Offendex: protecting us from the Innocent
Brent Oesterblad, the owner of a website know as Offendex.com claims that he is protecting us from criminals. Sadly, many of those he has targeted have never committed the crime of which they are accused. Adam Daniels is currently a freelance Broadcaster. He was shocked when he learned that there were mug shots of him on the offendix site. He decided to do a search of his name and to his surprises he found a DUI charge and have had various other legal problems. After contacting the company responsible for offendix the owner of the site started sending threatening emails and put him back on the website as a sexual predator. Many people have been the target of this website. Some of them have even been asked to pay a sum of $600.00 to be taken down from the site. As of today the FBI has launched an investigation but with such wide spread cases and the company’s frequent moves it may be a long time before they conclude and release findings.
