"During his probation, he will have to register as sex offender, receive sex offender counseling, and attend meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous. The sexual battery charge will be dismissed if Hunter successfully completes probation."

This is not right. He should have to register as a sex offender for life. What is wrong with the system that goes easy on guys who rape? Who was the judge?

How does this protect the members of AA (where he only has to give his first name and nothing will be known of this crime) and the neighbors of locations where these anonymous meetings are held? Think about it, a judge has said that a sexual predator can remain free as long as he is a member of an anonymous group. How does that make any sense?

Do the courts realize that vulnerable people, including young women and minors, are often referred to AA by therapists? How in the world will these people be safe from a predator who is sitting right next to them and gets to hear intimate details of their lives when they share?

Hearing stories like these would make me NEVER want to see one of my kids attend AA. It as become a gathering point for sociopaths.
