As I’ve said before, I’m not a big fan of North Carolina’s law that bans sex offenders from social networking sites. I think it does nothing to prevent unregistered offenders from approaching kids and there are so many ways around the ban.
Grant was sentenced on June 6, 2003 on a conviction of taking indecent liberties with a minor. He served a 30-day active sentence and was placed on 60 months probation. Grant registered as a sex offender in July of 2003 and is required to serve a 10-year registration period.
Again, how stupid do you have to be to be caught like this? If they say you can’t be around a school you make sure you’re not around a school. Why can’t you do the same with Facebook.
If they kept sex offenders behind bars with real sentences this wouldn’t be an issue.
