Sex Offenders To Be Banned From Social Networking Sites
House Bill 55 was approved by both houses and now awaits Jindal's approval. The bill states that a convicted sex offender cannot use any social networking sites unless approved by his/her parole officer. These sites include Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, webcam sites, and peer to peer networking.
If found using these websites without approval, the first conviction would call for a no more than $10,000 and up to 10 years in prison. If a second conviction occurs, a fine of no more than $20,000 and no less than 5 years in prison will be sentenced.
