East Baton Rouge Sheriff apologizes for Arresting Gay Men over Unconstitutional Sodomy Law

This past weekend I told you about Baton Rouge cops targeting gay men over consensual sex. They were using an outed piece of a sodomy law to justify their means.

It was wrong as Hell and finally, the sheriff office issued an apology.

Sheriff Sid J. Gautreaux III said:
“to anyone that was unintentionally harmed or offended by the actions of our investigations.” The sheriff said that he had instructed his employees to no longer use “this unconstitutional law,” and that he was conducting “a comprehensive evaluation of undercover operations made by our deputies and will make changes to ensure better supervision, training and guidance.”

The sheriff’s office will be working with the Capital City Alliance to address the gay men who lives were jeopardized in this mess.
