this is Robert gotschall.i don't know who you think you are hot head 1. but you need to get your facts right and not lie about me. anyone can go to the sex offender list website this is were you can find out the truth of me. yes I was convicted 19 yrs ago there is no other charges. I was on probation for failure to register out of south Dakota. I is low that people are so concerd about me that they have to lie and not come up like adults and talk to me.i will not lie to anyone and if you actually got to know me you would see that I am not the eval person all these people say or think.when people lie and start hurting my friends that is wrong man up or woman up. please quit putting lies into this

the funny thing is that the police have stopped to talk to me in front of the game shop and they didn't arrest me so that must mean something

Okay so you think that just because the government, ect. Says it's okay for you to be around kids that everyone should just forget your past? I wasn't even going to post on here but you really pissed me off.. It's my business if I decided to NOT take a chance on someone who once upon a time thought that anything you did was ok. I get it, you feel like you served your time, you shouldn't punished anymore, your safe around kids bla bla bla.. I don't care.. Things you do through out your life stick with you, And I'm sure every sex offender has said "oh I won't do it again" well you did something one time that most would never ever even think about doing. Plus freaking out on here..WOW.. Makes you look even more unstable.. Of course people are going to talk.. You messed up man.. you choose those actions you did and now you need to learn to live with the fact that people will ALWAYS look down on that.. I'm sure your friends can defend you but if most people hear "sex offender" and "kids" that's a huge red flag.. Rehabilitated or not I plan to keep my kids away.. And calling out other sex offenders ...again wow.. how can you compare a sex offender at a place children hang out to a truck repair business? I know you will respond to this because you seem like that kind of crazy but just so you know nothing you could ever say would make me feel better about you being around kids.

this is quentin roufley im a really good friend of rob's his like a brother to me. Like most of you dumbass I never wanted rob around my kids or near them. when I heard all that poop about him. because he was dating my ex wife and my two kids were there around him so I called dfs and the cops about it and they checked him out and came back and told me that according to records there was nothing saying he couldn't be around kids!!! Then I got ahold of rob and sat down one on one with him and talked about all of it. I told him what I felt and what would happen if he laid a hand on my kids. we talked for several hrs about it. from what I have learned and witnessed rob would never lay a hand on a kid in that kind of way it makes him sick and to hear others do that to kids pisses him off. from everything I know of sex offenders they do not respond that way and I have been around a lot of them. he has told me if I don't feel safe with him being around my kids at any time to say something. he has also made it clear that to set my mind at ease he would never be around my kids ever with out an adult around. im going to leave it at that if you guys still want to talk poop and run ur mouths before you talk to him and get to know him. then you can come to me and talk that poop face to face with me or michhelle or trevor zabroski we will have no problem talking to you about it or help you with any questions you might have.

Michelle, I am heartbroken that you had to endure this horrific crime of molestation. You were willing to name your perpetrator on this forum with no problem and let citizen's of MC know and beware of this man (which is your every right to do so)----AND, likewise, it is hothead's freedom of speech to inform people of Robert. Now, it is up to the parents of children that go to this game shop to decide if it this is a safe place to allow their children to be....or at least use caution. I believe most parents would want to know this information. No one should condemn you for this in any way. I would think Michelle would completely understand this too, being a young child that went through the pain of being violated. There is NO reason to say anything else on this subject. It is of known fact that most child molesters will be repeat offenders if given the opportunity. This is a small town----we look out for one another. I certainly pray this game store never regrets having this man hanging around----and, also to the Dad, that is OK with his children being around this man never has to deal with any regrets, either! It is one thing to be "forgiving" and another thing to be "stupid". Robert did something that will follow him the rest of his life---even though we may forgive him---unfortunately it is a serious crime one can not forget.

I apologize in any way that this is hurting every one involved the kids, the parents, and the perpetrators, What I think that hurts the most is the fact that we opened up this store for the children, I will not name them in the post, but I happen to care about children, ask my own, I sent some one to prison for breaking my sons arm at 6 weeks old, I sent my ex to prison for bring drugs into my home, I closed down 3 day cares for child abuse and neglect, I may not be the best parent in world, I have my faults, every one does, but to be told that I am not part of being a citizen of miles city or that I don't care, and that I would allow this to happen to any child in my store or my home is really disconcerting, I have a bond with most the children that come in here, In some cases I know more about them than they lead everyone to believe, they have faith an confidence and trust me enough with what they have to saw, I have come to have many of these children call me mom, we have children come in after school to say hi, get help with homework, and which keeps some out of trouble with the drugs scene or fighting scene that a few are struggling with. I would never allow any one to hurt any of these children, and if you have questions or concerns, bring your child in and come in with them sit down and talk with my husband or myself. I would be happy to talk to any one about anything they want to know. There is a lot of people that have been abused, mentally, physically, psychologically, and emotionally, and should never have been. I have even stopped it at my store between family members. So for someone to say that I would allow any abuse to happen and drag my family name and my store name through the mud is really upsetting to me, I didn't see any other post about other offenders going to any other establishments in town, so please allow me the respect I earn.

to whom it may concern if you want to believe everything hothead1 says as fact well here is a fact. that recidivism rate for sex offenders is 2%. yes I am not asking for people to forget but I want to move on with my life. the liars that have to say that it was how ever many times can say what ever. I am doing very good and there is no reason for this. if you want to know the truth please look up the registry for Montana web site. the people need to know yes you are right but to lie about it is on you. since you are not happy with your life you can talk about me all you want then you are not hurting anyone else. food for thought. don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see, check into yourself personally.

