Store owners agree to drop adult magazines

        NEWPORT — The owners of the Dairy Mart Store in Alexandria avoided a trial on charges of distributing obscene material by agreeing Tuesday to refrain from selling a number of adult magazines.

        The agreement states that Lawson Co. of Dublin, Ohio, which operates the Dairy Mart in Alexandria and two Dairy Mart stores in Newport, will remove the magazines from the stores' shelves and will not offer them for sale in the future.

        Campbell County police officers bought a number of adult-oriented magazines from the Alexandria store in October and subsequently filed five counts of distribution of obscene matter against the owners.

        Lawson Co. stated it was “making a business decision to remove the subject magazines ... rather than litigating the issue of whether the subject magazines are obscene judging by the community standards of Campbell County.”
