TX: Appeals court overturns seven convictions for online ‘dirty talk’ to minors

AUSTIN — The state’s top criminal court on Wednesday reversed the convictions of seven men who were sentenced to prison for talking dirty to minors online.

Five men from Harris County, one from Collin County and another from Montgomery County are among the first to see their convictions reversed after a 2013 Texas Court of Criminal Appeals decision overturned a 2005 law criminalizing sexually explicit online communication with minors. Full Article

    “The court said the law was written so broadly that it infringed on free speech rights”

    I believe Texas is the first state to acknowledge this truth. This is a good thing and I’m glad for these people that had their convictions overturned.

    Wait! What’s that? I think I can hear the ill informed dummies screaming that the court is placing them in danger over there!!! Sweet! 🙂

    This came out of Texas!?! Wow I’m impressed. Glad the convictions were overturned.
