Thomas Kilfoyle, 48, had been found guilty on Friday by a Los Angeles Municipal Court jury after just five minutes of deliberation. It was the first time that what is essentially a zoning law had been tested by a jury. Deputy City Atty. Michael Guarino said the guilty verdict was ificant, especially considering that jurors tend to be reluctant to convict under more traditional pornography laws. The conviction clears the way to rid residential neighborhoods of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of nearby adult establishments, Guarino said. Kilfoyle, in his defense, contended that he was conducting private parties for consenting adults.
I have done nothing to be ashamed of. Kilfoyle stated that there was no formal admission charge, but that some party-goers made donations to defray expenses. But prosecutors maintained, and the jury believed, that the admission charge had been mandatory. City law also prohibits such establishments from operating within 1, feet of a religious institution, school or public park.
The law was passed in May,but did not go into effect until March 7,to give operators an opportunity to transform adult establishments into non-adult ones.
In ordering Kilfoyle to perform 75 hours of community service work at an AIDS hospice, she said that photos and testimony had shown unsafe sex practices at the parties. According to police reports and prosecutors, police began their investigation in response to complaints by neighbors.
Guarino said the officers portrayed themselves as hesitant newcomers to swinging, and did not participate in any sexual acts. The arrests occurred on June 17,when officials from the police, fire, building and safety, and health departments, along with a police camera crew, raided one of the parties.
