Angry Father Sues Penthouse for Taking Innocence of Son

March 21, 1999| Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A man is suing Penthouse magazine for $3 million, alleging the magazine robbed his 13-year-old son of innocence.

Charles Barefield of Dunbar filed the lawsuit last week, saying his son was solicited by Penthouse and other adult magazines to subscribe.

"I don't know how they got his name or how they signed him up. It's just amazing to me," Barefield said.

Barefield contacted the state attorney general and got an apology from Penthouse after school officials confiscated a duffle bag full of magazines from his son in October.
