AG McDaniel Wants MySpace Sex Offender Info, but Unsure of its Value

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says he's glad MySpace.com will begin providing data on registered sex offenders to states, but he questioned whether the information from the popular social networking site will benefit Arkansas.

McDaniel said yesterday if it's just a bunch of names and computer IP addresses, it probably won't do much good.

MySpace balked last week when attorneys general demanded data on how many registered sex offenders use the site and where they live.  But MySpace said yesterday it would immediately begin providing data on registered sex offenders.  Arkansas was not one of the states that demanded the data, but McDaniel said the state might still benefit from the information.  For now, McDaniel said the state is waiting to see what information related to Arkansas may come from MySpace data.
