NCRSOL needs to hear Stories of the Registry
People on the registry have a unique story to tell. Also, people on the registry have a right to be heard.
The staff of NCRSOL has been approached by an attorney with a specific request to gather as many stories about the registry as possible. The purpose of this is to demonstrate “how the registry impacted your life”?
The purpose of the letter campaign is to submit as many letters as possible to a judge to hopefully sway the court to overturn the registry or parts of the registry. But this task starts with anyone currently on the sex offender registry.
First, the criteria:
- You must be convicted of a sexual offense in North Carolina,
- You must be on the NC Sex Offender Registry,
- You must be able to provide your real name for the story, (we won’t publish your story online)
- You should provide an email and phone number where the attorney can contact you at a later time, (this information will remain confidential)
- The information will NOT be published online, on a website, or for commercial purposes. Your story could be read to a judge to describe “life on the registry” and how it has created barriers in your life.
- Your story must be completely honest. Do not embellish. Use as many facts as possible. (ie. Cannot attend family graduation, cannot attend church, cannot attend library, cant go swimming, cannot go to a McDonalds, cannot drive a bus, unable to use social media such as Facebook, cannot live in a house because of residential restrictions, people use the registry to harass you, the registry has been a tool to harass family in the home, etc…). Information where the registry has impacted you,
- Tell your story boldly of why the registry has turned your life upsidedown. Be completely honest about every detail, date, and event.
- You do not need to tell the story of what or why you landed on the registry. The attorney only wants to hear “how the registry has affected you” from being unable to do things or restrictions that have stopped your day to day routines that you did before the registry.
- We require your story no later than May 15th, 2020,
- Your story must be signed and dated.

Here’s an interesting twist on the SO Registry that I haven’t seen approached. Might make for some informative reading. Just go to this site and in the search box type in SO Registry.
North Carolina Criminal Law – UNC School of Government
“Incompetency and the Guardian’s Role”
News Flash!! I mailed a request under the Sunshine Laws and the Freedom of Information Act requesting any and all Documents, Maps, Information, Notes URL’s and any and all online sites that pertain to any and all Inclusion and Exclusion Zones that I as a person required to wear Satellite Based Monitoring for Lifetime am required by law to observe. This request was directed to The Department Of Public Safety, Special Operations Division. This office is responsible for SBM Monitoring of all Non Supervised Registrants.
I received a telephone call about one week later from a lady who works for that Division questioning me as to what I was looking for with my request. I explained to her at which she stated that there were no such maps or information that they could furnish me with. I explained to her that my Parole Officer had shown me his computer screen at one of my office visits while on parole at which she stated that it was not public information and could not help me.
Now how can they have Inclusion and Exclusion Zones that I am required by Law to abide by and say that I am not entitled to be privy to that information?
No Legal Advise expected, just wanted to let others in my place what they are up against, and that to try and seek any help from the very people who demand our corporation in a lost cause.( Thus are tales from the Registry)
Could the letter be emailed?
We prefer to have letters mailed. The reason is so that we may be able to introduce a real name, address, and signature to authenticate evidence before a court.
Unfortunately I just read the article yesterday and couldn’t meet the 15th deadline. I finished a rough draft, just want to read through it 1 more time.. Should I still send it?
I emailed one in per the email I received. Do I need to print it out sign it and send it in ? Not a problem if so just need to know if that’s what needs to be done
Is this for a new case or for the one Mr Dubbling is working on ?
the deadline for this project was May 15th, 2020. The article was published in early 2020.
