There's Someone Rational in the Lubbock DA Office!

Sex may not be illegal in Lubbock, after all!

Lubbock A-J Article

No charges filed in sex device case

The Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney's Office dismissed a case against a local peddler of sexually oriented material, a prosecutor with the office, Tray Payne, said Friday.

Payne declined to comment further.

It is the third time that the man has been cleared in a case of similar nature.

Police charged lingerie shop owner Gary Evans in May with promotion of obscene devices, citing a portion of the Texas Penal Code that prohibits the possession of six or more obscene devices - described "as a dildo or artificial vagina, designed and marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs."

Undercover police discovered dozens of such devices inside a closed cabinet at the rear of Somethin' Sexy, Evans' lingerie shop on Slide Road. They seized about 120 items from the shop, including a vibrating thong and vibrating tongue rings.

Here's the part that gets me.

The same police officer - Cpl. Bill Bates - was involved in all three of the investigations, court documents show.

It seems to me like Cpl. Bates has a vendetta against sex. When did sex ever do him wrong?

Here's a suggestion to the LPD: Remove Bates from all investigations regarding sex. They're stupid and a waste of taxpayer money.
