Christopher explains what it was like going from a well respected solder to a social pariah as a registrant in a small South Dakota town. He relates how residency restrictions have affected his life and the lives of his relationship partner. He also explains how he was rearrested on a technical violation and incarcerated. Unfortunately, this is all too typical for people on the sex offender registry. Most are not rearrested for another sex crime. When they are rearrested, it is usually for something like failing to report an email address or for failing to update a new address or new car. Despite all of the challenges of being on the registry, Christopher is coping well with the aftermath and shares his story in hopes that it will help others in similar circumstances.
