Supreme Court Denies Castillo Appeal
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has learned that the U.S. Supreme Court denied Jesus Castilloâ€™s petition for writ of certiorari, bringing his three-year quest for justice to a close. Castillo is presently serving a period of unsupervised probation.
Jesus Castillo was found guilty of selling an adult comic, from the adult section of the store, to an adult police officer, and convicted because the DA convinced the jury that all comics are really intended for children.
