Judges have some discretion as to the disposition of sex offenders. In some cases, the case was brought vindictively in the absence of an actual offense. Other cases involve prostitutes who file bogus sexual assault complaints for reasons to which they alone are privy.
In the majority of cases where a jury deliberates reasonably and finds a reasonable verdict, judges may determine that the convict may never again contact any person below the age of majority in their state, go within a set distance of schools or the residence of the victim, required damages, or housing in a sex offender unit.
Repeat sex offenders may be held under commitment in SSO units indefinitely as mental patients as dangers to themselves and the community if they are so adjudged.
Rocmike why don't you create an alias as a sex offender?
