The Chicago Tribune recently looked at the the plight of juvenile sex offenders who names soon could be added to public registries.
This story features a 19-year-old who was convicted of a sex crime five years earlier.
“Tim, who asked that his last name not be disclosed, said he was rejected by military recruiters and a college admissions office after he informed them of his history. And he is concerned that a year from now, a federal law might cause his full name, photo and address to be displayed on the Internet, just like adult sex offenders,” wrote Tribune reporter John Keilman.
The article also has insight from University of Oklahoma psychologist Barbara Bonner, who treats teenage sex offenders.
