Iowa can't block sex offender from having smart phone

An Iowa appeals court has ruled that the state cannot prohibit a registered sex offender from having a smart phone. The court ruled the internet restriction was unreasonable because the internet was not used in commission of the crime.

The 23-year-old man plead guilty to counts of lascivious acts with a child and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse, and the internet restriction was part of his probation conditions.
