George in Texas
Currently those convicted of a sex offense in a state district court in Texas , presently on parole and do not have court mandated computer restrictions are allowed to use social media as long as any new identifiers are updated through registration process.
This doesn’t mean that sites such as Facebook will allow you to join or stay on the site for long.
I think that this, and other recent parole guidelines within TDCJ, are being driven by the court battles and victories in the recent past – specifically Packingham.
It’s encouraging to see the progress here in Texas but there’s still a great deal more that needs to be done.
