In that case, why didn't Texas try them for resisting arrest instead of for the crime of sodomy?

Matters not, the men pleaded no contest to the sodomy charge and then appealed to overturn the law.

And DA Chuck Rosenthal said that he didn't necessarily support the law (against same sex sodomy) but that he "had" to enforce the laws of the state (of course he'll still prosecute you as a felon if you are LEGALLY driving with a gun in your car as approved by the legislature).

Chuck Rosenthal (R) hasn't gotten my vote in years.
