  1. Ohio is made for all sex offenders to fail. I have been put of 1 yr in October and I have been bounced around to different transition houses because One, no one would give me a job and Two, no one wants to rent to a sex offender and Three, the ODRC & APA make life so changelling we just fail. I am lost since I left prison from doing ten yrs. I have no money. I found a nice house for 10,000 dollars but where to come up with anyone help to get it. I still waiting on SSI. Ohio just wants us to fail so they make sure sex offenders stay behind bars. It’s not right.

  2. Jamie Stanley

    Joseph couldn’t be more correct. I’ve lived it in Cincinnati. I was forced to sleep in 6 degree weather, because no shelter will eccept a sex offender. I spent 10 years in Federal prison, and. I’m ready to go back. I don’t believe this treatment is confined to Ohio
    I see a nation taught to despise sex offenders; embracing it whole heartedly. If black lives matter? Where do the citizens of these United States place us on their sliding scale of importantance?
