Louisiana law extends sex offender notice to social media

In Social Media, Technology Issues and the Law on June 2012 at 2:16 pm

Fist Louisiana tried to ban sex offenders and child predators  from ever using the internet, but a federal judge struck that law down as unconstitutional.  Now, State Rep. Jeff Thompson backed a new law requiring sex offenders to state their criminal convictions on their social networking pages.

The law goes into effect in August 2012 and also requires sex offenders to disclose their address and describe their physical characteristics on social networking sites.  Per Rep. Thompson, is the first of its kind.

Rep. Thompson believes that this law is not unconstitutional because it stays within already existing notice parameters for sex offenders.
