U.S. Supreme Court

Rabeck v. New York, 391 U.S. 462 (1968)

Rabeck v. New York

No. 611

Decided May 27, 1968

391 U.S. 462

Syllabus

Former § 484-i of the New York Penal Law, which prohibited the sale of "magazines . . . which would appeal to the lust of persons under the age of eighteen years or to their curiosity as to sex or to the anatomical differences between the sexes," is unconstitutionally vague, and it is no answer to say that it was adopted for the salutary purpose of protecting children.

Reversed.
