Just as registered sex offenders in many states must notify neighbors
of their criminal status, Louisiana has passed a law requiring child
predators and sex offenders to make the same disclosure on Facebook
and other social networking sites.
Under the new law, sex offenders are required to indicate on their
social networking page a "notice of the crime for which he was
convicted, the jurisdiction of conviction, a description of his
physical characteristics … and his residential address," CNN reported.
Signed into law earlier this month by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, the
new law becomes effective August 1. Those who break the law could face
between two and 10 years in prison, CNN said.
