Should a convicted sex offender get full custody of his child?

Posted by   + Show Post

The Stir has an article about a mom who lost custody of her 6 year old daughter to a registered sex offender. The sex offender is the girls biological father and the womans ex-husband. He did serve his time BUT he went to prison for assaulting his 6 YEAR OLD step daughter.

The author suggests that the mom should take her child and run rather than turning her over to a convicted pedophile.

What do you think? Do you think it is safe to give give full custody to a convicted sex offender?

If you were in that situation, would you turn your child over or run?

the only that would be true was if he was on parole and it was a stipulation of his release. or if he was at a school or park  without his daughter.

Quoting GleeFan:

Wow, I read that article linked and I cannot believe a judge would allow that.

I understand doing your time, but he is a registered sex offender for a reason. If he was around other children, wouldn't that be a violation of his probation, assuming he is on probation, so why is this different? 

I have to say, that if it meant keeping my child safe, then yes, I would refuse to turn my child over and in extreme cirmcumstances, run.

 I would never turn my kids over to someone I knew was a threat to them, I would run if necessary.

No way should he get custody

No a sex offender should never get full custody that is just sick.  I would run and never look back. What judge would ever give custody of a child to a sex offender?  I think that judge needs to be evaluated something is definitely wrong.

The mom would have to have some pretty big issues herself if she is losing custody
