2 Live Crew member admits obscenity

A member of the rap group 2 Live Crew pleaded guilty in a Louisiana district court Monday to charges of simulating sex on stage during a concert in 1987 in Lafayette. Mark "Brother Marquis" Ross was given a six-month suspended jail sentence, fined $1,000 and placed on six months' unsupervised probation.

This was the latest court case involving 2 Live Crew since the group was acquitted of state obscenity charges Saturday in Fort Lauderdale. Last June, a federal judge in Broward County ruled the group's Nasty As They Wanna Be album obscene.
