Social Media Ban for Sex Offenders Thrown Out in Louisiana

The law banned some sex offenders for using social websites, but a judge says it goes too far.

The Louisiana law made it a crime for certain sex offenders to use social networking site, chat rooms and peer-to peer chatting.  The sex offenders that would have been subject to the law are those that were convicted of crimes against children and sex offenders convicted of video voyuerism or a case involving that charge.

U.S. District judge Brian Jackson through out the law after ruling that the law is an unreasonable restriction on constitutionally protected speech.

Governor Bobby Jindal says he will appeal the judge’s ruling.  Jindal says in his mind it is the judge putting the rights of sex offenders ahead of the rights of potential victims.  Jindal says he will be making sure the judge’s decision is taken to the next level.
