NJ bill would shield sexting minors from Megan's Law
TRENTON, N.J. - January 14, 2014 (WPVI) -- Minors in New Jersey who engage in sexting would not be placed on the state's Megan's Law registry under a bill that has received final legislative approval.
The Legislature on Monday sent the bill to Gov. Chris Christie.
The measure also imposes a $30 a month fee on those convicted of sex offenses. The money would be used to cover the expense of supervising the offenders.
The bill would provide training for parole officers to determine if supervised sex offenders have illegally used electronic devices in violation of restrictions.
