WELCOME TO WWW.ONCEFALLEN.COM!
       
    ABOUT ONCEFALLEN.COM

    Founded in December 2007, Once Fallen has been the leading reference & resource site for Registered Citizens (i.e., those convicted of registrable sex
    offenses) and provide useful information to those seeking to reform or abolish the myriad of excessive sex offender laws, from the public registry to
    residency restrictions and beyond. Once Fallen answers hundreds of phone calls and letters, visits with legislators, assists registrants in connecting to
    available resources and support networks, and provides analysis research on sex offender laws free of charge.

    This FREE and INDEPENDENT resource site is not funded by any other organizations or grants, NOR DO I EVER, NOR WILL I EVER, CHARGE
    FOR MY SERVICES OR ASSISTANCE, so donations are always needed and welcomed. In addition to this site, I also engage in demonstrations and
    other projects to assist registrants in need. None of this is possible without your support. I don't like to fundraise but inmate letters, website fees, travel
    expenses, equipment, and supplies aren't free. Even this website costs money for upkeep. Thus, your donations are greatly needed and 100% of
    proceeds fund projects related to promoting the abolishment of these humiliating and unconstitutional laws. (I do not pay myself a salary or buy anything
    personal with donation funds; see the 2017 OnceFallen annual report for services by CLICKING HERE.) There are many ways to support OnceFallen:

  1. Ordering something from the OnceFallen.com Amazon Wish List
  2. Making a Paypal donation to iamthefallen1@yahoo.com (or clicking the "Make a Donation" Button above)
  3. Sending a check, money order, cash, stamps, gift cards or other goods to Derek Logue, 8258 Monon Ave. #3, Cincinnati, OH 45216. [Note: DO
    NOT make checks/ money orders to OnceFallen, as this site is not an established business and thus I cannot cash checks in that name. Donations
    are NOT tax deductible, as OnceFallen is not a 501(c)3 charity.]

    MISSION STATEMENT, DISCLAIMERS, AND CONTENT USE POLICIES

    The purpose of Once is providing an honest education on the truth about sex offender laws and issues, and offering some support services and guidance
    to those seeking to reform America's sex offender laws. Once Fallen is not a legal referral service, nor can we provide legal advice on sex crime
    defense or appealing convictions, and any advice given is a solitary opinion based upon the personal experiences and conclusions made by the owner
    of this site.

    The ARM/ Once Fallen mission & disclaimer: The Anti-Registry Movement does not promote sexual abuse of any kind nor support or
    associate with any sites that do; we do, however, support positive treatment and support for those who offended so that they may live
    productive and offense free lives. We support evidence-based (PROVEN) methods of prevention, education and treatment. We  believe the
    public registry, residency restrictions, community notification, registry fees, GPS monitoring, and other post-release sanctions are NOT
    evidence-based and are ineffective as methods to achieving an offense-free society. Thus, we will publicly oppose these oppressive sanctions
    until these sanctions are fully abolished.  [CLICK HERE for a further explanation on what it mean to be an anti-registry activist.]

    ATTENTION OUT-OF-STATE FLORIDA REGISTRANTS !

    There are currently over seventy thousand (70,000) individuals on the Florida registry. In fact; less than half are actually physically present in the
    community. MOST are incarcerated, moved out of the state, were only here temporarily and had to register, have been deported or are deceased. The
    purpose of Megan’s Law (public disclosure) was to create, “notification programs so the public can be warned about sexual offenders living in the
    community.”  Florida’s registry is comprised MOSTLY of people NOT living in the community. If you remain listed on the Florida public registry, but
    are no longer residing in a Florida community, you may be eligible to participate in getting off the Registry. Call Warren for more information at 352-871-
    5008 (Please note this is not a OnceFallen project, but an independent project from a group not affiliated with this site that I strongly support.)

ONCE FALLEN: Origin (2006)

In 2006, I bought a Mini DV (Standard Def)
camcorder to film a documentary. What I ended up
capturing was a journey that led me to being the
activist I am today. When I first started filming, I
lived in a run-down sleeping room. I just lost my
last job and started collecting SSI soon after. I was
also fighting in court to keep my residence. I lost
my case but found a new apartment. i stayed with
my mom for two months, leaving Cincy at the end of
September and returning just after Thanksgiving.

After some issues moving back, I settled into my
new apartment, only to learn that the city was
looking to increase residency restrictions. I took the
fight back to city hall and won the right to stay at
my new apartment. This victory inspired me to
write my book and, a year to the day after my first
speech at Cincinnati City Hall, the Once Fallen
website.  This is the archive footage from my first
attempt at a film.

About this video

This is a video made by a grad student as part
of her degree program. This project is not
affiliated with OnceFallen/ SO Clear Media,
Arkansas Time After Time, or SOSEN, but
each group offered their assistance, and
features individuals from various activist
groups. Also contains clips used with
permission from previous OnceFallen/ SO Clear
videos from the Miami Homeless Camp.
RED ALERT! BEWARE OF REGISTRY FEE SCAMS!

It has been reported all around the country that people are calling registered persons claiming there is a warrant for their arrest and that they can
clear your name by wiring money. THIS IS A SCAM! Only the registration offices at the law enforcement agencies collect fees and you would
receive notices directly upon registration, NEVER over the phone and NEVER using money wires or Prepaid Debit cards.

Scammers and Vigilantes page for info on other scams and vigilante groups
