Prosecutor Rules on Howell Book Flap

No laws have been broken. The books are not obscene:

"After reading the books in question it is clear that the explicit passages illustrated a larger literary, artistic or political message and were not included solely to appeal to the prurient interests of minors," [County Prosecutor David Morse] wrote. "Whether these materials are appropriate for minors is a decision to be made by the school board, but I find they are not in violation of the criminal laws."

It's up to the school board, which has already decided.
