(KMOV) – Last August, Governor Jay Nixon signed into law that any “adult-themed” businesses in Missouri cannot be open between midnight and 6 a.m.
News 4 has discovered that Pure Pleasure Megacenter in Old North St. Louis has been operating 24 hours which is illegal since the business sells adult DVDs, toys, magazines and lingerie.
The owner of the adult store would not say how long they have been operating 24 hours.
Business owners caught can be fined $500, receive 90 days in jail or both for each citation.
The St. Louis Police Department is not aware of any citations issued to Pure Pleasure.
A judge rejected a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law on sexual-oriented businesses in February 2011.
