As a criminal defense attorney in Harris County, TX, Matt Horak helps clients all over the greater Houston area who are charged with sexually motivated crimes.
His primary concern is helping them avoid any requirement to register as a sex offender in the first place.
The Keoughs said past experience helps them guide their parishioners. "I know exactly how they feel when they get lonely, when they get depressed, when they're scared that they'll be single for the rest of their lives.
"I've felt that way too." Helping others has become a calling for the couple.

Subchapter B of this chapter is dedicated to registration and verification.
We are here to help you grow in your relationship with God no matter where you are on life’s journey.
Through prayer, the sacraments, service, and teaching we strive to build a community of disciples here in The Woodlands.
The primary problem is that during the periods that they are required to register, all sex offenders are essentially viewed the same—even though the nature of their crimes can be remarkably different.
This means that a person could be denied employment or face residence restrictions simply for being guilty of having consensual sex as a teenager with another teenager.
The Ba Si C (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) meets on Fridays in Montgomery, the men's group convenes on Mondays at the Keough residence and the ladies group gathers on Tuesdays in The Woodlands.
The Pathfinders Fellowship also holds a 13-week divorce class at no cost, as well as a series on divorce care for kids.
Theresa Rosa, leader of the women's group, said the fellowship creates a family for single people.
