CINCINATTI, Ohio — Phil Burress, the leader of the conservative Citizens for Community Values group said he would press state legislators to pass a bill that would make possession of pornography by convicted sex offenders a parole violation.

Burress, whose group launched a mainstream media blitz in USA Today to boycott hotels that carry in-room adult entertainment in August, said the link between porn and sex crimes was clear, although he confessed he couldn’t necessarily offer proof.

“The connection between the use of pornography and sex crimes, especially where it involves children is obvious though the other side always wants us to prove the correlation,” Burress said. “Sex offenders would be prohibited by law from possessing hardcore, obscene pornography. They cannot possess it or buy it in any way, shape or form. If they’re caught with it and if they’re on probation, then they will go back to jail.”

Burress said he hopes to convince his home state of Ohio to pass the law during the fall legislative session, which he believes will inspire other states to follow suit.

Len Deo, Executive Director of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, said he would lobby for similar legislation in his state.

“I think anything that can be done to enhance the protection of the public when it comes to sex offenders is definitely a good step to take,” Deo said. “We would be very interested.”
