On May 20, 2010, Governor Perdue signed into law House Bill 571.
It made important changes to Georgia’s sex offender registry laws.
The majority of convicted sex offenders have convictions for crimes of a sexual nature; however, some sex offenders have simply violated a law contained in a sexual category.
Some of the crimes which usually result in a mandatory sex-offender classification are: a second prostitution conviction, sending or receiving obscene content in the form of SMS text messages (sexting), and relationship between young adults and teenagers resulting in corruption of a minor (if the age between them is greater than 1,060 days).
In 2006, Congress enacted the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act.
Most services offer digital messaging, while others provide additional services such as webcasts, online chat, telephone chat (VOIP), and message boards.
If the offense conduct occurred prior to June 4, 2003, the employment and residence restrictions will not apply to the registrant. The place of employment cannot be employed by any child care facility, schoo or church or by or at any business or entity located within 1000 feet of a child care facility, school, or church.
If the offense conduct occurred after June 30, 2008, then there are restrictions on place of residence and employment.
Members can constrain their interactions to the online space, or they can arrange a date to meet in person.
A great diversity of online dating services currently exists.
