KNWA/FOX 24 -- Life as a sex-offender means less privacy and more restrictions, but do all sex-offenders deserve the same post-prison punishment and how does it help them?

"Those restrictions are getting more and more excessive," says one local offender, "It would be nice to think that when I'm, god-willing, 80-85 years old that I no longer had to go up every so often to the Springdale Police Department and have my picture taken."

Tonight at 10, in part two of a special report, Tyler Thomason sits down with this paroled man who talks about his crime, the time he served and how some - but not all - of the restrictions have helped him for the better.
