According to the CNN news service, a new Louisiana law requires sex offenders on social networks like Facebook to post information to their profile indicating that they have been convicted of crimes like rape, pornography that involves children, and a whole host of other crimes.

I applaud this new law but as a parent I still rather turn to background check providers like Instant Checkmate to receive a conclusive answer

According to Instant Checkmate, the new law, effective August 1, is the first of its kind in the nation. The law is designed to cover any possible lapses by social networking Web sites and is built upon existing sex offender registration laws.

The CNN article, published June 20, explains that violators of the new law could face imprisonment with hard labor for a term between two and 10 years without parole and a fine up to $1,000. A second conviction carries a maximum penalty of imprisonment with hard labor for a term between five and 20 years without parole and a fine up to $3,000.

Even though the new law attempts to protect children, Instant Checkmate believes there are still caveats to the law. Sex offenders can simply use different aliases, or stay clear of social networking Web sites, therefore it is still recommended to turn to background check providers. Background check companies like Instant Checkmate are necessary to provide a conclusive answer regarding one’s sex offender status.

“This law is great in informing people, yet it is not enough,” said Kristen Bright, spokeswoman for Instant Checkmate. “Parents need to go the extra mile and ensure their families are protected.”

A sex offender search provided by Instant Checkmate is a simple and convenient method subscribers can use to ensure their families are protected, and living in a safe environment. Using Instant Checkmate background checks to conduct sex offender searches allows users to tap into multiple databases and sex offender registries.

By simply entering an individual’s first and last name and state of residence, an Instant Checkmate sex offender search will survey all of these databases, pulling out any information concerning the applicant relating to any sex-related offenses or any official registrations as a sex offender.

“I applaud this new law but as a parent I still rather turn to background check providers like Instant Checkmate to receive a conclusive answer,” said a recent Instant Checkmate customer who wished to remain anonymous.
