Dorr Wants Criminal Charges Dismissed
June 11, 2019 2:26pm
An Ocheyedan man who published a video of himself publicly burning four LGBT books from the Orange City Public Library is asking a judge to dismiss a criminal charge in the incident.
Paul Dorr has pleaded not guilty to 5th-degree criminal mischief in the case.
His jury trial is set for 9 a.m. on August 6 at the Sioux County Courthouse.
According to court documents, on Oct. 6, 2018, Dorr checked out four children’s books from the library which focused on gay, lesbian, and transgender themes. Thirteen days later, court documents say Dorr burned the books and posted the video to Facebook. According to court documents, the books were repaid for by Dorr.
Court documents filed on Monday indicate Dorr claims his charge should be dismissed as it violates his Equal Protection Rights and his First Amendment Rights under the U.S. Constitution. He also claims Orange City has never criminally charged anyone for failing to return or damaging checked out library books.
