The bottom line is that you can never know - and unless you happen to be a highly skilled and experienced child psychoanalyst, expecting that you'd RECOGNIZE a child molester isn't practical.
They tend to be able to commit their crimes PRECISELY because they manage to go undetected.
IF such a case DID go forward, all the way to trial, and a conviction was entered, you can be pretty sure that the prosecution had a strong case.
These types of cases are among the absolute hardest TO prosecute, exactly because the prosecution knows going in that they MUST have more than an accusation to gain a conviction.
Be very careful and do your OWN research into the case. Even if you don't agree with it, you need to know and understand what that reason was.
Beyond that, there are TWO big dangers you face; the father, and the state.
When it all began, the ex tried to charge him in another stats and it was found to be nothing.
He said that it is totally untrue and he was railroaded.
Apparently the jury felt that the evidence presented meritted a conviction. He has several nieces and nephews living next door and none of his family is scared to leave their children with him.The daughter said it did not happen and refused to testify. DA at the time was running for election and wanted to win election by way of this high proofile case. He spent a small fortune on his defense and investigators in the county colaborate his story of his innocense. I have seen no signs of foul play with my own children. When it all began, the ex tried to charge him in another stats and it was found to be nothing.Anyway he has 8 more yrs on registry and is classified as no threat. He is a very calm and event tempered person and loving. She the tried to file charges in te county where he lives now and it was found to be nothing.He spent a small fortune on his defense and investigators in the county colaborate his story of his innocense. I have seen no signs of foul play with my own children.Anyway he has 8 more yrs on registry and is classified as no threat. He is a very calm and event tempered person and loving. On the other hand, most people thought Ted Bundy was a super quiet, charming guy who was great with his girlfriend's child too.Doesn't matter if he "did it" or not - that you're willing to RISK your children around someone with that sort of conviction won't impress the court that your willingness or ability to protect the children is your highest priority. Some individuals lead a normal life, others have entire neighborhoods on a witch hunt for them and get hounded from one city to the next.Hooking up with a convicted sex offender is like a box of chocolates...never know what you're gonna get.You can expect to have a lot stacked against you in legal matters concerning your children, yes.If their father seeks custody, his arguement that you willingly and knowingly brought a convicted sex offender, whose crime was committed against a minor, under your roof with your children, will carry a LOT of weight with the court.i guess i need to lokk into the case a little more then. I agree with you about the 'signs' they can go undetected. I will research some more before I subject the kids anymore. I plan to look at concrete evidence and court info also. Thanks again Sometimes these situations are a one time occurrence, but usually not.We have been dating for a while and he has just told me about this. Thank Oh, the daughter that this happened to never said it did. This all cams about after he caught her cheating and left her. They were married 6 yrs and in the process of divorcing. Someone sentenced for breaking and entering has a much better chance of not entering the system again then someone sentenced to aggravated sexual assault of a minor.
