Eyes have turned to Montana, as a federal judge in the state will soon rule on removing citizens convicted of having consensual gay sex from the state’s sex offender registry.The decision hinges on the case of Randall Menges, an Idaho man convicted of sex offenses in the state when he was 18 years old, NBC affiliate KPVI reports.In 1994, a court convicted Menges of criminal sex offenses after he was discovered having sex with two male 16-year-olds.

Though a police investigation found that the sex acts were consensual, Menges received a prison sentence, probation and was required to register as a sex offender.It’s important to note that Menges’ conviction had nothing to do with the ages of his sex partners or the age of consent.
