The dating website Match.com announced that it will begin screening its existing and new user lists for registered sex offenders. This announcement was made following a lawsuit in which a Match.com user alleged that she had been raped by someone she had met through the site.

Although the president of Match.com said that for years the site had considered include that safeguard, it decided against it due to the unreliability of the national sex offender database.

However, due to improved technology and database registries, Match.com will now be implementing the changes within the next two months.

A conviction for a sex crime that results in a mandatory requirement to register as a sex offender (Penal Code Section 290) can have life-long consequences that negatively affects your freedoms and lifestyle choices – such as online dating.

If you are facing sex crime allegations (i.e., rape, lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, sexual battery, etc.) that may impose a requirement to register as a sex offender in California, it is imperative that you seek the legal aid and counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
