PLAN TO MONITOR PREDATORS ON WEB
A proposed Nassau County law would require convicted sex offenders to submit to cyber-monitoring of their online activities as a condition of probation. Nassau County Legislator David Mejias (D-North Massapequa) said yesterday that he would introduce the legislation Monday, and that it would apply to all sexual offenders. Laura Ahearn, executive director of Parents for Megan's Law, also attended the news conference and said sexual predators trolling for young victims on the Internet have moved beyond social networking sites used by children. Now they're doing something else, which is even more horrendous, she said. They're going onto adult, on-line dating sites, looking in profiles for single women with children and then targeting those women to get to the kids, she said.
