Larry Flynt Released From Hospital

January 22, 1999

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt has been released from the hospital after a bout with pneumonia.

Flynt is recuperating at his home, spokeswoman Kim Dower said Thursday.

The publisher, who left the hospital Wednesday, had been scheduled for surgery this week for a urological problem but his illness has postponed the operation.

Flynt’s medical problems also have delayed his Cincinnati obscenity trial to April 5.

Flynt, 55, and his brother, Jimmy, 49, were indicted last year on charges of pandering obscenity, disseminating material harmful to a juvenile, conspiracy and engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity.

They were charged after a 14-year-old boy allegedly bought a sexually explicit video at the Hustler Magazine & Gifts store managed by Jimmy Flynt.
