TRENTON, N.J. – Nearly 150 convicted New Jersey sex offenders had profiles on the social networking Internet site MySpace.com, with more than half either probation or parole, the state attorney general said Tuesday.
“We have the proof in hand to confirm the worst fears of New Jersey’s concerned parents and educators , that sex offenders are active on Web sites used by children and teenagers,” Attorney General Anne Milgram said.
The names of the registered sex offenders were turned over to the state after the Attorney General’s Office issued a May 21 subpoena. A second subpoena was served on June 29 seeking additional information from MySpace.
