Obscenity charge dropped against store

December 21, 2007


Johnson County prosecutors have dismissed a grand jury indictment charging an Olathe convenience store with promoting obscenity.

District Attorney Phill Kline dropped the charge after Gringo Loco agreed to remove a DVD titled "Babysitter No. 18" from its shelves.

In October, Kline dismissed four counts of promoting obscenity against Spirit Halloween of Overland Park, and two other businesses that were indicted have pleaded not guilty.

The grand jury that investigated obscenity was seated in mid-July after a petition drive by an area chapter of the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families.

Kansas is one of a handful of states that allows a county grand jury to be seated through a citizen's petition process.

I bet you'll see a great increase in online purchases of Babysitter No. 18 in the JoCo area. Maybe one of the members of NCPCF had a family member starring in that production.
