Sex Offenders Could Soon Have to Register Online Identities

Sex offenders are using the internet to prey on children, and some Kentucky lawmakers believe they've found a way to help stop it - bill that would require registered sex offenders to tell police how they use their computers.

According to police, sex offenders are meeting kids on the internet and asking them to meet them and commit unthinkable acts. Senator Ray Jones is pushing a bill to make it harder for offenders to remain anonymous on the web.

If this bill passes, supporters said it will help make sure more children are aware of who they're talking to by making it legal for sex offenders who fail to register their online identities to be slapped with a class "D" felony for their first offense and a class "C" felony for a second offense
