The people whodidn' listen to the counselor should be fired including those in the superintendent's office and DHS. In 2005, my daughter was violated by a repeat offender. It was reported in September and charges weren't filed until November because the DA "wanted more evidence." A year and a half later, we finally got a conviction. The violator only served 1.5 years of his sntence and was released early for good behavior. 16 days later, he began stalking my family by attending our church located in a school at the time. I reported him to police who were ready to arrest him the following Sunday if he showed up again. He did show up and the police arrested him. Not ony did he stalk my family, he also entered a church and a building, both violating The Safety Zone Law registered sex offender must follow. Athough he was arrested, the DA NEVER filed any charges. Here's why: TheDA dosn' tprosecure on each case in which he isn't almost guaranteed a conviction. This is so it doesn't effect his percentage of cases won during his term. Haven't you seen during election years, the DA's office will claim "District Attorney Tim Harris has won 97% of all filed." This system is ridiculous!!! And it fails our children daily.

If you think this is bad you should read the paper from claremore over the last 2 weeks. What do you do when you have told the law and the DA says theres nothing that can be done because there both under 18 even if they are 4-5 years appart in age

If it happens on my watch I'm saying that I'll turn it right in. I really don't know it's never happened on my watch. I can only say that I think I would do the right thing.
