TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Sedgwick County parolee convicted when he was 18 of having sex with a 15-year-old is fighting state rules preventing him from having contact with his children.

Nathan Walker would like to spend Christmas at home with his wife and newborn son, Noah, as well as his 5-year-old stepson. Instead he's living in a halfway house a few miles away.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1jEcjyd ) Walker has started a website dedicated to fighting the order from the Corrections Department's Prisoner Review Board.

Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay says Walker's parole terms include no contact with minor children except with advance permission from his parole officer and consultation with the sex offender treatment program.

Defense attorney John Stang says Walker's situation isn't unique for teenage Kansans convicted of unlawful voluntary sexual relations.
