What does "sex offender" mean? A full explanation can be found here! (Refers to someone who has a background of a sex crime, whether convicted or not. i.e., Former Sex Offender. However, it does not include any form of what is generally known as sexual harassment (employment EEOC context))
Please explain LifeBefore, LifeDuring and LifeAfter:LifeBefore has been coined to refer to a period of time before actually committing an offense against another person. LifeBefore also is used to refer to some folks who have leanings (leanings are not offenses) but have not committed any offense. i.e. Minor Attracted Persons (MAP). LifeDuringDoes not mean we condone or will converse with folks who are committing offenses. LifeDuring refers to various kinds of help (Referral to lawyers, finding therapists, etc.) after a person is within the criminal justice system. LifeAfter is also a coined word to mean the time period after being processed by the criminal justice system. The Community Room has many resources or referrals for each of these phases (See "Topic List" on the right).
