Law bans offenders from using networking:

Last week the state of Louisiana passed a law that would make it illegal for registered sex offenders, whose crimes involved children, to have social networking accounts.

As you may have read in the past I call this The Dumbfish Law because basically states like North Carolina and now Louisiana are basically trolling to see how many ‘dumb fish’ they can catch in their nets. Surprisingly North Carolina has caught a lot but I would imagine there are still many sex offenders out there who are using false aliases to have social networking accounts. Plus this law does nothing to discourage non-registered predators from preying on children online. However, if it puts even a few more sex offenders away I guess it can’t hurt.

Upon first conviction, an offender could be fined up to $10,000 and imprisoned for up to 10 years without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.

For a second or subsequent conviction, they would be fined up to $20,000 and imprisoned with hard labor for five to 20 years without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.

You would think that would discourage registered SOs from being on Facebook but I guarantee there will be some dumbfish that jump into the boat.
