A Simi Valley cartoonist who created Hustler magazine's "Chester the Molester" cartoon and is charged with child molesting often said, "You can't write this stuff all the time if you don't experience it," according to court documents. The cartoonist, Dwaine Tinsley, 43, was arrested last month after an 18-year-old told police he had molested her for five years. Police searched Tinsley's home on May 18. The search warrant, which was filed Thursday in Ventura Municipal Court, included an affidavit by Simi Valley Detective Gary Gilloway outlining the statements of the young woman, who lives in Chatsworth.

Your Dec. 24 editorial "Parental Advisory" on the proposed Illinois laws limiting minors' access to certain video games raises several valid points. However, you struck an oddly anachronistic note by mentioning Vladimir Nabokov's acclaimed work of literature "Lolita" alongside Hustler magazine and the game "Doom 3," which you rightly call "disgusting." One would be hard-pressed to observe the roots of human emotion in Hustler, and I am confident that no critic has yet found a subtle interplay of remembrance and imagination in "Doom 3."

The cartoonist who created the Hustler magazine feature "Chester the Molester" has been sentenced to six years in prison for molesting a teen-age girl. Dwaine B. Tinsley, 44, of Simi Valley was convicted in January of five counts of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl. The Superior Court jury acquitted him on six additional sex charges involving the same girl but were deadlocked on five others, which were dismissed, Deputy Dist. Atty. Matthew J. Hardy said.

Not too long ago Larry Flynt (publisher of Hustler magazine) wore our beloved flag as a diaper. I was enraged and The Times published my letter stating my feelings. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled it is permissible to desecrate our national symbol, I feel I owe Mr. Flynt a public apology. Sorry 'bout that, Larry. MARY E. HAYES Lakewood

Feminist author-activist Andrea Dworkin lost her attempt to have the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reverse a district court's dismissal of her $150-million lawsuit against Hustler magazine for libel, invasion of privacy and "outrage." The appellate court said in San Francisco that derogatory use of a public figure's name by a pornographic publication does not constitute libel.

Re "U.S. Plans to Escalate Porn Fight," Feb. 14: Obscenity laws are illogical, and it's time Congress repealed them. Who is the government to say what is and isn't obscene? I personally don't like the type of pornography that the government would classify as obscene. But some people do. And there's nothing wrong with that. What people want to look at in the privacy of their own homes is nobody else's business. Josh Rivetz Northridge Regarding pornography, that society is healthiest which pays the least attention to it.

City Council candidate Tom Hayden announced Monday that he has canceled a fund-raiser that had been planned for the offices of Hustler magazine, citing concerns over the event becoming a "media circus." Hayden, a former state senator from Westwood, had come under fire last week from opponent Jack Weiss in the 5th District race for planning a fund-raiser in the office of Larry Flynt, who publishes the pornographic magazine.

City Council candidate Tom Hayden was criticized by his opponent and others for scheduling a fund-raiser at the offices of Hustler magazine, but feminist leaders who back Hayden said Friday they don't oppose his decision. Jody Miller, the co-chair of the campaign of Jack Weiss, who is running against Hayden in the June 5 election, accused Hayden of applying a double standard. She said Hayden has unfairly criticized Weiss on the issue of women's rights.

When the Eldorado Club in Gardena declared bankruptcy last year, club official Maggie Mundet sent out only two letters to people she thought might want to buy the card club. One was to famed pornographer Larry Flynt, the other to entertainer and game show guru Merv Griffin. Griffin never responded. But two weeks later, Hustler magazine publisher Flynt was in touch, saying that he was thinking about expanding his empire.

It was a lampoon that became an affront, which turned into a court case that gave us a movie to stir up a debate. So, naturally, naughty Larry Flynt's escapades wind up next, ahem, the toast of academia. Who better than Flynt to illustrate that plenty is never enough? And thanks to "The People vs. Larry Flynt," others are now being drawn forward to bask in the notoriety of a man who pleads guilty to heinous crimes of bad taste. All because there's a principle involved.
