A certain stigma comes with having a sexual conviction on your record. As if being listed on Florida's public sex offender registry and the national registry isn't enough, there are also the possible personal and professional repercussions. Add into the mix a residency ban, which is a real thing in certain areas, and the fallout from a sex crime is one that can continue to haunt a person -- and their families -- for years to come.
With the registries and residency bans, the problem is the consequences do not start and end with just the person on the registry. Rather, their family members -- including their children -- are often forced to suffer through the consequences too.
