    Alabama sex offenders may have to provide less information to police after a federal judge ruled two "reporting requirements" unconstitutional.

    The ruling, made by U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins, determined some of Alabama's sex offender rules are too broad to be enforced. Convicted Alabama sex offenders would no longer have to report certain internet information, such as their internet provider, email addresses and instant messenger names.

    In addition, convicted sex offenders would no longer be identified as a sex offender on their driver's license.

    It is unknown if Alabama's Attorney General Steve Marshal will appeal the ruling at this time.
