AR Code § 5-68-402 (2015) What's This?

(a) The General Assembly determines that during the past several years, the spread of obscene publications has become a matter of increasingly grave concern to the people of this state.

(b) The elimination of this evil and the consequent protection of the citizens and residents of this state against those publications are in the best interests of the morals and general welfare of the people.

(c) The accomplishment of these ends can best be achieved by providing prosecuting attorneys both with a speedy civil remedy for obtaining a judicial determination of the character and contents of publications and with an effective power to reach nonresidents responsible for the composition, publication, and distribution of obscene publications within the state.
