Consequences of dating a sex offender
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.
That works out to about 4 cases actually making it to trial out of 100 accusations.
In NO case is the word of EITHER a child OR a parent enough by itself to bring such a case...there MUST be some level or type of coorborating evidence of some type.
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.
Just so you have some clarity ..are some things you should know....
I'm not sure of his situation and I know you trust him, but keep a watchful eye when he is around your kids.
Yes the biological dad can use this situation as an advantage to take full custody of your children if he were to find out.
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.
