Cherry Pit Trial Is, Apparently, Not About Sex At All. Right. OK, Then.
No doubt you've read Mike Fisher's September 17 cover story about the Cherry Pit; more than a month after publication, the swinging tale out of Duncanville remains a big hit. If you somehow missed it, well, you might wanna bone up on the story, as co-owner Jim Trulock's trial is currently underway. And while we're not on the scene, KTVT-Channel 11's Bud Gillett is live blogging the whole sordid affair. And, moments ago, he posted this update following opening arguments: "Duncanville City Prosecutor Kim Lafferty told jurors the issue is not about sex, but about an unlicensed business ... The first witness is the city code inspector who witnessed the sex business that led to two of the ten counts." Sex business -- there's a band name, right there. --Robert Wilonsky
