Description

Cyberporn bulletin board operators Robert and Carleen Thomas, from Milpitas, Calif., were convicted on obscenity charges by a jury in Memphis, one of the most conservative communities in the country. S.F. Weekly examines the couple's Silicon Valley startup and how it attracted the interest of a U.S. Postal Service inspector in Memphis, one who was willing to stretch the fabric of the First Amendment to bust the couple on obscenity charges. (March 15 - 21, 1995)
