Louisiana orders sex criminals to confess on Facebook

Written by Nick Farrell



Even if they are already banned


A new Louisiana law has ordered sex offenders and child predators to state their criminal status on social networking sites.

Jeff Thompson, a Republican from Bossier City, Louisiana, says his new law, effective August 1, will stand up to constitutional challenge because it expands sex offender registration requirements, common in many states, to include a disclosure on the convicted criminal's social networking sites as well.

Social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace have a policy of deleting sex offenders from their web pages for years, but Thompson thinks that his law will cover any lapses by social networking sites. Thompson said he did not trust social network or Facebook administrators who were more likely to say 'Gee, I hope someone is telling the truth'. Instead he is hoping that sex pests will agree to the law and fess up.

Facebook applauded the new Louisiana law, even though it "will have no direct" effect on its service. At the moment sex pests are banned.
