LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Indiana will not pursue a court battle to implement a state law that bans sex offenders from sites such as Facebook. A federal appeals court said it was too broad and violated freedom of speech.
State lawmakers are working to rewrite the law.
A Senate committee has approved an amended version that applies only to offenders convicted of child-related sex crimes who knowingly use social networks, instant messaging, or chat rooms to communicate with children.
