People v. Rollins, No. 2021 IL App (2d) 181040 (Ill. Ct. App. 2021)
Nature of Case: The Appellant had previously been convicted of sexual assault and was required to register as a sex offender. He subsequently took a photograph of a child without obtaining parental consent, in violation of state law.
The Appellant was arrested and convicted at a bench trial, and sought review of his conviction arguing that the statute at issue was unconstitutional both on its face and as-applied.
Holding: The Illinois Court of Appeals affirmed the conviction, finding that the statute was not unconstitutional under the First Amendment.
