In the News: GA law requires sex offenders to disclose Internet passwords
A new Georgia law requires that sex offenders provide the state with their Internet screen names, email addresses, and passwords. The law, which takes effect January 1st, is being challenged by some as a violation of the offenders’ privacy rights. Although other states require convicted sex offenders to provide their Internet screen names and email addresses, Georgia and Utah are the only states that require offenders to provide their passwords.
