Sex Offenders on MySpace? No Way!

Seven Texas sex offenders have been popped for using MySpace, according to Reuters:

The seven, whose profiles on MySpace had already been removed under an internal program to weed out sex offenders prowling the News Corp.-owned site, were arrested for breaking parole or probation rules.

The arrests, which occurred over a two-week period, come after authorities in several states asked MySpace to hand over information on convicted sex offenders.

The seven offenders had been convicted of sexually assaulting girls as young as 4 years old. Most victims were between 13 and 21 years old.

Not only were the culprits incredibly sketchy, we can only assume they were dumb enough to sign up using their real names. – Keith Plocek
