Government Robs Sex Offenders of Their Privacy Rights

A Georgia law set to take effect on January 1, 2009 would require sex offenders to hand over their Internet passwords, screen names, and e-mail addresses to law enforcement authorities. This would allow law enforcement officers to read e-mails between sex offenders and their family members.

One concern about this law is that it delves deep into the offenders’ privacy rights.

Another problem is that the law is just another way for the government to punish people for crimes they have not committed. Some call it preemptive justice. Senator Staton wrote the bill with the idea that sex offenders have waived their rights to privacy. That is one way of putting it. As an experienced Orange County sex crime defense attorney, the more accurate way of putting it is that this law takes away privacy rights, without permission, and without prior notice.

You can read about it in this MSNBC report.
