Sex Offenders Allowed To Join Facebook
Court says ban is unconstitutional.
According to NBC News, an Indiana law barring sex offenders from joining social and online networks like Facebook, Twitter and various chat rooms was ruled unconstitutional by a federal appellate court Wednesday.
The law that was originally passed in 2008 has now been struck down and accused of violating the First Amendment.
A Facebook spokesman told NBC News Wednesday that sex offenders already are barred from using Facebook, and that the social network's internal teams monitor the site for such activity.
