Struggling to Help in a Difficult Family Situation

My brother is in his late thirties, has no job, lives in rural Alabama, is on probation for a while after spending a year in prison, is a registered sex offender, and is a (hopefully) recovering addict. He is still living off my parents, who are at a loss to find a way for him to get a job. The state of Alabama has some incredibly strict limitations on what registered sex offenders can do, which makes dealing with the stigma even more difficult when trying to find employment. Help me come up with suggestions for a job for him. [more inside]

Family law questions, you are not my friend's lawyer

So, my best friend divorced her husband when she discovered that he was a child molester. Subsequent to the divorce, he has been convicted, added to the sex offender database and is forbidden from unsupervised contact with kids. She and he have a young child. Visitation has been at a court mandated facility, for which he bears the cost. Today she called and said her attorney told her to pull together a list of friends who would be willing to supervise the visitation. Wtf? [more inside]

How to deal with information about a sex offender

I just found out my 18 y/o nephew is living with a registered sex offender, who is also his friend and boss. I don't believe my nephew knows this, nor do any of his family members. I do not know if my nephew has been abused. I am not certain how to proceed with this information. [more inside]

how concerned should I be about my neighbor?

I'm a 30ish female who lives alone (well, with an little old dog) in a small studio house, in a semi-urban residential area of LA's eastside. The other day, I was out walking my dog and got into a unsettling conversation with my across-the-street-neighbor – a registered sex offender, turns out. I'm not afraid, exactly, but I really have no idea how to assess the risk of living alone across the street from this guy. (Potentially triggering.) [more inside]

Would you live next door to a sex offender?

My girlfriend and I put an offer on a house two weeks ago, and only thought now to check the sex offender registry. Turns out the guy next door was convicted in 2004 of aggravated sexual battery. Is this a deal breaker? I can't imagine her being alone at home with someone like that so close by. I really think we need to get out of the deal and look for another place but we really like this one and it's a bummer to start the whole process again.

Sex offenders: is there a male bias?

I know there may be no way to know this for sure, but my impression is that there are more male pedophiles, and in general more male sex offenders than female ones. Is there any way to ascertain this? [more inside]

No perhaps you should not give his name as a reference

Why, exactly, would it be terrible to announce that he is a child molester? [more inside]

Can I/should I do background checks on my building super?

How do I protect myself from a situation like the one I read about (inside), where a sex-offender was hired as a super and was allegedly being inappropriate? Can I/should I ask for background checks from anyone who has keys/access to my apartment, since it seems like the landlord is not required to do so (in NYC)? [more inside]

Would you move here?

Registered sex offender in the neighborhood, would you move in if you had two kids under the age of six? The house is perfect in a very quiet neighborhood at the end of long mostly dead end road. He was convicted 18 years ago of forcible rape with an 11 yr old boy. He is now married and lives just up the road and I mean "just". I would love to hear rational thoughts for and against. Thanks!

Is the potential for abuse enough reason to report someone?

This evening at a gathering of neighbors, I heard a disturbing story. The neighbor's ex-girlfriend has a brother who was sent to prison for raping her daughter when the child was 2-3 years old. The brother is now out of jail and living with his mother - the child's grandmother. When the girlfriend goes out, she takes all of her children and drops them off at the grandmother - which is where the child rapist lives. [more inside]
