    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 purpose of Once Fallen is not seek any influence over "age of
    consent" laws or, as some erroneously put it, "normalize pedophilia" or sexual abuse (and thus is not affiliated in any way with alleged "pro-
    pedophile" groups like NAMBLA), nor is Once Fallen even part of that debate. Instead, Once Fallen provides the best available information
    on the case against post-conviction sex offender "remedies" such as public shaming lists, residency restrictions. Once Fallen promotes an
    "evidence-based approach" to combating recidivism through a combination of fact-based public education programs that do not rely on
    fear and myths about sex offenders, coupled with programs that stress healthy rehabilitation techniques and reintegration programs
    balancing public safety with the individual needs to those who are labeled "sex offenders."

    NOTICE: Nichols v US to rule on registering foreign residing RSO

    Issue: (1) Whether 42 U.S.C. § 16913(a) requires a sex offender who resides in a foreign country to update his registration in the
    jurisdiction where he formerly resided, a question that divides the courts of appeals.

"Beyond The Label"
SNEAK Preview

Sneak Preview of an upcoming project  titled
"Beyond The Label" by Once Fallen
Productions.

In 2012, a career criminal named Patrick
Drum killed two people listed on the registry
and was called a "hero" by many.

"Beyond the Label" seeks to seek the untold
story behind these gruesome murders,
showing the victims of this case as more than
just a label.

This is from a Sept. 2012 interview with the
widow of Gary Blanton, Leslie.

SEX OFFENDER
HISTORY SERIES
Once Fallen at Washington DC

October 2015

I went to DC to scout for a potential future
event when a fellow activist got the idea I
should try meeting some legislators while
dressed up in a Civil War era Union Calvary
Officer costume, so here I am "leading the
charge" in DC.

There was an ARM event planned in DC but
due to International Megan's Law, changes
had to be made because this is an
emergency.
2014 SHIITAKE AWARDS SHOW

ONCE FALLEN TAKES ON DR. DREW'S
BEHAVIOR BUREAU

O April 7, 2014, I was invited on an on-air
panel discussion regarding whether
so-called "sexually violent predators"
can be rehabilitated.

This was my third HLN appearance in a
year's time, and of all the interviews, and
by far my best interview.

For some reason the video was not
posted online, so a fellow activist
recorded it for me, so excuse the low
quality.

2015 Shiitake Awards VOTING NOW!!!
Since 2008, Once Fallen has hosted the annual Shiitake Awards, a parody "award show" that
spotlights the craziest sex offender-related stories of the year. While the awards is intended to be
somewhat tongue-in-cheek, it highlights the worst and most serious laws, politicians, and stories of
individuals using and abusing registered citizens and the struggles they face, from registration to
fearmongering to failed vigilante actions. Every year, dozens of stories are collected from across the
globe and added to the Shiitake-Worthy blog, and with help of a "selection committee," the finalists
for the Shiitake Awards are decided. But it is up to YOU, the voter, to decide who among the three
finalists should "win" one of the seven categories. This year, the Shiitake Awards is adding a new
category -- "Keystone Cop" of the year. Read carefully, be offended, laugh at the stupidity, and most
importantly, make your selection. Help me decide who to send a Shiitake Award letter this year.
