LA: Sex offenders to face tougher registration penalties

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) – Thursday, Governor Bobby Jindal signed bill HB 638 into law. It toughens the laws for sex offenders and child predators who fail to register with the state.

Governor Jindal said, “In Louisiana, we need to protect our children and citizens from offenders of the most lewd and vile crimes. This law makes it a criminal offense and will require jail time for convicted offenders who provide false information and who fail to register with the state in the time frame required by law. Hopefully, these offenders will think twice before attempting to skirt the law.“ Full Article
