PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against a state policy barring most out-of-state travel by sex offenders on probation.

The case filed for four plaintiffs claims the policy violates their constitutional rights.

The four have been on probation for up to 11 years without incident and traveled out of state until the policy took effect this year, the ACLU said.
