A man who authorities said had inappropriate contact with a 12-year-old girl was sentenced Thursday morning, and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Jonathan Cisneros pleaded to false imprisonment and annoying or molesting a child and was sentenced to three years of felony probation, according to prosecutor Benjamin Ladinig.

Cisneros, along with two other men, was arrested in the spring of 2012, all three in connection with the same victim. Cisneros and Jose David Hernandez-Alecio were arrested for alleged molestation. Hernandez-Alecio was sentenced in September.

Two months following their arrest, the victim went to Planned Parenthood concerned she was pregnant. According to authorities, the victim (then 13 years old) considered Martin Morales (then 19 years old) her boyfriend. Morales was eventually arrested, and sentenced in December.

Why are people who are convicted as a "sex offender" the only ones that have to be punished the rest of their lives? yes, they committed a crime but to forever be doing time for it? Absolutely ridiculous. What will be next? Now, if you get a DUI, it's on your record for 10 years. Will that be the next "oh, you were 22 and blew slightly over the limit so for the rest of your life, you're going to be labeled as an alcoholic and have to be tracked". This is dumb.

Sex offenders are required to register because the behavior is considered predatory in nature and one that is likely to be repeated, creating additional victims. Registration requires that they register their address upon release from custody (and each time they move thereafter), so it can be monitored that they are not living near places where minors tend to congregate (schools, parks) in an effort to keep other young people a little safer. Additionally, citizens can check the online map that shows where offenders reside as an additional safety measure to protect their own children. Occassionally an older boyfriend (young adult)/underage girlfriend issue gets caught in the mix, which can seem a bit unfair, but overall, the goal is to protect those under age from older predators, who are classic repeat offenders.

Muggy, people have an irrational fear of sex offenders, it was created and fanned by the media. Most molestations occur from people who live in their own house.

If people want to look up sex offenders, I don't see why a private company couldn't start tracking convictions made by the courts. They don't have to track them all down all the time and provide a map of where they live, but you could look up people who are responsible for your children or who have recently moved into your neighborhood and see if there are past convictions for sex offenses. The other benefit to this would be that the private companies could provide much more valuable information by taking people of the database who didn't actually commit sex offenses. For example, somebody who urinated in public or some guy who just turned 20 and had a 16 year old girlfriend or something. The current system just lists everybody and so it has very little value.

Not to mention, legalizing prostitution would substantially decrease the amount of sex offenders to begin with as most rapists do actually prefer consensual sex to rape. This would also significantly benefit the safety of prostitutes because they could then be protected by law enforcement and gather with their Johns in a more secure area where they can get help if they need it.

While investigating the sex abuse case, police determined that the mother was a prostitute, advertising on the Internet and conducting business at the home. If you Google Martin Morales and prostitution you'll find the earlier news stories.

Thank you loonpt for giving actual facts to people who don't know these types of predators and that a majority of them are from inside the family unit. The media portrays these sick people lurking behind dark corners that want to steal your children for their own preverted reasons and they have nobody close to them. The fact is, people need to start looking at uncles, step parents, grandparents, family friends, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, etc.

Additionalinfo: criminals in general are career criminals who have predatory behavior as well, not just sex offenders so get your research done before you comment. You know what would make me feel safer if I had a child and some friend, neighbor, relative, or whoever tried to or did molest my child? My fist in their face until they couldn't breathe from choking on their teeth. No ankle monitor, no register forever. But I have a problem with this because the person has done their time, the time that the people and the courts have deemed acceptable for that crime. To rid them of their liberty because a society suddenly declared this crime can never be forgiven is ridiculous.

Muggy- All felonies are a life sentence of little or no jobs when it comes to hiring, getting rejected for a rental, and/or less oportunities, not just the sexual felonies. And they should be marked for life because the Garridos weren't the only ones to have gotten through the loopholes.

AZ2SB - But felons are not tracked for life, required to tell everyone in their neighborhood of their past, or told they can't be in certain places because children are around. Also, what makes a felony different than a misdemeanor? Just the prison time, that's it. Who decides on that time? People we don't know and we just play along with the game.

I have no problem with the sex offender program and neither do the majority of people. People do know the reason for these programs, and that is to make people aware of the potential danger of a child molestor living next door. What do you suggest we do with a sexual offender?

loonpt,
your assumption seems reasonable
Not to mention, legalizing prostitution would substantially decrease the amount of sex offenders to begin with as most rapists do actually prefer consensual sex to rape.

But a short research of Nevada crime statistics regarding rape says it's worse than average (4% higher).

I've met a genuine pedophile, they don't change, but they do take more chances and do more bad things as they age. That's how the one I knew got caught. Plus a therapist made the discovery with her patient.

Aren't we bogging the system down with not only prostitutes, but making people ticketed for peeing in a bush also register as offenders? Who here has never made emergency use of a bush?
In Huntington now you get ticketed for changing in/out of your wetsuit beneath a towel.

Khiggler: If sex drive were a factor in rape the number of 14-year-old boys behind bars would be staggering.

Rape and prostitution are not connected.

@Ken: The anti-urination patrol p-----s me off as well. Considering how hard it is at times to find a bathroom in S.B., no wonder so many relieve themselves in the bushes.

Bill is right, for a violent offender, it isn't about getting some, it is about control. They want to take something by force and keep momentos. Legalizing prostitution will do nothing for child molesters since they do not want sex with consenting adults but children, who again, they can control.

AZ - not all child molestors want to have sex with the children they target. There are different types of pedophiles. Some want to hurt, some want to strike fear, others honestly think they are helping the child and want to make them happy but are sexually turned on by a child. I'm all for legal prostitution but that won't stop pedophiles....like you said, totally different game.
