Take me off of this Sex Offender Registration list

Hi! I am a 29 year old male who was falsely accused of statutory rape when I was a minor. When I was 17 yrs old I got accused of haven sex with a 16 year old female. But the thing is I didn't have sex her! We have never engaged in any type of sexual activity. I am writing you because I have a family now and I am in desperate need of getting my story heard so that my name can be cleared!
Prior to this night, Latoya ( Name with held ) had been pursuing me for years. On the night that I supposedly had sex with her she had consensual sex with one of my friends, whom of which was also at my house. I later learned that she snuck out of her house that night, got in trouble with her parents, and ultimately put the blame on me.
During court, Latoya let her mother do all of the talking instead of speaking up and telling the truth. I could not afford my lawyer therefore he insisted that I take the plea bargain, otherwise I could have been facing a 15 year sentence in prison.
This experience has been very life changing even though it was 12 years ago. I am struggling to provide for my family (my wife and daughter) because I can’t keep a job, and as a result we keep getting evicted from our apartments/houses. At the end of each year, I have at least 15 to 20 W2's for my taxes because I keep getting fired. Continuously getting fired has been very frustrating for me because I have attended college for three years and I still am not able to obtain a job. The most devastating part of it all is that I have to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life!

The question that I ask is: What would you do if you were me? Would u be able to handle this punishment for a crime that you didn’t commit?

All I want Latoya ( Name with held ) to do is take a lie detector test so the truth will be known and my name will be cleared! I have made several attempts to accomplish this goal via The Steve Wilko Show, Judge Mathis, Judge Pirro, Tyra Banks but she has declined every offer and repeatedly changes her phone number.

I thank you in advance for taking the time out to read this. I also pray that this email has touched your heart and has moved you to help me accomplish my goal. I am more than willing to provide you with in depth details, because I have nothing to hide.

Please contact me if you have any more questions.

Thanks again,
Roshawn Evans

      Just look at the aftermath of the Jessica Lunsford case (See: http://www.operationawareness.com/whats_new_28.html ) where Jessica's father pushed tougher s e x offender laws forward (Jessica's Law) and then his 18 year old son had s e x with a 14 year old girl. The father, Mark Lunsford traveled the country, testifying before state legislators on bills that would toughen laws against s e x offenders that prey on young children. Now his son faced laws that Mark himself help create. Luckily, because prosecutors felt sorry for what the family has gone through and Mark Lunsford threats, Joshua plead guilty to a single misdemeanor with no s e x offender registration. This a prime example of how so many of these laws are based on anger and hatred to really horrible crimes instead of calm/logical thinking. Without looking at the other side of the argument and just saying to send them all to an island, castrate them, or line them all up and shoot them, we ignore the possibility that someone close to us, our own children may one day be subject to these harsher laws when we just wanted to protect them. I wouldn't count on your son or daughter getting special treatment like Joshua did either, unless you have some political pull that is.

      What is this world coming to? They were in the same age group! This young man was 17 yrs of age, and she was 16! Come on people! Why would he be a registered sex offender? They both were minors! In that case, why isn't she labeled a Sex Offender as well? Take Him off this Sex Offender list and let him live his life! Kids will be kids.

      I am signing this because I'm tired of the "justice" system ruining the lives of young men. Besides he was 17, she was 16!!! So even if he had sex with her, who the hell cares! WAKE UP PEOPLE.
