Next Meeting 10/7: children who are sex offenders

3 Oct

As Law and Order: SVU will tell you, “sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous.” This statement is one that most people will readily agree with.  You’ll find few sane people who are “pro-rape” or are cool with the idea of molesting children.  But what happens to those who commit crimes that fall short of rape but are still considered sex crimes?  And what happens when they are children who are committing these crimes?

This week’s topic is the sex offender registry and juvenile offenders.  Click the link below to get to the Alternet article introducing the topic.  It’s a provocative article when it comes to sex offenders, so be ready for some discussion on Thursday.  See you guys then!
