Childhood sex offender seeks a second chance
Whatever picture comes to mind when you think of sexual predators, it probably isn't Leah DuBuc's. DuBuc was just 10 years old when she was charged with molesting her younger stepsiblings. Now a 21-year-old senior at Western Michigan University, DuBuc completed her probation five years ago and hasn't had any legal difficulties more serious than a speeding ticket since then. But DuBuc is one of 37,000 people whose names and photographs appear on Michigan's online sex-offender registry.
