A convicted sex offender says he wants to live at home and he wants the court to approve it.

David Graham is a convicted rapist. He served his time, but because he's a sex offender, he can't live in buffer zones around schools, bus stops, churches and parks. He's suing in federal court in Tulsa to have that law overturned, claiming the state law is unconstitutional punishment.

"I can understand more if it was a person who was a habitual offender or a child molester or something like that."

Graham wants a judge to let him live at 88th and Braden while the case goes to court. That decision could come in a few days.
