Sexual assault? - October 19th 2009, 10:50 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm not meaning to be insensitive or to trigger anyone... This is a serious question. I was randomly looking through my state police website because I'm paranoid and, from time to time, I look through the sex offender registry to see if there's anyone on there that I know in my area.

Well, to my surprise, this time, there was.

It's a guy that my husband is friends with and he comes over to our house sometimes even!

It says that he was charged with "2 counts of 3rd degree sexual assault". I did a little research on my own, but didn't really get a clear answer as to what that means that he did...

What does the "2 counts" mean? And what exactly does 3rd degree sexual assault entail? If it's different by the state, I live in West Virginia.

I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me because, like I said, this guy comes to our house sometimes and now that I found him on there, I'm pretty uneasy about him.

What do you mean? He's already been convicted and served his time. He's just on the registered sex offender list for our county.

Oh.... Well, the reason that he comes to my house is to drop off clothes for our baby since he has a son that's grown out of the clothes that would now fit Kaden. So... He has a kid as well. Actually, I think he has a son and a daughter.

I didn't know that... Hm... My husband didn't even know anything about it until I showed him the thing that I found last night.

Since the original question has been answered I'm going to close this thread, but feel free to start a new thread if you have any others.

but just being right where you are, who you are"
