Twenty-four years ago, Lonny Leon Rivera, then 19, was caught having sex with his 17-year-old girlfriend. He pleaded guilty to one count of oral copulation with a minor. Despite his legal troubles, he and the girl remained together and have long been married and he has had no further problems with the law. But he is still required by the state of California to register as a sex offender. Rivera has filed a motion to vacate the order placing him on the sex offender list.
