Obscenity Charges Dropped Against Olathe Store

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ Johnson County prosecutors have dropped a grand jury indictment charging an Olathe convenience store with promoting obscenity.

District Attorney Phill Kline dismissed the charge after Gringo Loco agreed to remove a DVD titled "Babysitter No. 18'' from its shelves.

In October Kline dismissed four counts of promoting obscenity against Spirit Halloween of Overland Park, and two other businesses that were indicted have pleaded not guilty.

The grand jury that investigated obscenity was seated in mid-July after a petition drive by an area chapter of the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families. Kansas is one of a handful of states that allows a county grand jury to be seated through a citizen's petition process.
