If you were dating someone who was a Megan's Law registered sex offender would you continue to date them?

He says he is innocent of the crime, but still, I don't think I want to continue dating him anymore because of the impact it may have on my future. Advice?

If I had children, and I found out I was dating a sex offender, I would break off the relationship. I wouldn't feel comfortable dating her, and having that risk as a possibility.

He was convicted of rape, he says he didn't do it.. I do believe him but, he has a record, which anyone can look up and see.

And yeah, if I had kids, it would be a definite no.. but I don't.. it's just.. what if I did decide to have kids? I wouldn't be able to, with him.

No. There's a possibility that the guy might be innocent, sure, but I'm not willing to take the chance that he is not.

True, and he might not be innocent... I just looked at my computer.. he cleared out my browsing history and such, but he left the recent documents.. apparently he likes viewing things with the word rape in them.. I am severely disturbed.

You should definatly break up with him then just looking up that stuff wouldn't be reason but since he's actually been not just accused but convicted of it as well, well lets just say he is more likely then not to be guilty. But don't break up with him in person it wouldn't be safe, phone or email would be best in this case.

Seriously? So he was lying about the no evidence thing?

Yeah, I should break it off over the phone.. x.x
If he said there was no evidence then he's really lying. If by some reason a crazy jury convicted him on no evidence, then he could appeal to a higher court. Did he do that?

Don't even bother asking him if he appealed cause you'll just get another lie.

And trials are also public record so you could find out what happened. Contact the court where he was tried.

Sounds bad if you find rape stuff on the browsing history.
He probably wasn't looking for self help books either.

I would get away from him, and fast.

I didn't even need to contact the court, he's on the internet. Convicted in 2000 of rape.
I mean that the trial is recorded... there is a person who sits during the trial and records everything said. So you can actually find out what evidence was presented, what the defense tried to argue, etc. If he said there was no evidence, it should have been a short and awkward trial.

I'd probably find it oddly erotic.

Why would he try to do anything to children if he was convicted of rape? Does being a registered sex offender mean you will commit all sexual offenses?

Sometimes when you're looking at porn you can get into some pretty crazy stuff, I know I've looked at my fair share of rape porn along with every other fetish under the sun. I don't think this is reason enough to dump him, though with his conviction maybe.

How did you find out about his rape conviction? Did he tell you?
