There is no more heinous crime, short of murder, than child sex offenses. Actually, molestation/rape of a minor child is nothing short of "murder of the soul of a child", a crime against nature that robs young, innocent children of any "normalcy" that they may have had in their lives, robbery of their God-given right for a fair chance at a good life. It robs them of something deep inside of their character, of who they are, that cannot ever be replaced. South Carolina has, in an unprecedented case, granted sole custody of an innocent minor child to a REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDER. The public here is outraged at this bizarre ruling, and we view it as nothing short of blatant child endangerment. The registered child sex offender in question also lives across the street from a middle school and a major park. Why does the SEX OFFENDERS REGISTRY exist if it is not to be enforced? The mother of this unprecedented case took this case all the way to Supreme Court only to be told that the Supreme Court refused to hear the case without reason why. Our concern is not only for the helpless child that was placed in the care of such a "thief of innocence", but that this unprecedented case opens the door to other cases of minor, innocent, helpless children being placed in harm's way! We respectfully ask for a law against REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDERS being granted custody of minor children! The "best interest of the children", as the Family Court System claims, should override any "rights" that an individual who has shown him/herself such a threat to children may claim. We speak out for the children who have no voice! It is the duty of each parent and state to protect our children!

You people are idiots. I'm not perfect, in fact I'm an idiot too. Because of various abuses suffered at the hands of relatives, I spent my childhood,teens and young adult life coping with damages suffered. This is nothing new in human history. In my midteens I began experimenting with weed and alcohol than in early 20'S, meth. While high on hard alcohol and crank, I met and had consensual relations with a girl (who turned out to be daughter of sheriff deputy). I paid for "crimes against society" prescribed by law. Never re-offended in that manner again. Years later, I have been harassed out of jobs, threatened with bodily harm, persecuted by peers, family and law enforcement. My own innocent children (yes I dared to live a good healthy life!) were taken and auctioned off by county officials, because of a lapse in judgement 18 years ago. If someone is a threat, than yes deal with the problem! But people are ignorant, stupid savages governed by their emotions( basically hypocrites). Government officials are supposed to be impartial, leaders and pillars in community..not profit driven cowards with no cares for the lives their decisions affect! GOD loves and pardons repentant offenders regardless of crime. And he commands his appointed to do the same. I am a witness to your lack of remorse, to your persecutionsite of his pardoned (by faith) children. May your mistakes and failures haunt your every step through life. No one should suffer to watch their babies parcelled out because of long repented mistakes.

I am a sex offender in a custody battle. In Highschool I was 17 and dating a 15 year old then I turned 18 and her parents called the police. You should really think before you paint such broad generalizations. I am not a predator. I was in a happy committed relationship. The majority of sex offenders were in similar circumstances.

What can you do when the courts are even afraid of convicted pedophiles, recently I seen a judge practically kissing the*****of a convicted pedophile of the highest degree on video and not respecting the mother to fight for her child's rights. If we can't trust these judges to make the right decision for our children lives, what is left to keep them safe. It is against Magen's Law and yet no one is supporting that.

I agree ! I'm dealing with the same issue, concerning my grand daughter. She was given to a registered sex offender and a very disturbed woman who is his mother. She advises xanax and alcohol, and is very mentally unstable! What is wrong with CPS, our laws, and the legal rights to be safe as a child ?? I'm angry and disgusted with this injustice. I am a sexual abuse survivor, and I know first hand what damage can be done to an innocent child! Change our laws !! Save our children.

My fiance is going through this very thing. After their seperation and his fileing or divorce his 37 year old wife had sex several times with her son's 14 year old friend during sleep overs until their daughter and her son caught them one night. Then her son helped burn down the principles house, the family was lucky to get out alive. And these are the people that the daughter is with. It's been over a year since he filed for divorce, his wife has been convicted and the judge have her a rider. She has poisoned her daughter against him and I so she does not want anything to do with us. She failed the 7 th grade last year and is failing it again. You would think the courts would want her out of that situation but obviously they don't care. And now just Monte away from the trial we are in desperate need of a new lawyer.
