Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was eight years ago today that I posted this note about Obscenity in Maryland.

* * * * *

The following is from Md. Criminal Law § 11-202

Obscene matter—Distribution, exhibition, importation, and publication
Prohibited
(a) A person may not:

3) in the State prepare, publish, print, exhibit, distribute, or offer to distribute any obscene matter …

If I were the creator of certain images that have already been introduced into evidence at one trial, I wouldn’t do anything that might cause a Maryland law enforcement officer to look at them.

Some crimes have no statute of limitations.

Prevarication Du Jour

@PatO201404301547ZI wouldn’t reproduce the admittedly obscene images the Cabin Boy™ posted of me because they are well beyond the standards for this website. However, I can’t post them even if I wished to. They were introduced into evidence during the 9 December, 2013, hearing on the extension of the peace order, and Judge Stansfield has sealed that portion of the evidence.

Given that the case file has been transferred, the only people who now have legal access to those images are the judges of the Maryland Court of Appeals.

BTW, I’m not kidding when I say that the Cabin Boy has admitted that he intended for the images to be obscene.obsceneOne more thing … the image Schmalfeldt is complaining about was posted in the comment section here at Hogewash!, and I took it down as soon as I became aware of it. It was well beyond the standards for this blog. OTOH, goose … gander.
