ACLU blasts Ky. vid case

The Kentucky branch of the American Civil Liberties Union has condemned the indictment of a state video chain for offering to sell allegedly obscene videotapes to adults.

U.S. Attorney Joseph Whittle, who spearheaded the prosecution of the store, was singled out for wasting financial resources in his investigation of the chain, Roadrunner Video Enterprises, which operates 21 stores in the Louisville area.

The ACLU claimed jurors will be “forced to answer … impossibly vague and subjective questions,” referring to the standards of obscenity used in such cases.

Roadrunner Video was indicted May 4 for receiving allegedly obscene tapes from a California firm.

No trial date has been set.
