Florida Lawyer Takes Adult Store Owner's Case in Pittsylvania Co.

Posted:

Pittsylvania Co., VA - The owner of an adult store in Pittsylvania County is fighting back after officials ordered her to close.

Owner Trish Post contacted a lawyer in Orlando who specializes in cases that violate First Amendment rights.

Attorney Lawrence Walters agreed to take the case free of charge.

County officials say the store Intimacy on a New Level violated an ordinance by selling pornographic DVD's and sex toys, but her attorney says what the county is doing is unconstitutional.

"If the county can shut down their business because they don't like what they're doing, then that means the county can shut down anyone's business because they don't like what they're doing, and that's not what this country was founded on, " Walters said. 

The County Board of Zoning Appeals will consider the owner's appeal in September.
