MELBOURNE — Garion Hall, the CEO of AbbyWinters.com, has been charged with 54 counts of producing and possessing “objectionable” films.

Hall also was charged on three child porn counts after police in Victoria raided his business, G Media, in June and seized footage of allegedly illegal sex acts. Computer records and DVDs were among items seized.

He was released after being questioned in June and charged last week with the “serious offenses,” which are equivlent to felonies.

The charges relate to sexually explicit DVDs allegedly made by his multimillion-dollar company, G Media.

Two of Hall's former models who appear on the AbbyWinters website as Blaire and Melita accused G Media of exploiting them and other nude models by not warning them it was illegal to profit from making objectionable films in Victoria, according to Australia’s Herald Sun.

The women claim G Media used large cash incentives to lure naive women into performing sex acts on camera.

Hall, 35, of Heidelberg, is due to appear in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Jan. 27 to face 57 charges.

AbbyWinters.com is a paysite that specializes in lesbian and solo erotica of amateur female nude models. The site has about 30,000 subscribers.

Hall, in June, said that the police raids were instigated by a tabloid journalist from the Herald Sun.
