New Law Makes Sex Offenders Use of Social Networks a Felony

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law on Tuesday making it a felony for registered sex offenders to use social networking sites. This new law tries to close the door to opportunities for registered sex offenders to arrange for contact between themselves and prospective victims. As the use of the internet has been expanding, more and more sex crimes are being initiated through social sites on the internet. This new law aims to force registered sex offenders to keep their distance from potential victims.
