The parole laws in Texas for sex offenders after release from prison are so strict, reported CBS' Hari Sreenivasan, that ex-cons are not even allowed to register online profiles on social networking Websites. Authorities cross-referenced their list of parolees with user information from myspace.com and rounded up seven matches. "None of those arrested in Texas is known to have committed any crime," Sreenivasan cautioned. CBS followed up with in-house tech expert Daniel Sieberg who called the seven "the dumb ones who use their real information." He demonstrated how easy it is to log into a myspace.com page under a nom d'Internet: "Here is my fake page. I wish I were 22 years old."
