Kentucky’s Attorney General announces that his office has identified 22 Kentucky sex offenders who are myspace.com users.
This is in addition to the 68 convicted sex offenders that Myspace identified and provided to the state on May 24, 2007.
Attorney General Greg Stumbo said we are targeting sex offenders who roam freely in internet chat rooms.
Stumbo has turned over the newly uncovered names to Kentucky State Police, county probation departments and the State Department of Corrections, to determine if the offenders violated terms of their probation or parole by having a Myspace profile.
Kentucky’s new law, which takes effect this month, requires the state’s registered sex offenders to provide their “electronic mail address, any instant messaging, chat or other internet communication name identities.”
