Federal Judge in Indiana bans sex offenders from social media

25 June 2012 Categories: All Blogs

The Washington Post has an article about a federal judge in Indiana who recently ruled that a Indiana law that said sex offenders cannot use social media sites was a constitutional law. The court ruled that the state had a great interest in protecting the children. Opponents of the law say that the law is not specific enough because it bans all sex offenders. Other federal courts have ruled that these type of laws are unconstitutional. With different rulings on this area of law, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Supreme Court of the United States taking up the case in the next few years and determining what type of bans on internet use are constitutional.
