YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Two sex offenders being arrested in the Hudson Valley for using the internet to prey on victims spurred Sen. Terrence Murphy to take action.

Sen. Murphy (R-Yorktown) hosted a roundtable talk at Yorktown Town Hall Thursday with elected officials, advocacy groups, and law enforcement representatives to discuss updating Megan's Law.

Recently, a level 2 sex offender from Ossining for possessing child pornography. A Katonah man was arrested for allegedly coercing a teenage girl through social media to engage in sexually explicit activity

"The digital age has been a boon for sexual predators. They can have instant access to a potential victim with the press of a button," said Senator Murphy. "The first step in protecting our children is to be informed. The roundtable discussion provided us with a valuable avenue for exchanging important information about sexual predators and how we can stop them from preying on our kids."

Murphy has proposed legislation that would prohibit convicted level 2 and 3 sex offenders from using the internet for life as a condition of parole.
