“Your Life on ‘The List’” is a survival guide for individuals facing inclusion on the public “sex offender” registry. This guide
provides an overview of common laws Registered Persons may face after conviction/ release from incarceration. This guide
also provides useful information on finding housing, employment, travel issues, legal rights, and other advice and resources
specific to Registered Persons. This guide also contains a list of transitional housing programs and a comprehensive overview of
the sex offense registry laws of all 50 state and US Territories; the legal overview covers the registry, residency/ presence
restriction laws, community notification, relief from the registry, parental rights, and other laws applicable to Registered Persons
(complete with legal statute numbers). Your Life on “The List” is an indispensable tool for newly registered or soon-to-be
registered persons. This book is available for free as a PDF at OnceFallen.com. This guide was created primarily for prisoners
and those on probation/ parole/ supervised release who are not allowed Internet access. However, those interested in the myriad
of laws a Registered Person must endure will also find value in this book.
Founded in December 2007, Once Fallen has been a 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. Donations, however, are always needed to keep this
important service going.
Once Fallen operating expenses include website fees, costs related to prisoner outreach (stamps, paper, etc.), connectivity
through phone and online (answering emails, letters, and calls from Registered Persons, loved ones, the media, college students
seeking research, and legal professionals), and on the occasional public awareness event. Your donations help OnceFallen
continue to offer this website, the prisoner outreach and the other awareness campaigns available. OnceFallen is run by one
person so maintaining a site this large is a monumental effort.

ONCE FALLEN MISSION STATEMENT, DISCLAIMERS,
AND CONTENT USE POLICIES
MISSION: 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 offense 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 DISCLAIMER: The Anti-Registry Movement does not promote sexual abuse of any kind, nor
we do not work to lower/ abolish age of consent laws; we DO NOT affiliate, support, or align ourselves active members
of such groups like NAMBLA or "Boychat/ Girlchat" sites; 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-
We do not believe every person claiming to be a registry reform activist is indeed worthy of our support. Once Fallen
condemns the following for making numerous FALSE ALLEGATIONS against our site -- Michael McKay from
Registry Report and Lifetimes Magazine, Dwayne Daughtry from NCRSOL.ORG, TNF_13 (a self-professed pedophile
activist), Lori Hamilton of Oklahoma Voices, and former activist Mary Davye Devoy. OnceFallen stands by every
statement made on this site and does not support, endorse or tolerate individuals or groups that spread
misinformation, lies and false claims regarding fellow activists.

|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.
