BATON ROUGE, La. — In less than two weeks, soliciting oral and anal sex won't be considered a felony in the state of Louisiana.

Most might be blown away hearing that the state still limits sex acts, but they have been on the books since the early 1800s, even a number of years before it achieved statehood.

Legislation initiated by state Sen. Jean Paul J. Morrell decriminalized the crimes from felony to misdemeanor status. The solicitation of “unnatural carnal copulation” meant longer jail terms and the branding of “sex offender” on state-issued driver’s licenses.

But there still is a price to pay if cited for some back-door action.

Starting Aug. 1, offenders can face up to six months in jail and a maximum of $500 for anything other than vaginal intercourse. Two convictions though still get the offender labeled with being a sex offender.
