FOX 21’s Dan Hanger is working on an eye-opening special series called “Sex Offender Stigma.”
Starting Tuesday night at nine on FOX 21 News, you’ll meet a Northland registered sex offender who has served his time and done extensive treatment but can’t seem to start his life over because of what he believes is society’s one-size fits all label for sex offenders.
“What I’d like is for people to understand that we have a situation where people have committed sex offenses who are trying to do the best they can to be productive back in society. And as a society, we can do a better job at helping them,” said man who is a registered sex offender in the Northland, and who chose not to be identified out of respect for his family.
It’s a special report: Sex Offender Stigma – May 12 through the 14th on FOX 21 News at 9 p.m.
