Attorney General wants rehearing on James Beine case


May 4, 2005

Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon says he will request a re-hearing of the James Beine case before the state Supreme Court. The high court overturned an earlier conviction against Beine, who'd been accused of exposing himself to three boys in a school restroom. The justices said Missouri's law, on sexual misconduct, is too broad and could wrongly accuse people who are simply going to the bathroom in a public place. Nixon thinks the law is clear and says its never been used to wrongly accuse anyone.
