The National Sex Offender public website

A previous blog post discussed the Massachusetts sex offender registration requirements. Sex offenders convicted of certain offenses must comply with Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Law which requires them to report personal details such as their names, addresses, height, weight and date of birth. Sex offenders who are classified as Level 2 or 3 must also provide fingerprints and photographs taken by local police. This information is not only available to Massachusetts residents; the National Sex Offender Registry makes the information public to everyone in the United States.

Massachusetts sex offender registration requirements

In Massachusetts, sex offenders may be required to provide certain information to assist law enforcement officials in identifying sex offenders and to reduce opportunities for commission of sex crimes within communities. The Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Law requires sex offenders convicted of certain offenses to comply with registration requirements within two days of receiving notification of their duty to register.

How does social media affect online child pornography laws?

Child pornography laws exist on both the federal and state level. Violations carry serious penalties upon conviction; even first-time offenders may be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison. However, while there are long-established laws making it illegal to possess, produce or distribute child pornography, social media is making it more difficult to determine what exactly constitutes possession, production or distribution.
