The question about sex offenders made me want to ask this.
Should there be different levels of offenses for 'the list' of offenders?
A neighbor of ours is now 28, but 8 years ago when he was in college he attended a party. A girl was at the party and things got heavy.
Later, he was arrested for attempted sexual exploitation of a minor. That was when he found out she was 16.
The law here says that there can not be more than 4 years between the parties and his was four year and two months older than the girl.
He is actually a really nice guy who made a mistake because he assumed the girl was another college student at the party. Now he is branded for life as a sex offender. I actually feel bad for him.
So, what do you think? Different levels or an offender is an offender no matter what!

Yes, I think there should be certain criteria that one must meet to be put on an offender registry for the rest of their lives. I would think it would be reasonable to guess that a girl at a college party is college aged.

Level 3 offenders are considered to have a high risk to re-offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have committed prior crimes of violence. They may not know their victim(s). The crime may show a manifest cruelty to the victim(s) and these offenders usually deny or minimize the crime. These offenders commonly have clear indications of a personality disorder.
