Jindal Offended By Court Ruling Law Prohibiting Sex Offenders From Social Network To Be Unconstitutional
Written by 

jindal-supryaLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is upset and offended by a ruling by U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson today found that a law promoted by the governor to prohibit convicted sex offenders from using social networking websites was unconstitutional.


In a written statement, Jindal said “Louisiana families should have the comfort of knowing their children are able to go online without the threat of sex predators. It’s offensive that the Court would rule that the rights of sex predators are more important than the rights of innocent children. As the father of three young kids, I will do everything in our power to protect Louisiana families and that includes appealing to the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and bringing legislation this upcoming session to fortify and strengthen the law.


“The internet is the virtual playground where sex offenders are trying to strike and prey on our kids. We must have the tools to crack down on monsters that are preying on our kids. If these predators want to search the internet for a victim, they won’t be able to do it in the State of Louisiana.”


In 2011, Governor Jindal signed the legislation into law criminalizing the accessing or using of social networking websites, chat rooms and peer-to-peer networks by registered sex offenders. The new law applies to registered sex offenders who were previously convicted of indecent behavior with juveniles, pornography involving juveniles, computer-aided solicitation of a minor or video voyeurism; or were previously convicted of a sex offense in which the victim of that sex offense was a minor.

Jindal has made punishing sex offenders a major plank in his legislative agenda frequently touting railing against sex offenders calling them "monsters".
