A few months ago we had a post about Max Hardcore (real name Paul F. Little), an adult film producer that was found guilty of multiple obscenity offenses, including charges he transported obscene material over the Internet.
The court handed out its sentence on Friday and Max Hardcore was sentenced to 46 months in prison.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Susan Bucklew ordered Little to pay a US$7,500 fine and to forfeit all profits from the distribution of the films he was convicted of distributing.
In addition, Little must give up the films and the domain names he used to distribute them, the DOJ said.
Bucklew also fined Little’s adult entertainment company, MaxWorld Entertainment, $75,000.
The front page of Little’s Web site, MaxHardcore.com, had this message Monday: “This website has been forfeited to the Unites States Government pursuant to the conviction of Paul F. Little.”
Little was convicted in June on five counts of transporting obscene matter by use of an interactive computer service and five counts of mailing obscene matter. He was indicted in Florida in May 2007, after his company mailed adult films to an address in Tampa, Florida.
