Federal Panel’s ruling grants Indiana man access to “legal adult pornography,” which is protected by the First Amendment

A federal appeals court panel has overturned a lower court’s order banning an Indiana sex offender from viewing adult pornography.

The panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit rules Thursday that a probation requirement barring convicted sex offender Jeffrey P. Taylor (http://icrimewatch.net/offenderdetails.php?OfndrID=1618013&AgencyID=54848) of Logansport from accessing “legal adult pornography” was not supported by evidence in his criminal case.

The decision, however, has little actual impact on Taylor. His probation period ended Friday–the day after the appeals court decision was issued.
