ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A convicted rapist will have to return to prison after the New Mexico court of appeals upheld a decision saying owning R-rated movies violated the terms of his probation.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1IeOgjr ) that the court upheld a decision by state District Judge Angela Jewell of Albuquerque to revoke the probation of Robert Dinapoli for possessing DVDs of the American and Swedish versions of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and a third R-rated movie. He was prohibited from having “sexually oriented” material.

All three films contained what probation officers said were graphic depictions of rape.

Dinapoli was sentenced in 1994 to 30 years in prison for kidnapping and assaulting two women. He was released on five years’ probation in 2011. He returned to prison in 2012 because of the DVDs.
