Much of the recent credible research into sexual offending especially offending against children has been done by renowned Canadian scholar Michael Seto, Director of Forensic Rehabilitation Research at Royal Ottawa Health Care and author of the book, Internet Sex Offenders. Over time FTR has become the most common recidivism offense for RSOs, probably because it is so easily detected and proven. He was first put on the registry at age 15, for 10 years. Most offenders will be banned from public housing, apartment complexes, or on-campus housing. That seemed to convince Alito, who would later express doubt about whether there were no other alternatives: And there is little opposition to this, because what media personality or politician would advocate for offenders when there is so much to be gained with the opposite stance. In locales with both registration requirements and residency restrictions, independent housing might be unattainable. Violent sex offenders must report quarterly, meaning they have to watch the calendar more carefully. Registration may seem akin to completing a change of address card for the post office but, of course, of immeasurably greater import. However, even when that occurs the court may still be required to mete out a harsh mandatory sentence. Even Ginsburg and Kagan did not seem at first to regard the law as completely flawed. If you plan to travel for your birthday, make sure you register before you go. If research continues to confirm these conclusions, it would seem public policies compelling registration are misguided, and severe criminal penalties for FTR are unwarranted.
