One of the problems is it cost them nothing to do this to you. They use our money as well as yours { taxes } to fight you. Also contrary to belief you are guilty until proven innocent. For some reason people tend to believe if you are charged you are guilty. They tend to have a way to bend the facts in their favor. It is a bad thing to say but you would probably be better off to let it go.

Nebulous,

I don't have experience in areas pertaining to your situation. But I have been in some loosing situations and cut my looses and Damn glad I did.

I also know this from personal experience, you DO NOT want to be the guy they make an example of.

facing 30 years, cut your losses, move some where else, while its still an option if it is, my 2 cents.

Sorry

eeeek!!! 30 years is a hell of a gamble.

on teh plus side the judicial system is horribley slow. Youc an use that to your advantage. I am suing a former "emloyer/client" for non payment. I did over a 100 hours of work for this tool bag which amounts to about $3000. He never paid me a cent. Then tried to skip out my changinf addresses and so forth. This all started last february almost a year ago. I'v been to court 7 time and have to go back again this month and so far nothign has happened. I was granted decisions twice and twice he's appealed and had ity restored for a trial date. The court system is nasty especially if you can use it in your favor.

Quite frankly i dont; care abtou th $$$ anymore. Its arinciple thing. At this poitn after alleth agravation and bull**** i woudl be willgin to spend a hell of alot more than $3000 to get this **** burger. Once I finally win I am goign after his NY business liscense. Eventually I will win. I did teh work I had a contract he didn;t pay. But the question is is it worth it to me.


As to your situation. If you can still make good $$$ without erotica and get away from any legal BS i woudl avoid the legal system. Even if you win the court fees are going to cost a ton of $$$. Perhaps the up another smaller store specializing in just the erotica section. For the money you don't have to spend on defense fees it might be worth it. OR contact an adult film industry lobbyist. I know this is a huge debate right now (i saw an funny interview with ron jeremy on a local news show, aprently he's from brooklyn) and the porn industry is spending tons of $$$ trying to protect thier investment/industry. The south is a hot bed for these types of cases now.

Best bet avoid court/jail at all costs. Lock Down's a *****........

I understand the concept of cut your losses & run, But I also wonder where we will be if someone doesn't take that risk. YES it is one hell of a risk. I think of it every waking moment. I also think of where we would be if our forefathers had not taken that risk for which they blieved in.
"GOD SAVE THE QUEEN"
If I fold I WON'T be able to move & try again later. They will come after me with a vengeance! " Hell she closed once, She'll do it again."
The most important thing is that people use thier voices, Phones & Emails to let our gov't know they work for US!!!! I get so [email protected] mad.
The only reason & I do mean ONLY reason I even consider it is for my family. Hopefully they understand the importance of this whole thing. Luckily for me Nasty Does!
P.S. My Dad went through the same thing when I was a kid in the 70's & 80's.

Red face Stick it out

Hi! Hon! Rox,
I dont think a jury will try to say what is obscene or
not. You are innocent of racketeering, stick it out!
You certainly would be grandfathered- in by now.
Do you think you have a chance, what does atty say??
This is zoning problems, you have been there before
zoning started.

ps ...Got your phone message, we were in St Pete.

What a tough call. Because of the risk, I can see the cut the losses argument. On the other hand if you move they will find you. And if not you, someone else. Someone needs to set a precedent.

I would fight you hard if you were trying to move into my neighborhood. But, if I moved into your neighborhood, I would not have anything to say.

Best of luck.
