Blotter: Sex offender failed to notify law enforcement of Facebook page

SALISBURY — A registered sex offender was charged Tuesday with failing to notify the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office that she had a social media account.

According to Capt. John Sifford, sex offenders can have a social media page but they must tell a law enforcement agency how the page is listed.
