massages in violation
By MICHAEL WADE
Although some local adult establishments
may be in violation of North Carolina's
tough new anti-pornography law, no
immediate arrests are likely, local law
enforcement officials said Wednesday.
District Attorney Wade Barber confirmed
that his office is investigating some adult
establishments in Orange County, but he
declined to identify any specific
"The law is complex when it comes to
enforcement," Barber said. "For
enforcement, there would be a lot of time
required on the part of the district attorney's
office and the police." He said much of that
time would involve investigation,
preparation of a case and a lengthy trial.
"All of the cases I'm aware of are being
challenged in federal court," Barber added.
Chapel Hill Police Chief Herman Stone
said there are only three adult businesses
within the Chapel Hill city limits. He said the
department is not investigating any of the
businesses for possible violations of the
The statute, which went into effect Jan. 1,
states that, "No building, premises, structure
or other facility that contains any adult
establishment shall contain any other adult
establishment. No building, premises,
structure or other facility in which sexually
oriented devices are sold, distributed,
exhibited or contained shall contain any
other adult establishment."
The statute defines an adult establishment
as an adult bookstore, adult motion-picture
theater, adult mini-motion picture theater or
a massage business.
Maximum penalties for violation of the
statute, a misdemeanor, are three months
(imprisonment, a $300 fine or both. Second
or subsequent offenders are subject to six
months imprisonment, a $500 fine or both.

Raleigh banking executive J. J. Sansom
Jr. asked the Wake County Superior Court
Wednesday to decide whether state law
prohibits him from serving on both the UNC
Board of Governors and the N.C. Banking
A decision by the N.C. Attorney General's
office said Sansom and another board
member, Mrs. George D. Wilson of
Fayetteville, could not hold both their UNC
board seats and seats on state commissions.
Deputy State Attorney General Andrew
Vanore said in a written opinion that any
person on a state commission was "an officer
of the state." According to North Carolina
law, no state officer can serve simultaneously
on the Board of Governors.
In the complaint, Sansom and his lawyer
said the intent of the state law was to prevent
full-time public employees and state
legislators from sitting on the Board of
Cressie Thigpen, one of Sansom's
attorneys, said Wednesday the suit was filed
for an interpretation of the law.
"I filed the complaint to see what the law
really is," Sansom told the Daily Tar Heel
Thursday. "I think the opinion of the
attorney general is erroneous."

The Inquiry adult bookstore at 403 W. Franklin St. and the
University Massage parlor at 405 W. Franklin St. occupy the
same building and are thus in violation of a new state anti
pornography statute. Despite this and other violations in the
bookstore is owned by Larry Moore, who
also owns an adult bookstore, a minitheater
and a massage business all located in the
same building on the 15-501 bypass next

Stone said he will study the law carefully
and discuss it with Barber before deciding if
any investigations are necessary.
An employee of the Enquirer said he has
instructions to not let anyone take pictures
inside the store and to continue operating the
store until police come in and tell him to
close it down. ,
Both Stone and Barber said they have
never had problems or complaints about
adult establishments in the Chapel Hill area
that resulted in arrests.
