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.

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."

"International Megan's Law" Pending in Congress
As of 11/22/2015, TWO similar bills called "International Megan's Law." It should be noted that even though these bills have not passed
yet, the SMART Office has added many provisions to the AWA guidelines without waiting for International Megan's law to pass. Still, it
would be a good idea to offer resistance to these bills:

Sex Offenders") Chris Smith (R-NJ) -- https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/114/hr515
