A judge in the criminal case against the producer of the "Girls Gone Wild" video series has decided that a videotape of an underage girl exposing her breasts without physical contact is not child pornography.
"Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis and several of his employees were arrested at Panama City Beach while filming during Spring Break last April.
Bay County sheriff's deputies charged Francis with racketeering and other crimes based largely on videotapes depicting girls under 18.
Defense Lawyer Aaron Dyer says he expects the ruling to undermine at least 90-percent of the case, saying many counts hinge on what conduct is considered illegal or pornographic.
