  • Statute: Repealed 1978


            1913     Nebraska outlaws oral sex and the law to do so is the 69th to pass the legislature of the year, so that the anti-oral sex law is known officially as Act 69.

            1926     The Nebraska Supreme Court overturns a sodomy conviction based on a deathbed confession that the “victim” got syphilis from the defendant, the only known such case in U.S. history.

            1948     The Nebraska Supreme Court rules that, in effect, some victims of sodomitical assaults “deserve” the assault.

            1977     Nebraska repeals its sodomy law in a comprehensive criminal code revision that is enacted by overriding the Governor’s veto. This is the only sodomy repeal ever passed over a gubernatorial veto.
