CT should not require sex offenders to register web IDs | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

NEW HAVEN — A federal judge has ruled that a Connecticut requirement for convicted sex offenders to provide state police with all their internet identifications is unconstitutional.

“Although the state is right that it has an important government interest in detecting and deterring sex offenders from using the internet to engage in crime, the state falls short in showing that compelling sex offenders to report all their internet communication identifiers actually advances this interest,” U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer ruled.

Meyer’s decision came in the case of a former New York lawyer, James Cornelio, who now lives in Connecticut and is a convicted sex offender. Cornelio sued Connecticut and the state police after he was arrested for not providing his email address.

In his lawsuit, Cornelio did not seek specific money damages, but requested the judge to issue an order to prevent enforcement of the disclosure law against Cornelio and the disclosure law against all other sex offenders.
