NY sex offenders now can’t play Pokemon Go

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this week that register sex offenders on parole will not be permitted to play the most downloaded smartphone game in the country, Pokemon Go, and other internet-enabled games as a condition of their sentence. A study published by Forbes shows that at least one fifth of all the millions of players are minors. The new restriction applies to all sex offenders in New York on parole, that’s about 3,000.
