A federal judge says a Louisiana law that bans certain sex offenders from Facebook and other social networking sites is "constitutionally problematic."
U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson in Baton Rouge heard arguments Wednesday from a lawyer representing two convicted sex offenders who want to overturn the law, and from the attorney general's office defending the statute.
The law makes it a crime for those convicted of a sex offense against a minor or video voyeurism to use networking websites, chat rooms and peer-to-peer networks.
Lawmakers said it would keep sex offenders from preying on children in online forums.
The ACLU of Louisiana says the law violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Jackson said he'll make a ruling after final arguments are filed by Nov. 23.
