MELROSE PARK, Ill., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Undercover officers said their investigation found no illegal behavior in a sex-party room of a pornography bookstore in Melrose Park, Ill.

Fifteenth Avenue Adult Books charges adults $30 or more per person to enter the party room and mingle with others, some of whom engage in sex orgies, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday.

One of store's owners is Robert Urbinati, 68, a former police officer sentenced in 2002 to 33 months in prison for taking bribes from the mob.

"My client has done his time, and now he's moved on to the second phase of his life," lawyer Joseph Lopez told the Sun-Times. Urbinati was not available for comment.

There is no prostitution at the book store and no illegal drugs, just consenting adults, Lopez said The room also is used for bachelor parties, he said.

Melrose Park Mayor Ronald Serpico said he would prefer the book store and party room went elsewhere, but there is nothing that can be done about it.

"I can't regulate morality," Serpico said.
