No New Trial: A Florida record store owner convicted of obscenity for selling a sexually explicit album by the rap group 2 Live Crew lost his bid for a new trial last week. Charles Freeman, 32, was convicted on Oct. 3 for selling the album "As Nasty as They Wanna Be." Freeman's attorney argued that his client should be granted another trial because Judge Paul Backman gave jury instructions that both defense and prosecutors had not agreed to. Backman denied the request, saying his instructions were guidelines for defining obscenity. The misdemeanor conviction carries a possible one-year jail sentence and $1,000 fine. Sentencing has not been set.
