Online, In Public

The right to know versus the right to privacy.

A controversial bill regarding convicted sex offenders is making its way through the state legislature.

Lawmakers are expected to work on a bill this week that would allow sheriff's offices and police departments to post sex offender registries online.

The Senate has changed the bill so offenders convicted of misdemeanors won't be named online. That's why the House and Senate have to revisit the issue.

But some people feel posting registries online is an invasion of privacy especially for offenders who are trying to go through rehabilitation.
