OK Bill To Track Sex Offenders With GPS OK Bill To Track Sex Offenders With GPS.

Oklahoma City -- A registry list already keeps track of sex offenders in Oklahoma, but a state lawmaker wants to take the idea one step further. State Sen. Dan Newberry of Tulsa wants the most dangerous offenders to wear some sort of electronic monitoring device in order to help police track their whereabouts. Offenders would be required to wear the device for as long as they are required to register. (that could be for a lifetime, folks)

Oklahoma currently has more than 11,000 registered sex offenders. Newberry's bill would limit the monitoring requirement to people convicted of the most violent sex crimes. Lawmakers will take a look at the bill when they return for the legislative session next month.

Contact this foolish Senator here to instruct him of our Constitutional rights:
