It's easy for me to say I wouldn't write to a murderer, but the girl I'm writing to now (haven't heard back yet but it's only been a week) is serving 30 to life for aggravated murder. On the surface that would be a show stopper, but she didn't actually kill anybody - it was one of those cases of being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person, and some of her actions in the aftermath unfortunately make her equally responsible in her state. I don't have the slightest belief that she would have ever even remotely considered committing the act that she's serving a lot of years behind bars for.


It's also easy for me to say I wouldn't consider writing to anyone who's committed a crime against children, especially sex crimes. Well I know of somebody (friend of a friend of an acquaintance) who's doing 12 years in fed for unlawful sexual acts with a minor. The offense? He had webcam sex with a 15 year old girl over an internet video chat site - a girl on the opposite coast. That's very, very different than someone who actually physically molested an underage girl, especially if she was participating willingly and there wasn't any coercion going on. Unfortunately for this guy the law doesn't distinguish between what happens "in the flesh" and what happens over the internet (and it actually makes me a little angry that we're spending tax dollars to lock this guy up for something like this for so long).
Are you 100% sure she participated because she wanted. We have many here that lately been sentenced of crime against children or teenagers, because they have forced them to do pretty nasty thing withthemselves infront of webcam. First they have scamed them, that they are another person, a handsom younger boy, then they have a "relationship" and get the girls to send normal picture, and then are asking agressively for topless, and there they have them. Then its threating to spread the picture/movies wich make them do really nasty things. One girl here even killed herself because the old mans threting of spreading of the pictures and continuing asking for more.
