WASHINGTON — The federal judge in the upcoming obscenity trial of John Stagliano has released a proposed jury questionnaire and further details in the case.

The information provided by perspective jurors in the questionnaire will be used by the court and the affiliated parties to select a qualified jury.

The questionnaire explains to the perspective jurors what the case is about, stating that the government alleges the defendants have violated federal obscenity laws and defendants used the Internet and a common carrier to distribute obscene material in interstate commerce.

Further, the questionnaire states, the defendants have pleaded not guilty to the charges and are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Among the questions prospective jurors have to answer are:

  • Have you or any member of your family ever been audited or had a dispute with any city, county, or state agency or department of the U.S. government?

  • How frequently do you visit Internet websites?

  • Do you use a personal computer?

  • Do you believe the adult entertainment industry, and those affiliated with the industry, should be allowed to operate free of government regulation?

  • Do you believe the government's regulation of the adult entertainment industry is too lenient?

  • The jury in this case will be required to view some evidence that includes adult sexually explicit material. Would your personal reaction to such material or your personal moral or religious beliefs prevent you from looking at such material and considering it as evidence in this case?

  • Jurors will also be instructed that they must not be influenced in their decision by personal likes or dislikes, opinions, prejudices or sympathy. Would your personal reaction to pornography or your personal moral beliefs prevent you from following these instructions?

  • Do you believe you would consider the evidence fairly, impartially and according to the law?
The trial, in front of U.S. District Judge Richard Leon, is expected to last two weeks and begins July 7.
