(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Court of Appeals says officials in Southern Indiana's Spencer County didn't violate the constitution when they tried to regulate an adult bookstore.

The court upheld a county ordinance that said sexually themed businesses must be located at least 1,000 feet away from homes, churches or schools.

The three-judge panel said the ordinance did not unconstitutionally restrict free speech and noted that the owners of the 231 Adult Plaza could have built elsewhere.
