Forrest City jury OKs porn sales

The Forrest City Times-Herald reports (sub. required) that a jury there Friday night acquitted two men and a corporation of obscenity charges for selling adult videos at the Adult World store at Widener.

The key issue in successful prosecutions is whether material violates community standards. This jury is apparently OK with the content of films sold. Next up: Clarksville.

The prosecution reportedly was pushed by County Judge Gary Hughes, whose presence prompted a request for a mistrial from a defense lawyer who saw Hughes sitting in the jury box while the jury was outside the courtroom deliberating. He reportedly was watching jurors when a door to their room was opened to deliver dinner.
