It's a very tough call.
The son of a friend of mine got into some very serious trouble(rape),and spent the mandatory two/thirds of his sentence in prison.
He was released,to be on parole for the final third of his sentence.He's not allowed into parks,not allowed to leave the region(without a "pass"),must have mandatory counselling four times a month,must see his parole officer four times a month,must submit to "surprise" drug analysis(he committed his crime under the "influence" of crack cocaine)and is visited regularly and at random by the "high risk asessment" detectives.
The regional police chief publicly identified him(to "warn" the public about his presence),and his victim and her family has (understandably) begun their own poster campaign,and given television interviews,press interviews,etc.
So....the young man has a family,who,appalled at his crime,still love him and support him.The psychiatric reports indicate that the young man will not re-offend...but,if I was their neighbour,I'm not sure that would cut any ice with me.
Then there's the "misinformation" that gets printed...that he's a paedophile...and now you have the neighbours vowing to "hurt" him,to not let their children out of doors,etc.
His own mother turned him in to the police,he pled guilty,he's taken every prison course available,he's holding down a job, and following every parole condition.
Will his life ever be the same? Absolutely not. Will his victim's life ever be the same? Absolutely not.
Who is to say how any of us,as parents,would respond?
