A sheriff’s office in Louisiana is under fire from gay rights advocates for targeting men using an outdated law from the early 1800s.
According to a report published Sunday in The Advocate, the East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s office has been conducting sting operations to arrest gay men looking for sex in public parks.
Over the past two years the Special Community Anti-Crime Team has arrested at least 12 men under an unenforceable ‘crime against nature’ law deemed invalid by the U.S. Supreme Court a decade ago.
