The world will have to wait a little longer to find out if fake testicles hanging from the back of a truck violate the state's obscenity law.
A trial that was set for next week has been rescheduled for Nov. 2.
Charleston Attorney Scott Bischoff, who is defending Virginia Tice of Bonneau, got a continuance Wednesday because he's involved in another trial next week. He has not been successful so far in getting the case dismissed.
"It looks like we're going to have to try this thing," Bischoff said Wednesday.
Bonneau Police Chief Franco Fuda wrote Tice a $445 ticket July 5 after seeing her pickup truck with big red fake testicles hanging from the trailer hitch at a gas station. He said the ornament violated the state's obscenity law.
Fuda requested a jury trial before Tice had a chance to appear in traffic court. He did not return a phone message Wednesday.
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."
