New Hampshire's state Supreme Court has upheld a young man's harsh sentence—which includes lifetime registry on the sex offender list—for propositioning a year-old girl over the internet. The man, Bailey Serpa, was 18 at the time. According to New Hampshire law, Serpa would have been guilty of a mere misdemeanor had the two actually had sex. But online solicitation of a minor is considered a felony.

John Lynch has signed a bill into law reworking the state's registration system for sex offenders, which categorizes the levels of their crimes into three different tiers. The law, which made its way through the Legislature as House Bill , takes effect on Jan. Those in the lowest tier can petition the court to be removed from the list available to the public after five years if they have a clean record. Anyone convicted of crimes that place them in the upper tiers will be subject to more in-depth scrutiny and will have their records made more readily available to the public. Response to the law — which passed the Legislature earlier this year and was all but assured to win Lynch's OK — has been mixed, although proponents say it is a step in the right direction.
