Am in shock. but my question is - Do you think anyone who commits any sort of sex crime should be put on the sex offenders "register"

First, I've name-changed so this isnt linked to my normal account

I have just found out that someone I see on a regular basis (I am purposely not explaining the relationship to remain as anonymous as possible) has just been convicted of indecent assault. Apparently they were hoping noone would find out hmm

I have been a victim of rape, I don't know if I can see this person again. And apart from being shocked about the crime, I am appalled (maybe even discusted wink ) that they will escape being put on the sex offenders register, as their crime was not "serious" enough.

Am I just biased because of my experience? I think if someone can sexually assault someone else, they are more than capable of rape, just without the opportunity.

What do you think?

Re the sex register, I just think this person (and other similar situations) would take it more seriously if what they did was classed as a sex crime and punished as such.
