Because jurors who convicted Jennifer Dute last year of pandering obscenity didn't get to see similar porn videos declared not obscene, her conviction and one-year prison sentence were thrown out Friday by a divided Ohio appeals court panel.

"Debate (over obscenity) is good. I just don't believe that debate should take place in a courtroom where somebody's liberty is at stake," Lou Sirkin, Dute's attorney, said Friday.

Dute, 33, was convicted of four counts of pandering obscenity by a Hamilton County jury last year that reached its decision after watching four of the home-made porn videos Dute made and starred in.
