    ABOUT ONCEFALLEN.COM

    Since December 2007, Once Fallen has been online to offer resources for Registered Citizens (i.e., those convicted of registerable 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 independent resource is not funded by any business so donations are always needed. If you wish to keep this valuable resource
    going, then please send a donation to Once Fallen today. My PayPal address is iamthefallen1@yahoo.com, or if you prefer sending a
    check/ money order, see my CONTACT ME page for my address. I thank all who support this important reference site.

    Once Fallen. If you cannot attend the rally, please send a donation to help support those willing to go. You can send donations to Once
    Fallen, as all donations as of January 1 have been earmarked for this important event.

    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 service, nor can we provide legal
    advice on sex crime defense, 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."

    ACTION ALERTS

    This section spotlights a few activist events that are coming up in the near-future.

    PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: THE RALLY IN TALLY
    April 22, 2015
    Florida State House, Tallahassee, FL

    Advocates of sex offender registry reform will gather in a peaceful protest at the Florida State House in Tallahassee FL on April 22, 2015
    during the annual Lauren Book's 'Walk In My Shoes' event. The Rally in Tally is a joint collaboration among civil rights activists across the
    USA, from Oregon to Florida to New England, not merely as members of various groups or as individual activists, but in an act of solidarity
    under the banner of the Anti-Registry Movement (ARM). We seek to raise awareness of the sex offender law reform movement, provide
    educational material, and garner attention to our plights at a high-profile event that brings politicians, celebrity advocates, and the news
    media together.

    The intent of the Rally in Tally is not to attack, dispute, or criticize the efforts of Lauren's Kids as it relates to raising awareness and the
    prevention of sexual abuse in America. However, we are taking a stand against the policies of the Lauren's Kids foundation in its efforts to
    promote and lobby for Florida's "scorched Earth" policies. Lauren Book and her powerful lobbyist father, Ron Book, have pushed a
    number of harmful policies under the Lauren's Kids banner, including tough residency restrictions that forced registered citizens in Miami-
    Dade County to sleep under bridges, in abandoned parking lots, and even along train tracks and warehouses. In the past year Lauren's
    Kids supported a law marking the state-issued ID cards of some registrants with a scarlet letter, creating "pocket parks" to expand
    exclusion zones against registrants, and is currently supporting a lifetime GPS bill for all registered persons. In addition, Lauren Book has
    referred to all registered citizens as "monsters," "incurable," a "clear an imminent danger," and "ticking time bombs."  

    We cannot make the Rally in Tally a success without you, our fellow activists. We need people willing to travel to Tallahassee to present
    the Book family and the Florida Legislature with a visual representation of the unconsidered consequences of hastily-devised legislation.
    Registered citizens AND their families are strongly encouraged to attend. After all, we cannot hope to change the laws if we are unwilling to
    stand publicly for our rights. If you cannot attend the event, then we encourage you to support the rally attendees by making a donation to
    assist in paying for supplies and related expenses.

    Please email rallyintally2015@yahoo.com or iamthefallen1@yahoo.com for more information and to receive periodic updates about
    this exciting event! (This event is not affiliated with or supported in any way by the Florida Action Committee or any of FAC's
    members. Once Fallen is an independent agency and there is no mutual support between Once Fallen and FAC)

"Beyond The Label"
SNEAK Preview

Sneak Preview of the upcoming independent
film  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.

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.
