OK, Let's Squash Another One, Here And Now
Nonce is prison slang - derogatory, somewhat offensive and inflammatory, but, overall, little problem.
Once released, such a person is no longer a Nonce.
The etymology of the term is debatable, but, you may start, here.
There are many people who steadfastly claim the label Paedophile, but, we use it, predominantly, in the medico-legal sense, so as to avoid dangerous confusion.
We hope this is now clear.
