Appeals court affirms prison decision not to allow Green Bay inmate porn

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - An appeals court said it was okay for the state prison in Green Bay not to let have an inmate have pornography.

The Fourth District Appellate Court in Madison said no Thursday to letting Charles Downing re-instate a lawsuit, after a circuit judge threw it out.

Downing said Green Bay prison officials were wrong to confiscate books which included “The Encyclopedia of Unusual Sex Practices.” He also challenged the prison’s refusal to let him order two collections of letters to Penthouse magazine – and to put 8 other books that he wanted on a list of prohibited items.

The appellate court agreed that Downing had no right to sue over the matter.
