  • Convicted doesn't exactly mean they did it.

  • Would depend on what they did. The only ones I don't believe can change are the sex offenders

  • Do you think a convicted fellon can change? Yes

    Would you marry one? Yes i would if i wasn't already married and then i fell in love with one. & if i felt comfortable with him being around my children.

    Would you allow them around your children? depends on what the offense was & how well i knew him, if i felt comfortable, etc.


    Would you trust them? yes, if i got to know him well enough, i could eventually trust him

    Why would you or wouldn't you? because i just believe people can change and that people make mistakes.

  • Anyone can change, it's a matter of risk assessment. What kind of felony? If it is sexual, or violent in any way..they would have to find someone besides me to trust them. Would I willingly expose my children to them...a teenager maybe, for a relity check. It would be unlikely that I would persue a relationship with a felon, but I do believe people can clean up their life.

    depends on the person some can some can't I know plenty that have changed and I know plenty that haven't !

    Would you marry one? that is hard to say yes I married one but I know the whole story behind his

    Would you allow them around your children? Depends I have convicted felons for family some of them I refuse to acknowledge at all other baby sit for me lol it depends on how they are doing I do not put my children at risk but I also look at how they have or are betteing themselves not just at their past
    Would you trust them? trust is earned no the day they get out I wouldn't say hey heres my keys and kids and purse but I would give them a chance to prove they have or are chaging
    Why would you or wouldn't you?I would because I grew up that way lol I have been around felons my whole life not my parents but cousins aunts uncles etc. I think that anyone can change if they wan

  • What did they do? Rape? Murder? NO
    Would you marry one? yes
    Would you allow them around your children? yes, as I said, if it wasn't rape or murder
    Would you trust them? sure
    Obviously this would be situational. I would have to know everything about what they did, why, and how they have changed. A young guys stupid mistakes don't necessarily mean they can't grow into good men.

  • To answer to all that is it depends. Everyone can change and not go back to their old ways, if they, themselves want to change and if they stick to it.

  • yes
    yes
    yes
    yes
    why would i 'yes' to four questions? because no two felonies are alike. there are tons of different offenses that can led to felony charges. and people can/do change. you're lumping every convicted/? into the same batch of whatever you personally feel is outrageously terrible and unforgiveable/reprehensible. you don't know for sure that the person you buy groceries from, or fixes your car, or fumigates your house against pests is not a felon. felons come in all shapes/sizes/convictions.
