Italian court tosses out fine for would-be johns

July 27, 2013 at 5:31 PM

ABRUZZO, Italy, July 27 (UPI) -- Italy's highest court has thrown out the conviction and fine of a prospective customer who slowed down for streetwalkers in Abruzzo.

The city's mayor instituted fines of between 250 and 500 euros ($660) for drivers who slow down to cruise prostitutes walking on city streets. A man who appealed his sentence to Italy's Court of Cassation had his sentence overturned, TheLocal.it reported Friday.

The court did not offer a reason for overturning the fine.
