Charges upheld in comic book case

News Out Of Georgia where A Floyd County judge has upheld charges pending against Gordon Lee, the owner of a Broad Street comic book shop who is accused of giving a sexually explicit comic to a minor in October 2004.

Defense attorneys for Lee — who were successful earlier this month in having four of the seven charges against him dropped — had asked Superior Court Judge Larry Salmon to consider dismissing the remaining charges, which they argued are based on an unconstitutional statute and represented "needlessly duplicative" prosecution of their client.
