"It is unsettling to suggest that only a limited set of websites can be used even by persons who have completed their sentences. Supreme Court overturned that ruling, saying in a 4-2 decision that the "incidental burden imposed" upon convicted sex offenders "is not greater than necessary to further the governmental interest of protecting children from registered sex offenders." In North Carolina, where 14,268 people are entered in the N. Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry database, civil liberty organizations have paid close attention to Packingham's case. The 2008 legislative package came about at a time that state attorneys general across the nation were raising concerns about social media sites such as Facebook and Myspace, hoping to protect users from sexual predators using the networks.
Even convicted criminals -- and in some instances especially convicted criminals -- might receive legitimate benefits from these means for access to the world of ideas, in particular if they seek to reform and to pursue lawful and rewarding lives." The state Court of Appeals ruled the law was too broad and restricted Parkingham's free speech. The 2008 restriction was part of a legislative package that Roy Cooper, the state Attorney General at the time, advocated for many years. Packingham argued that prohibiting him from using social media sites is a violation of his rights to "free speech, expression, association, assembly and the press under the First and Fourteenth Amendments." Packingham was convicted in 2002 of taking indecent liberties with a child. Though many of those sites now are more widely used by adults than children, the North Carolina law makes it illegal for a registered sex offender to access a website where he or she knows minors have personal web pages.
If coercion, intimidation, threats, and/or physical force are used, there is no consent.
If a person is mentally or physically incapacitated or impaired so that the person could not understand the fact, nature, or extent of the sexual situation, there is no consent; this includes conditions due to alcohol or drug consumption, or being asleep or unconscious, or under the age of legal consent, or unable to give consent under current law.
