Grandma may face jail time for refusing to give back pornographic kids book to library

Quite a story. An excerpt:

Time is running out for JoAn Karkos. The Maine woman has until 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29 to return the sexually explicit children's book It's Perfectly Normal to a public library in Lewiston.

If she does not, the 64-year-old grandmother may face jail time.

"I'm not giving the book back," Karkos said. "Every citizen has an obligation to protect the innocence of children." [...]

Meant as sex education for preteens and adolescents as young as 10, It's Perfectly Normal contains cartoons of naked men and women in various sexual poses, long-winded descriptions of masturbation and homosexuality as depictions of 'perfectly normal' behavior.
