Sodomy laws in history, November 13

1759 — In the Netherlands, minister Andreas Klink is banished for life for having committed sodomy. He defends his attractions as natural.

1912 — The North Carolina Supreme Court upholds the right of juries to return verdicts of attempt to commit sodomy rather than for the completed act.

1914 — A California appellate court reverses a sodomy conviction for having "carnal knowledge" of Frank Love. It says that the term "carnal knowledge" can exist only between people of the opposite sex.

1954 — The Kansas Supreme Court rules that solicitation to commit sodomy is not an attempt to commit it.

1957 — A Texas appellate court upholds a sodomy conviction even though the facts of the case show that the arresting officer could not have seen what he claimed to see in the dark from a great distance.
