Vermont is considering a bill that would prohibit sex offenders from using an alias when posting on line.
Vermont lawmakers are considering making it a crime for convicted sex offenders to use false names on social media sites like Facebook, after one such incident was reported in the state.
One incident? I guess it doesn’t take much to get a law introduced in Vermont.
Interesting how Facebook has taken over from Craigslist as the main playground for sex crazed adults looking to violate children.
The bill under review would make the crime a misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in jail. The committee said it would continue to consider the bill.
So merely using an alias can get you up to two years in prison, huh? Remember the old days when you actually had to have an actual victim to get prison time? Of course, the U.S. does have an reputation to maintain.
