Repeat Sex Offenders

Sex offender activists want you to think 99% of sex offenders will never re-offend. Their motto? Hey, We're Pervs & We're Proud!

But just what are the facts? From a 2004 study:

  • The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) reports the results of a 2004 Harris and Hanson study which indicates that rapists have a 24% rate of re-offense, child molesters targeting girls 16%, and child molesters targeting boys, 35%. Offenders with a previous sex offense conviction have a 37% re-offense rate. 

Recently Derek Logue and at least one other person traveled to Florida to campaign against the registry. Logue says he was one of four, but doesn't have any names or photos to verify that. He's a former Colbert/Franklin County resident who was convicted of First Degree Sexual Abuse in this state.

Why blog on this today? This happened just this weekend:

Did Uding's alleged victim know he was a sex offender? We don't know. We do know that everyone should check out his/her neighbors. Here's the easiest way:

We keyed in the ZIP 35633, not the largest one in the area, and came up with 33 offenders. Some of these named simply made some bad decisions; some are predators. Know your neighbors.
