` News & Noteworthy: Articles Concerning Sex Offender Issues: Recidivism
The Consequences, of sex laws, sex crimes and accusations!
Suicides, Deaths, Murders, and Revenge.
This compilation is a legislative and public servant reminder, that something needs to be done; this is not a memorial. The consequences that sometimes occur need to be addressed as strongly as prevention, prosecution and punishment of sex offenses. When lives hang in the balance, ignoring the issues and consequences -even subtly-, is not an answer. Ignorance, of laws and issues, is not permitted for an offender, nor should it be for legislatures or public servants. We are quite sure this is not a complete list, but just those we have been advised of.

A Compilation of Deaths, Suicides & Murders of:
Former Sex Offenders, and/or Persons Accused (or Falsely Accused) of Sex Crimes
This record DOES NOT include deaths by natural causes, nor does it include any who have been executed for any sex related crime (See Texas)! John/Jane Doe Names: When newspapers don't release name/s just circumstances. (A)=Accused -or- (FA) Falsely Accused -or- (FL) Falsely Labeled -or- (IB) Innocent Bystander -or- (DO) Domestic / Other incident, if article infers such.
Red background means the facts of that case indicate that -at least in part- it is attributable to the registry -or- community notification -or- a change in the laws of that state or federal laws, -or- if in prisons or jails, the inmate's crime was revealed to other inmates, or the inmate was falsely labeled as a sex offender! Cases with active links shown: Clicking on the link will take you to the news article in our story blog about the case. Over time we hope to link to all articles as they are reported.. Note: (A) (FA) (FL) (IB) (DO) The presence of one of these means the facts of the article allows one to conclude that, however, as in a classification of (A) doesn't mean they could not be (FA) or (FL), the facts of the article only shows they were accused.
"VIG (Vigilante)" cases may very well result from the offender being listed on the registry, -or- from community notification. Further, "VIG" is assigned whenever the perpetrator is unknown, or if the news article indicates such. When it indicates others died in a suicide or murder, they are not included in the totals (PS)=Public Servant: Police, Fire, School, Social Worker, etc.
(RSO)=Registered Sex Offender
(C)=Clergy / (CL)=Change in Law/s

These Legends Apply to This Entire Column

"Year/State" Legends
When the background is RED that indicates incident occurred as a DIRECT (or in part) RESULT of the Sex Offender Registry -or- community notification (see case), or if inmate, somehow his crime was made public. When the background is BLUE the case is marked VIG (Vigilante, unknown perpetrator). These may well be caused by the registry or some other form of community notification including secondary notification by the public. When there is NO BACKGROUND COLOR there are insufficent facts to draw any inference from.
