Appeals Court Says Nude Pics OK for Sex Offender

Posted on July 21st, 2010 No Comments

An appellate court in Nebraska has ruled a convicted sex offender can possess material depicting nudity upon his release from prison.

According to court documents, Jerry Lynn Simons, who has a history of sex crimes in Oklahoma and Kansas, must adhere to twenty conditions upon his release from prison, but the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out a nude-picture clause in a ruling Wednesday. The court said the clause would deny Simons the ability to view “a biology textbook” or buy works of art depicting nudity.

Simons was sentenced to two years in prison and 20 years of supervised release for failing to register as a sex offender in Nebraska after moving to the state. Simons’ release from prison is set for September.
