LA: Is this for real?!? Registrants arrested for not disclosing status on social media

August 6, 2020, 7:43 pm

Sometimes we come across a news story that I have to read twice to make sure I’m not hallucinating. Several news outlets in Louisiana are reporting that the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s office conducted a crack down on registered persons who were violating a Louisiana law by “not posting on their profile that they were convicted sex offenders, conviction information, address, and other information required by the Louisiana sex offender registry laws”.

REALLY?!?! Apparently in Louisiana it’s a law that if you have a social media account, you need to advertise the fact that you are a registered sex offender, post your conviction, where to find you, and other information.

We hear of a lot of sick and inhumane laws, so nothing should surprise us at this point, but occasionally something does. Having to put “sex offender” as your title on a LinkedIn profile really takes the cake! What will Louisiana legislators come up with next to one-up that one for the next election?
