    FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT


    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 independent resource is not funded by any other organizations or grants so donations are always needed.

    If you wish to keep this valuable resource online, then please send a donation to Once Fallen today. Once Fallen must answer this
    lawsuit, no matter how frivolous, MUST be challenged. Therefore, your donations are needed to help keep this resource from being
    shut down by Parents For Megan's Law (aka "Crime Victims Center, Inc.), a vigilante group based in Ronkonkoma, NY. PFML is
    responsible for harassment campaigns against registered citizens under the guise of performing address verifications of Suffolk
    County's registered citizens. I won't let these terrorists win.

    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."

    Perhaps one of the most stressful experiences we face as those forced to register as “sex offenders” is having a uniformed member of law enforcement
    coming to your house to perform a “compliance check” or “address verification” operation. This survey is designed to gauge the experiences of
    registered citizens or their loved ones while subjected to one of these “random” compliance/ address checks. QUALIFICATIONS: You must be either a
    registered citizen OR someone living with a registered citizen AND experienced an at-home or at-work compliance check at least once since being forced
    to register or, if you are the loved one of a registrant, have personally witnessed the check of the registrant. If you have NOT experienced an in-home or
    at-work compliance check, then DO NOT complete this survey. Cutoff date for the survey is July 31, 2016.

    "International Megan's Law" (HR 515) PUBLIC PROTEST IN OAKLAND CA ON JULY 27, 2016

    As of 2/1/16, HR 515 (IML) passed under "suspension of the rules." Days later, California RSOL filed a lawsuit in federal court to stymie IML's proposed
    passport identifier provision. On July 27, 2016, California RSOL is hosting a public demonstration in Oakland.  The court hearing for the IML motion will
    be at 9:00 AM in Courtroom Three of Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton, 3rd Floor, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, California, 94612. After the hearing end, everyone
    will meet outside at the courthouse plaza to host the protest.
    .
    KEEP IN MIND this is NOT a CALIFORNIA issue but a NATIONAL issue. This affects passports of ALL registered citizens! If you can attend, even if
    you live in Bangor, Maine, or Guam, be there if you can. I plan on making the 3000 trip myself if possible.

INTERVIEW WITH WIFE OF MURDERED
REGISTRANT

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. This interview
was intended to be part of a documentary but now
I'm turning it into a book.

SEX OFFENDER
HISTORY SERIES
ARM protest at Parents For Megan's Law
(PFML) in Ronkonkoma, NY
NEW!!!

APRIL 20, 2016

ARM hosted a public demonstration against
PFML, which is posed to renew a controversial
contract that allows this private vigilante group to
conduct in-person address verification checks,
which they then use as justification to harass
registered citizens and their families. They tried
AND FAILED to intimidate me and the other
protesters.

Tom Madison from Oregon Action Committee and
I give a detailed report on this newest ARM
demonstration.

ONCE FALLEN/ ANTI-REGISTRY
MOVEMENT RALLY IN TALLY

April 2015

Taking on Lauren Book and her victim
industry group was a monumental challenge
deep into hostile territory. But we went and did
what many feared could not be done, and in
the end, the Books ran from us like cowards.

This rally is featured in the upcoming
documentary 'Untouchable" at the 2016
Tribeca Film Festival.
FACT GUIDES ON SEX
OFFENDER ISSUES
NEW!!! ARM at the Miami-Dade
Homeless Registrant Camp

As a follow-up to last year's "Rally in Tally," the
Anti-Registry Movement visited the Miami-Dade
homeless registrant camp in Hialeah. The camp
has no running water or toilet facilities. In fact,
after talking with the residents at the camp, toilets
and TP would be the most desired items. Some
residents have tents and cars but some do not.
Camping gear, water, food, and clothing would
also be appreciated.  Unlike the days when Miami's
homeless registrants were forced to live under the
Julia Tuttle Causeway, the media and local
charities don't visit this camp. Out of sight, out of
mind is the mantra.  This place is truly "Lauren's
Kingdom."

ONCE FALLEN TAKES ON "CIVIL RIGHTS
ATTORNEY" LEO TERRELL ON DR. DREW

On May 4, 2016, I was invited to the Dr. Drew
Show to discuss the case of a teen facing a sex
charge for a silly high school yearbook flashing
prank. On the show, I was getting bashed by Leo
Terrell, a talk show host and attorney connected to
the OJ Simpson and the Black Lives Matter
movement. Things got so heated, I ended up telling
this chump to "stick it." Amazingly, even those not
on my side of this issue thanked me for telling this
guy off.
