Violations of SOB Ordinance
Being Hit with Violations of the Sexually Oriented Business Ordinances
Adult bookstores, arcades, topless bars and others are under heavy legal restrictions. While city officials and law enforcement agencies say they are protecting the best interests of the community, in actuality a majority of these laws are based upon the enforcement of moral standards. Whether right or wrong, most of these laws are morality-based and create confused legal situations that must be addressed by a skilled attorney.
For example, if you run a red light or are apprehended stealing an item, these are simple infractions. However, to try and place similar standards to many of the sexually oriented business ordinances is more complicated. These violations often involve adjudication by the law enforcement agent. These violations can usually only be enforced when the situation has actually been set-up by a law enforcement agency. Imagine a police officer setting up a car accident in order to arrest you for reckless driving. Entrapment is a very common defense for those who are accused of violations in sexually oriented businesses, as it is not likely that a customer will make such a complaint.
