Falsely accused & wrongly convicted
My husband was falsely accused and wrongly convicted in 1984. He just found out that he is now required to register for the rest of his life due to a amendment to the original law in 2006.. We have been maried 12 years, and he told me about his conviction soon after we met. He has been on the registry for a little over a year. We are still in shock. He is completely devastated. I don't know what I want to do. Go or stay is what I'm wrestling with right now. True friends who have seen him on the registry call and ask what happened. Some are true friends, but many are not sticking by us. His family knows because they were with him when it was going on, but he is not close to his family at all. No one in my family knows yet. All of our children know except the youngest who is 9. Neighbors told our other children. I told all of them they best not tell my youngest or I would press charges for abuse on them. My kids love thier dad, but they are seriously affected by this. I am so pissed off at this registry. I just don't know what to do or how to cope.
