The legal fight over Virginia's law against sodomy isn't over yet. And it's centered around a case in Roanoke.
A three-judge panel has upheld the convictions of nine men arrested for soliciting sex from undercover police officers in a Roanoke park.
The court said the city had the right to crack down on cruising by gay men in a public park.
But the defense plans to ask for a hearing before the full Court of Appeals.
They argue that consensual oral sex is common among adults, and the law against it should be struck down.
