Online dating sites now check subscribers for history of sex crimes

Three online dating sites announced Monday that they will be screening their subscribers on the national sex offender registry in order to keep their users safe and prevent sexual assault. This rule was put into place after a woman in California was sexually assaulted on date found on a dating site.

Match.com, eHarmony and Spark Network all signed the petition in order to take a step forward in the their industry to protect their members the best way they can.

The petition does not hold any enforcement penalties, but does state that the sites are holding some account for their members’ safety. The sites will now give members safety tips, make it easy for a member to report abuse and screen subscribers on the national sex offender registry.

If you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with a sex crime, contact the Dallas sex crimes defense attorneys of the Law Office of Mark T. Lassiter by calling (214) 845-7007.
