the dirt than breathing according to my life insurance policy.

Hi. Based in Eugene, OR. I was recently convicted with two misdemeanors, one low level (class C) felon and have to register as a non predatory SO for next 13 years as I met a girl who misrepresented herself to me. I'm currently (I suppose like most people here...) struggling to find a job. I have a 13 year career just behind me that I started out of school. I was a sr global manager at a fortune 500 software firm. I'm hoping to connect with people here who have connections and or know business owners who are willing to look past my mistake and hire someone with my skill sets. If you are a business owner and or know businesses that will consider hiring someone with my skill sets and the now associated bad labels, please let me know.

Thank you
