In New Jersey as in most states, there is a sex offender registry that was created by a "Megan's Law." These laws were enacted after a 7-year-old girl, Megan Kanka, was raped and murdered by a man who had been convicted twice of sexual assault. The law requires all those convicted of qualifying sex crimes to register their whereabouts with the state and allows public disclosure of that information.
With easier access to cell phones and computers issued by their employers, employees in Milwaukee and elsewhere are finding it easier to send inappropriate message and pictures to their co-workers and others. Sending sexually explicit messages and pictures may violate codes of professional conduct and may even be considered a criminal offense in some circumstances. Recently, an FBI report has revealed issues of sexting among their employees.
