Transcript Perversion, Violence Traced Porno and Crime Linked San Antonio Express - Nov 14, '73 By DAVID TOMLIN Of the Express Staff Grand Jury Text Page 3A A special grand jury report Tuesday traced perversion and violence in San Antonio's pornography trade and linked local adult movie houses and book stores to national crime syndicates. Last Friday the same panel capped nearly three months of investigation with 34 indictments for conspiracy to distribute and exhibit pornographic material- Tuesday's report also criticized "respectable members of our community" for leasing buildings for adult theaters and called for tighter licensing procedures to restrict them. Major findings in the report are as follows: • Eleven of 13 theaters that have operated here and all local adult book stores are controlled by state and national crime syndicates, at least one of them which "appears '" have definite Mafia connections." • Officials of one national organization planned a bombing assassination of a local adult movie house competitor. • Male and female prostitutes, some of- them teen-agers, have solicited business and performed sex acts in some theaters. • Films shown locally go beyond "the old stag or party film" to show oral and anal sodomy, sexual abuse of children, sex acts with animals and "every form of moral .depravity the human mind is capable of except cannibalism." • Local theaters have routinely violated city health and fire safety codes and state corporation laws. The jury called for a lobbying effort in City Council and the state legislature for laws prohibiting the display and sale of obscene material. The report also asked City Council to review its enforcement of licensing, health and fire safety ordinances as they apply to adult book stores and movie houses. Dist. Atty. Ted Butler's office has reported that its investigation in connection with the grand jury probe has resulted in the closing of eight of the theaters with others, expected to follow suit. Page 23
