Montana Reform Sex Offender Laws: Advocating by Educating
Sexual Offender Facts
In 93% of child sexual abuse cases, the child knows the person who commits the abuse. Only 7% are strangers and as many as 47% are family or extended family. (National Sex Offender Public Website, US Department of Justice)
95% of new sex offenses are committed by someone NOT already on a sex offender registry. (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2006)
96% of sex offenders DO NOT commit another sex offense when released. (US Department of Justice)
Registered sex offenders have the lowest recidivism rates when compared to domestic violence, battery, drug offenses, theft, robbery, DUI, and assault. The only crime with a lower recidivism rate is murder. (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2006)

MTRSOL aims to deliver honest, accurate and current information to the citizens of Montana. We never accept or condone the sexual abuse of anyone. We are not a legal resource. Always contact an attorney or local law enforcement if needed. We are not associated with, nor condone any pro-pedophilia groups such as NAMBLA Girlchat, Boychat, Puella, or any other organizations of this nature. We do not associate with, nor endorse any political party. We do not discriminate against any ethnic background, religious beliefs, gender or sexual preference. The visitor agrees not to hold MTRSOL responsible for any damages that might result from using information provided on this site.
We have a lack of timely education that has left many families standing by, helpless, as a system has labeled, judged, and taken children, parents and siblings out of the family unit. We know that the nature of youth is to be curious and to explore. We, as a country, have not taken adequate responsibility for warning our youth and their parents of the illegal status of porn.
THIS COULD EASILY HAPPEN TO YOU!!
• Possession, receipt or transmission of pornography involving children under the age of 16 years is a serious crime.
• In Montana, receipt of one image of child pornography could result in a 10 year prison sentence.
• This one down load can create 100 images in seconds, which could result in a prison sentence,,, as well as a life time as a registered sex offender
• Forwarding child pornography to show a friend can result in up to 100 years in prison for distribution.
Montana RSOL is a voluntary group of community individuals dedicated to educating local communities about sex offender registration laws, what defines a sex offender, and the ramifications of sex offender laws on individuals, family and the community.
In a perfect world, the education necessary to protect and educate our society about electronic technology would be in place before the tools of unlimited access were placed in our hands. The rapid growth of the Internet preceded adequate structured, educational, and societal safeguards. If we believe the only way we can become a registered "sex offender” is to sexually harm a child or an adult, we are mistaken. We must educate our communities to understand the full ramifications of labeling people as sexual offenders, while protecting the victims of sexual assault or exploitation.
• We will advocate for a classification system that allows for monitoring, treating, and restricting highly dangerous offenders
• We will educate, create awareness, and increase knowledge of what a sexual offense is
• We will help empower the community to better understand the issues related to labels of sexual offender
• We will educate the community on how to protect our young children from being victims of sexual abuse and exploitation
• We will help educate our young people about the effects and outcomes of making an irreversible mistake through curiosity or by acting on bad judgment
