Texas lawmakers working to toughen laws that police the daily lives of sex offenders are taking their fight online with bills aimed at social media and the Internet. "With the evolving technology and increasing number of cyber crimes and crimes committed against the vulnerable, the goal is to extend the same policy we have for sex offenders now to the Internet," said state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, D-San Antonio. "It's a good, old-fashioned case of being pro-active on crime."
