Judge Rules Against Rogers Panhandler Ordinance

The Scoop:
A federal judge in NWA has overturned an anti-panhandling ordinance in Rogers.

The NWA Democrat-Gazette reported that U.S. District Judge Timothy Brooks on Monday ruled the ordinance unconstitutionally violates the right to free speech.

The ordinance prohibited people from approaching vehicles in traffic on city streets.

A federal judge in Little Rock has previously overturned a state law that banned public begging, saying it was unconstitutional.
