(Newser) – Sex offenders in Sweden can now have porn in their cells, after a ruling by Stockholm's highest administrative court. The judges told a prison in the northern part of the country that a rapist's rehabilitation was not a good enough reason to screen his reading material any more than that of other inmates. But some critics are calling the ruling downright dirty.

A prison psychologist says giving the Scandanavian scoundrels access to smut will increase the risk of assault for other inmates. But prisoners will have to resign themselves to 2 dimensions: Prison computers have a porn blocker, and TVs are still as nudity-free as Swedish TV gets.
