Officials are now working with My Space to determine whether the identified sex offenders solicited any children for sex while active on the Web site.To protect children from sexual predators, Milgram urged parents to keep computers in common areas of the house rather than in a child’s bedroom, to monitor the Web sites they visit, and to warn children about the dangers of sexual predators.
Milgram called the information provided by My Space a first step and warned that other sexual offenders may still be surfing the Internet.

More than 140 sex offenders convicted in New Jersey had profiles on the networking Web site My Space, the state's attorney general said on Tuesday.
