BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A newspaper is reporting that an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office task force arrested at least 12 men since 2011 under a sodomy law that was invalidated a decade ago by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Advocate newspaper reports that the task force was trying to deter sexual activities at its public parks. The newspaper reported that the latest arrest was July 18 for a man who merely discussed or agreed to have sex with a male undercover agent.

District Attorney Hillar Moore III told the newspaper that although sex in public and solicitation for money are illegal, those were not part of the 12 cases. Moore says most of the men were arrested after agreeing to have sex away from the park at a private residence.
