S Aga by Noel Yancey associated press writer Raleigh a two District attorneys say a change in the Law made by the 1974 general Assembly leaves them without a suitable weapon against pornography.

Mcneill Smith a Guilford chairman of a subcommittee which studied the obscenity Law change did not agree. Although the Law defines what will be considered obscene it also requires that there must be a court finding that material is obscene before an arrest can be made. Mitchell said the Law requires that a dealer or movie operator must display the material a second time after the court rules it obscene to be liable for criminal prosecution. Mitchell and Thompson said the practical effect of the Law will be that once a civil complaint has been filed against a particular work the dealer can simply change his Stock and get a new Supply of pornography. A it would be patently foolish for him to sell something that has already been declared obscene a Mitchell said. A but All he does is change his Stock order some new supplies in Small Quantity so they will be sold out by the time the civil complaint is decided a Mitchell said that pattern a in effect Means there will not be any criminal prosecutions for obscenity under the Smith said the general Assembly did not consider the objection raised by Mitchell and Thompson to be a problem. A the people who appeared before our committee claimed that adult Book stores would not exist if they have to change their Stock every week if All they sold was hard Core pornography and would go out of business a a Smith said.
