Yes Virginia, Teenage RSO's Have a Right to an Education Too!

A 13 year old Virginia boy is required to register as a public Sex Offender in 2010 and now in 2015 as an 18 year old high school student WTVR runs a story that he’s allowed to continue his education in Hanover County (my county) as if he shouldn't.

WTVR is known for running “Sex Offender” and Sexual Predator” sensational stories, probably more than any other Virginia news station in the Commonwealth, it seems they try to stir up issues, conflicts and “news”. 

This young man needs a high school diploma because the majority of Virginia colleges and universities will deny him admission because of the public label of Sex Offender. He will never have a career, just a job to provide for himself and a future family. 

If Virginia changed current law to notify all parents of RSO 's as enrolled students, the chances that the RSO student would be forced to drop out of school before receiving their a high school diploma are extremely high and a successful future for the RSO would be extremely low! 

Leave this young man alone WTVR!
