A sex offender tries to make amends

George crossed a line that even hardened criminals and unrepentant murderers find repulsive. About seven years ago, he drove to a mall in New York state to meet a 15-year-old girl, even booking a room at a local motel. He was surprised and snared, instead, by a state trooper.

George was incarcerated for three years for possession and attempted distribution of child pornography. Needless to say, his crime tore his family apart.

In this interview, George, 52, recounts his life prior to his crime, his close encounters as a sex offender in prison, his attempt to re-establish family bonds and make new friends, and his constant fear that someone will “out” him.