Robert Alton Gotschall, 32, is considered a Level 3 offender. Level 3 offenders have been determined by state corrections officials to be the highest risk to re-offend. Gotschall was charged in Big Stone County in July, 1996 with second-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to Big Stone County Court Administration. He pled guilty to the charge on Nov. 6, 1996. Gotschall was convicted of having sexual contact with a 5-year-old boy on several occasions while babysitting him, said Big Stone County Sheriff Joe Berning. &uot;The family found out about it and we did an investigation,&uot; Berning said. At that time, Gotschall was considered a Level 2, or moderate risk offender. He served four years in prison for the crime. Gotschall moved to Fergus Falls after he left prison the first time, and was arrested for sexual misconduct involving an adult woman soon after. He was then sent to prison again in February 2002 ( I Copied And pasted this information from the news paper in big stone county Minnesota)

The Montana Sexual or Violent Offender Registration Unit collects information about registered sexual or violent offenders from the registering agency, which may be a court, a state or local correctional facility or a probation or parole agency, or directly from offenders.

Users are cautioned that the information provided on the website is information of record that is reported to the unit and may not reflect the most recent residence, status or other information regarding an offender.

***Anyone who uses this information to injure, harass or commit a criminal act against any person may be subject to criminal prosecution.***

Also note the following limitations and cautions:
• The unit does not independently verify the registration information provided by the various registering agencies.

• Because the Registry is dynamic in nature, you should check the site routinely to ensure that you have the most accurate information available.

• The Registry contains identifying information and information about the offense for which the sexual or violent offender is registered. It does not reflect the entire criminal history of a listed sexual or violent offender.

Under 46-23-508 of the Montana Code Annotated, at a minimum, the public is entitled to the following information about all sexual and violent offenders:
• the name and address of any registered offender in Montana
• any offender registration information relevant to the public regarding an offender who a law enforcement agency has determined is a risk to a community’s safety
• the date of an offender’s sentence

The Registry’s online search makes photographs and physical descriptions available for:

• all sexual offenders
• offenders who are transients and cannot provide a permanent address
• non-compliant registrants, whether sexual or violent

Under Montana law, photographs are not available for violent offenders, unless they are transient or non-compliant registrants.

I am sorry that a lot of people felt that they could not talk to me about this but now to set everyone's mind at ease, rob has come to me and stated and agreed that he will not hang around the game store, but he will come in to purchase and sell items, so parents can feel safe and allow there kids not be stripped of something that they like to do. I just realized hothead1 tell your children hello for me. and hello there123 I do apologize that I cant place you or your children at this moment but we will do what it takes for parents to feel safe, we opened this store for the children and I am bound determined to keep it open for them as well. I hope that this clears up a lot, for everyone. So now that this issue has been addressed, hopefully to peoples satisfaction.

For any other matters that any one has or concerns, I will be willing to talk to everyone about them, we need keep communication open between the community for everyone's sanity and to teach our children that things can get resolved when talked about. I am in no way putting any one down, I have those same faults at times, we all do.

As long as we keep that line of communication open we can all work together and maybe make some positives before they become negatives.

for questions or concerns

reach me any time day or night, my phone is always on.

Thank you hot head, for bringing this to my attention. I have 3 gamers in my house which are about to be of age to ride bikes to town and play. No doubt the game stop "would have" been a place they "would have" visited if not frequented. I do not care about the courts ruling on the term of his sentence, our deeds follow us for life, and the only thing we really own is our actions. Some actions are forgivable, actually most are, but not the rape and molestation of our youth.
I am also opening a family friendly business in town this summer, and need to keep an eye on predators. So thanks again for using whatever means you could to bring this to our attention..

Way to go hothead i also have researched this disturbing situation, did you also know that robert as well as another sex offender here in town work at motel 6,Which is a no-no right there according to CSOM center for sex offender managament and federal laws. no sex offender will be employed at motels,security jobs, schools, nurses etc.

Hot head is correct He can say anything he wants as well as to anybody, As long as it's the truth. It's also called your first ammendment: FREEDOM OF RELIGION,SPECH,AND PRESS RIGHTS TO ASSEMBLY AND PETITION.

The police stopped and talked to you and never arrested you, what did they talk about were they bored, or did they stop to tell you to move along you were loitering in front of a place with children??

Conan6975 question He didn't touch a child and it happened 20 years ago that makes no sense. which is it??

To business owner i don't know who you spoke with at mcpd or dfs, there is no stipulation of being around children, it's a federal law

Megans law www.nsopw.gov www.csom nolo legal dictionary and montana code 46.23.502

And out of those 2,000 - 3,000 and some 51-52 of them live in miles city...lol. If ya look on the sexual offender website you'll notice some have not verfied their address....personally it does make me uncomfortable to know a level III is working in an a place where there are constantly kids around. I dont care how long ago the offense happened, or if he/she supposedly changed....noway would I subject my child to the chances of it happening to him or her. I cant always be there to protect my child but ill die trying....I hope your shop stays open, but we wont be going there until I know for sure he's gone and no where near that place
