Obscenity vs. Freedom: All Charges Dropped! …for Now

As a very quick and unanticipated follow up to my post on Obscenity vs. Freedom, pertaining to the John Stagliano case and the greater issue of Obscenity and Freedom of Expression; the charges against John Stagliano, numbering so greatly that he could have been put behind bars for up to 32 years for a non-violent “crime” of obscenity, have been dropped.

The Honorable Judge Richard Leon dismissed the charges after the prosecution rested and the defense requested the case be dismissed on lack of evidence. Leon did so.

Reason TV caught up to Mr. Stagliano outside the federal courthouse shortly after the hearing.
