FORT THOMAS, Ky. -- Northern Kentucky authorities say being on the state sex offender registry and Facebook at the same time got a registered offender into trouble.
Mark Steven Schlasinger was taken to the Campbell County jail after his arrest on a charge of failure to comply with registry requirements, according to The Kentucky Enquirer. State troopers and Fort Thomas city police searched Schlasinger's home and say they found computer equipment.
Kentucky State Police received tips that Schlasinger was on Facebook. Officers said they found an email address not listed with the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry and a Facebook account. Schlasinger was convicted in 2002 of first-degree sexual abuse.
Troopers said the investigation continues and more charges are pending.
