Attorney general Greg Stumbo has announced that myspace.com has released information on 68 convicted sex offenders from Kentucky. The offenders were found on the popular social networking site.
Stumbo's office says the data was turned over to state police
and the Department of Corrections to investigate possible violations by sex offenders.
Stumbo says that sex offenders have to register their online identities with state police under a new law passed in Kentucky this year.
Myspace has been faced with legal demands from several state
attorneys general. The site said Monday that it would begin sharing
data on the registered sex offenders it has identified and removed
from the site. About seven-thousand profiles have been removed from
the site nationally.
