|Shirley Lowery is a very angry RSO activist who tries to denounce the traumatic effects of childhood sexual abuse. She is known for her radical views on the murder of Jessica Lunsford and has personal vendettas against both John Walsh and Mark Lunsford. Her son is a convicted sex offender who is serving 3 consecutive 20 year sentences for raping his own 14-year-old daughter. She claims he was falsely accused.|
Shirley Lowery is an angry RSO activist and former CEO of SOSEN. She is the mother of a convicted sex offender. Her son, Anthony Craig Oliver, plead guilty to 3 counts of sexually assaulting his daughter and received a 20 year prison sentence for each count. He lost his appeal.
Lowery is best known for denying the traumatic effects of child sexual abuse and always blaming the victim for their abuse. She believes that the majority of people convicted of sex crimes are innocent or that the victim could have merely said 'no' and thus the crime could have been prevented. She has a personal vendetta against John Walsh and Mark Lunsford and claims that they are responsible for the suffering and pain that registered sex offenders must endure. She has gone so far as to insinuate that Mark Lunsford was responsible for his own daughter's death or that his daughter entered into a suicide pact with John Couey.
Shirley Lowery became active in SOSEN when her and a few others were forced to leave the SOhopeful International organization. She was instrumental in building SOSEN by lending support and being a mentor to the founder David Scott Coffman. When he left SOSEN he turned the keys over to Shirley making her essentially the owner as well as the CEO. In much the same fashion as she alienated SoHopeful, SOSEN, under Shirley's direction soon fell apart. After hitting the online sex offender community by storm by writing a series of scathing articles she submitted and had published on the American Chronicle website, her own SOSEN group began to grumble as Shirley brought embarrassment and shame upon them with her constant attacks on victims and survivors. In a late night clandestine meeting, dubbed a "throat cutting" by Shirley, the board of directors voted her out and subsequently locked her out of all forums and accounts. Some of the members feared for their own safety citing Shirley’s vindictive streak and are even now trying to rebuild a support community for those who want to protect child sexual abusers.
When Shirley was first booted from SoHopeful, the director, Carolyn issued a press release in which she said:
Shortly before Shirley's fall from power she released another American Chronicle article titled “No More Victims Act 2007”. She requested all RSO activists to post it everywhere, "even if they didn't understand the politics of it". It was found to be an almost exact duplicate of a plan for activism first proposed by Dylan Thomas of BoyChat.
