The owner of Doctor John's adult novelty store has pleaded not guilty to charges of distributing obscene material, this time in Scottsbluff.
John Haltom waived his arraignment in writing and his attorney entered his plea in Scotts Bluff County Court.
He remains free on $500 bail.
The Scotts Bluff County complaint accuses Haltom of distributing obscene videos. Authorities say the videos, purchased and viewed by Scottsbluff police, appear to have the same content as those that landed him in jail in Omaha. Haltom was released from a six-month jail term in Douglas County for obscenity charges on Dec. 4.
Earlier this month, Doctor John's Inc. also filed a lawsuit against the city of Sioux City, Iowa, claiming its zoning regulations were designed to keep his Doctor John's Lingerie Boutique from opening there.
