The safety of our family is the number one priority for most people. It's important to know what or who is around the corner, which is why I think it's important to keep an eye on the Texas public sex offender website. While I understand people can change after making a mistake, personally, I want to be extra careful when around those who have been convicted of a sex crime. There is a map set up for the whole state of Texas to know where sex offenders are living, and it's open to the public to see in case you want to see that information as well.

Not everyone on this list or shown on the map is a bad person but it's pretty clear that they have made some mistakes and the court system wants to keep an eye on them as they continue to get back on the right track. My hope is for anyone on this list is to not make the same mistake that got them in trouble in the first place but that isn't up to me, that is a decision these individuals face on a daily basis.
