One Judge Says Minors Can Strip Since It’s “Art”
Here is a judge that needs to be impeached or at the very least voted out when he is up for retention:
The Iowa Court of Appeals on Wednesday dismissed the state’s request for a review of the issue. The request followed a judge’s 2008 decision that Clarence Judy, then-owner of Shotgun Geniez, didn’t violate the state’s public indecent exposure law.
Judy was charged after a 17-year-old girl stripped onstage in the southwestern Iowa club in 2007.
Iowa law makes it a criminal offense to allow minors to perform a live act intended to arouse patrons. But Fremont County Judge Timothy O’Grady ruled that the strip club was protected because the law doesn’t apply to theaters, art centers, or other venues devoted to the arts or theatrical performances.
O’Grady said prosecutors failed to prove the club wasn’t a theater.
Not that I have personal experience, but I fail to see how a strip club named “Shotgun Geniez” could be mistaken to be a theater or art center. But after a quick google search I found out (no I didn’t visit the site) that they are calling themselves “Shotgun Geniez Theater.” Well there, that makes sense.
