State Supreme Court Judges are mulling over arguments about whether the Missouri sexual harassment law is constitutional. The judges have heard oral arguments in the case of 61-year-old Charles Moore, convicted of sexual misconduct for making sexually explicit suggestions to a 13-year-old girl in a Springfield restaurant two years ago. Moore’s lawyer argues the state law is too broad and infringes on the First Amendment right of free speech. Assistant Greene County Prosecutor Todd Myers insists that if properly applied, the statute is constitutional, a point he believes the judges understand. The Court has taken the case under advisement. It could be weeks before a ruling is made public.
