It’s happened! To be accused is to be guilty. 
We’ve been saying it for years – to be accused of a crimen exceptum is to be guilty. 
Forget due process, innocence and malicious allegations. Once accused, that’s it - you 
are an accused person. Now Ohio has made it law.

Revisiting Megan's Law and Sex Offender Registration: Prevention or Problem; Robert E. Freeman-Longo, MRC, LPC. 
Both convicted sex offenders and innocent citizens have experienced serious and negative consequences resulting from the implementation of the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, passed in 1994, which included national sex offender registration laws, and Megan's Law, passed in 1996, requiring public notification of sex offender release. This paper reviews the predictions made by the author in 1996 regarding these laws and the negative impact documented since their implementation.

10-year sentence for teen sex thrown out; SHANNON McCAFFREY, Associated Press Writer; June 11, 2007
A former high school football star who became a national symbol for the extremes of getting tough on sex offenders was ordered released from prison Monday by a judge who called his mandatory 10-year sentence for consensual teen sex "a grave miscarriage of justice." But the joy felt by Genarlow Wilson's family rapidly turned to disappointment as Georgia's attorney general announced he would appeal, a move that will keep the honor student behind bars for now. 
Wilson's sentence was widely criticized as being too severe, even by members of the jury that convicted him and the author of the 1995 law that put him behind bars. 
His case became a cause celebre that grew from local blogs and TV stations to national news shows and editorial pages.

Should repeat molesters be put to death? As election approaches, Texas politician becomes latest to propose much tougher state sentences. Lianne Hart / Los Angeles Times, October 11, 2006 
With the election just a month away, politicians examining ways to stop violent sexual offenders from striking again are increasingly calling for laws that would allow states to execute repeat child molesters. ... 
In recent months, similar ideas have been pushed by lawmakers in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and even Minnesota, which doesn't have the death penalty. ...
This year, Oklahoma and South Carolina passed laws allowing the death penalty for the rape of a child. Execution is also an option for offenders who commit certain sex crimes against children in Montana and Louisiana.

If two people accuse you, then you are guilty. They get compensation, you get jail; 
By Alasdair Palmer, The Telegraph, UK, 22/10/2006 
How could England's most senior judges come to insist on a rule of evidence so transparently unreliable as that? [...] Their underlying assumption had to be that allegations of sexual abuse should be accepted as true, even if there is no evidence to support them. The result is that the burden of proof is on the accused to prove he is innocent, not on his accusers to prove his guilt. People are regularly being convicted of sex crimes because that dangerous principle has been embedded into our law.

Epifora is a Montreal-based internet service provider (ISP), whose home page promises "respect for client privacy" and tolerance of "controversial speech." [...] 
On Oct 4, Epifora was notified by MCI Canada that its connection to the internet backbone would be cut off in 30 days for violating the "acceptable use policy" of Verizon--the giant US telecom that swallowed MCI in 2005. By Nov 3, Epifora's edgy queer websites were offline. An American corporation had effectively skirted Canadian law to censor Canadian websites.

Who killed Adam Walsh? December 04, 2006 By: Arthur Jay Harris, Daily Business review. 
The highly publicized kidnap-murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh remains as cold a case as they come, despite countless leads and years of investigation. Hollywood police consider it open despite the theory that the late killer and drifter Ottis Toole committed the crime. Toole confessed in 1983. 
But in recent interviews, two people who say they were at the scene of the July 27, 1981, abduction of the boy point not to Toole, but to another notorious figure: serial slayer Jeffrey Dahmer. He lived and worked in South Florida at the time but was dismissed by police as a suspect.
