Megan’s Law violations cover multiple crimes

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I know you don’t print too many letters from inmates, but I really need for you to read my letter and feel the impact it would have.

I am on the Megan’s Law registration list, and because of this, hundreds of people have been classifying me as a pedophile, child molester, etc.

I have been in 14 assaultive incidents and everyone turned their backs on me.

The bad part is I am tired of assaults and explaining.

I have never been convicted of any sexual charges with anyone under 18. All of my convictions, two, involve adults. One was for solicitation and another in 2009 for indecent assault.

But because I am on the Megan’s Law list for it, people assume I am a child molester. They don’t know Megan’s law is for offenders with adult victims.

I really need for you to express this by printing my letter to the editor. I have a sworn affidavit and also permission from the warden to write.

Dale Metrocavige,

inmate,

Lawrence County jail
