The trial of a woman who was charged with obscenity for driving a pickup truck with fake testicles on the back is set to start at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Bonneau.
Virginia Tice, a 67-year-old resident of this small town north of Moncks Corner, pulled a pickup truck with big red fake testicles dangling from the rear into a gas station July 5. Police Chief Franco Fuda wrote her a $445 ticket for an obscene bumper sticker.
State law says "a sticker, decal, emblem, or device is indecent when taken as a whole, it describes, in a patently offensive way, as determined by contemporary community standards, sexual acts, excretory functions, or parts of the human body."
Tice planned to object to the ticket in traffic court, but Fuda requested a jury trial before she was set to appear.
Attorney Scott Bischoff of Savage & Savage is representing Tice. Fuda will be the prosecutor.
