There Are Nearly 1 Million Americans on a Sex Offense Registry. These Are Their Stories.

Lives on the Registry: “I’m not the monster my criminal record makes me out to be.” – David M Story

David M shares his experiences of living on the registry, the therapeutic power of pets, and his personal connection to a major historical event. His story is illustrative of how technical violations often lead to reincarcerations. When asked what would be the one thing he’d like people to know about him, he replied, “I just want people to know I’m not the monster that my criminal record makes me out to be.”

Lives on the Registry is a NARSOL project with one mission: to tell the stories of the one million-plus people listed on sexual offense registries across the US. We focus on their stories, their families, and their struggles to reintegrate back into a society that is often indifferent or hostile. We shed light on the oppressive laws that put people on this unconstitutional blacklist and keep many of them there for the rest of their lives without any hope of being removed, no matter how much they’ve changed or improved their own lives and the well-being of the community.

NARSOL is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization exclusively dedicated to defending the constitutional liberties of registered citizens and their families. NARSOL opposes dehumanizing registries and works to eliminate discrimination, banishment, and vigilantism against persons accused or convicted of sexual offenses through the use of impact litigation, public education, legislative advocacy, and media outreach in order to reintegrate and reconcile affected individuals and restore their constitutional rights.
