(ABC 6 News) -- On Tuesday, a federal appeals court overturned a lower court ruling on Minnesota's Sex Offender Program.  The state of Minnesota has been embroiled in a legal fight over the controversial program for years.

In 2015, Judge Donovan Frank ruled the program unconstitutional and ordered the state make changes; however, an appeals court said the state could continue running the program in its current state.
