Here’s a video interview with Isaacs: www.adultcybermart.com/adultfyi/?p=377
from www.businessinsider.com – A man convicted in April for selling porn involving human waste and bestiality could face four-to-seven years in prison.
Federal prosecutors are looking to can Ira Isaacs after two previous trials went awry, Politico reported Friday.
The sentence may reportedly be from four years, nine months to seven years, three months depending on whether Isaacs gave drugs to one of the women in his videos.
The April conviction came after Isaacs’ first trial was derailed when it was discovered that the presiding judge had sexual content on a computer server.
The second trial failed because the jury couldn’t come to a decision, according to Politico.
The case is the last involving the Bush administration’s Obscenity Prosecution Task Force, which Attorney General Eric Holder disbanded in 2011.
The small unit was reportedly made in response to claims at the time that obscenity laws were being neglected.
The Task Force focused on obscene stuff produced by unconventional producers rather than mainstream porn companies, according to Politico.

from www.politico.com – Federal prosecutors are seeking a sentence between nearly five years and a little over seven years for a California man who was the last to be convicted in a series of anti-obscenity prosecutions launched under President George W. Bush.
After two mistrials, Ira Isaacs was found guilty in April by a jury in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. He was convicted on one count of engaging in the business of producing and selling obscene videos and four counts of distributing obscene videos. The videos in question depicted bestiality and, as the Justice Department gingerly put it in a press release, “sex acts involving human bodily waste.”
In a court filing Wednesday, prosecutors asked U.S. District Court George King to sentence Isaacs to between four years, nine months and seven years, three months. The unusually wide range is due to a dispute over whether Isaacs provided drugs to one of the women who appeared in a video. Isaacs is seeking no jail time and a sentence of probation at the hearing set for Monday.
The case against Isaacs was initiated by the Obscenity Prosecution Task Force, a small Justice Department unit set up by the Bush Administration in response to protests from social conservatives that prosecutors were neglecting the obscenity laws. The unit had a mixed record in court and generally focused on materials from fringe producers rather than the big business of hardcore pornography. Lawmakers like Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) have complained that the approach of largely overlooking mainstream pornography is “misguided.”
Isaacs’s lawyer, Roger Diamond, said this week that his client’s case had established that DOJ could not prosecute the “mainstream adult entertainment business.” “We sort of forced the government to make a concession — that mainstream adult, and I mean hardcore sex, can’t be determined obscene,” Diamond told the industry publication Xbiz.
Attorney General Eric Holder disbanded the Bush-era unit, saying its duties could be handled by others at the department. Holder allowed pending cases to proceed, but observers say no new cases over adult pornography that have been filed since President Barack Obama’s administration took office. Holder has said child pornography will continue to a be a focus for the department, though he has not ruled out bringing other cases.
Isaacs’s first trial went awry after it was publicly reported that the judge assigned to the case had sexually-explicit materials on a computer server accessible through the internet. The second trial resulted in a hung jury.
