Don't Jail Louisiana Librarians.

House Bill 414, filed by Representative Josh Carlson (R-Lafayette), seeks to remove this exemption from criminal prosecution for public libraries. If these passed, public librarians could be prosecuted for having obscene materials, facing fines as high as $5000 and jail time of up to three years. This, despite Gov. Jeff Landry's own Protecting Innocence Report stating that Louisiana libraries contain NO obscene materials.
