Louisiana House Passes Bill Banning Certain Sex Offenders From Using Some Social Networking Sites
A revamped bill that would ban certain sex offenders from social networking websites is going to the Louisiana Senate.
The measure applies mostly to Facebook and Twitter and exempts news websites, e-mail pages and online shopping sites. The ban would apply to anyone convicted of a sex offense against a minor or of video voyeurism.
A federal judge overturned an earlier version of the law, saying it was so broad that it would effectively ban sex offenders from any use of the Internet.
