Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Throws Out Improper Photography Law

Share This Article:

Ronald Thompson was arrested in September of 2011 for “improper photography.” He was later indicted on 26 counts of improper photography for allegedly taking pictures of children at SeaWorld San Antonio. Don Flanary, a known First Amendment warrior and experienced trial attorney, brought the case to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

In an 8 to 1 Decision on September 17, 2014, the  Court struck down a portion of the improper photography law, ruling that portions were unconstitutional and a violation of free speech.
