LAKE WALES, Fla. — Kimberly Kupps, who was charged earlier this month on obscenity charges for content distributed over the web, has tapped adult industry attorney Lawrence G. Walters to represent her.

Kupps earlier this month was booked along with her husband under statute 847.5 on 13 counts of “wholesale promotion of obscene material” for content on her namesake site, KimberlyKupps.com.

The Polk County Sheriffs Department had been investigating the big-boobs model and performer for three months after a deputy paid an initial $19.95 membership fee to her website.

Later, Florida Judge Reinaldo Ojeda reviewed Kimberly Kupps clips and signed off on arrest warrants after he deemed the content obscene.

 “We intend to vigorously defend Ms. Kupps in this case, which appears to be the latest in a decades-long effort by this sheriff to violate the 1st Amendment rights of erotic content publishers," Walters told XBIZ. "I’ve been involved in many of these obscenity cases over the years, so I hope my experience in this particular jurisdiction will be beneficial to the defense."

Walters noted that he hasn't viewed the allegedly obscene material, "since all of our client’s computers and media were seized by law enforcement."

"My understanding is that the material is well within the mainstream of acceptable erotica, and should not be censored by the government," he said. Kupps has established a legal defense fund, and hopes that the industry will contribute to this effort to fight the censorship machine in Polk County, Florida” 

Donations can be sent to Walters' office (wire/credit card info or checks): Kimberly Kupps Legal Defense Fund, c/o Lawrence G. Walters, Trust Account, 781 Douglas Ave., Altamonte Springs, FL 32714. Or call (407) 975-9150.
