imagesSexually Oriented Business coming to your town? Have you ever been in a situation in which a sexually oriented business (SOB) was trying to set up shop in your community?  You know that you will be facing a sex shop that may include the nude dancers, pole dancers, prostitution, lap dancing, the sale of sex toys and associated paraphernalia, drug use,  etc..

And while industry attorneys say he represents a moral agenda, not a legal one, Bergthold says he's not trying to shut anyone down. He's just helping regulate the SOBs — sexually oriented businesses, that is. …" Contact info for Scott Bergthold: Adult Business Law Law Office of Scott D. Bergthold, P.L.L.C. 8052 Standifer Gap Rd.
