DIGEST OF SB92 (Updated February 23, 2009 7:04 pm - DI 84)
Sex offenders and the Internet. Requires a sex offender who has been convicted of child solicitation, child seduction, or child exploitation (including possession of child pornography), as a condition of parole, a condition of probation, or as part of the sex offender's sentence, to permit: (1) the search of the person's personal computer at any time; and (2) the installation on the person's personal computer or device with Internet capability, at the person's expense, of one or more hardware or software systems to monitor Internet usage. Provides that the search of the computer must be conducted in a manner that interferes as little as practicable with the legitimate use of the computer, while still allowing a reliable determination of whether the person has committed a crime or violated a condition of probation or parole. Provides that a person who knowingly or intentionally refuses to permit a search of the person's computer or the installation of a monitoring device on the person's computer imposed as a part of the person's sentence may be found to be in indirect contempt of court. Specifies the court in which a petition to remove the designation as a sexually violent predator or an offender against children must be filed, and provides that the petitioner has the burden of proving that the designation should be removed. Specifies that, as a condition of probation or parole, a sex offender shall be prohibited from accessing certain websites specifically identified by the parole board or court as being frequented by children.
