MIAMI — Former Torture Portal operator Barry Goldman, who received three years probation as part of a plea deal over obscenity charges, has allegedly violated terms of his probation and supervised release, XBIZ has learned.

Goldman faces a status hearing on Wednesday at federal court in Miami.

Arrested on probation violations, Goldman was released on a $50,000 bond and was ordered to surrender his passport and placed in a home-confinement program.

At post time it was unclear the exact terms he was alleged to have broken; however one of the special conditions of his bond relates to avoid contact with two victims and witnesses — specifically identified — to his obscenity indictment.

Prosecutors did not immediately return XBIZ calls for questions relating to his arrest, nor did  Goldman's attorney, Jeff Weiner. 

Goldman earlier this year agreed to a plea deal requiring three years of probation, to wear a location-monitoring device for six months and be forced to disclose all business involvement during the probation.

He also was ordered to pay a court assessment fee of $100 and will forfeit all copies of “Torture of a Porn Store Girl,” “Defiant Crista Submits” and “Pregnant and Willing.”

In addition, as part of the deal with prosecutors, Goldman agreed to not contribute to the operation of TorturePortal.com and MastersOfPain.com

Goldman's plea deal, signed off by U.S. District Judge Dennis Cavanaugh in Newark, spares him a trial where he could have received up to five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000. His plea deal included one count under violating 18 U.S.C. § 1461 for mailing obscene material.

Goldman was indicted by a federal grand jury for the distribution of “Torture of a Porn Store Girl,” “Defiant Crista Submits” and “Pregnant and Willing” through the mail. The videos all were mailed in 2006 and 2007.

The Justice Department first learned of Goldman, 60, when he promoted his companies' movies at a Las Vegas adult industry convention in January 2006. The movies were sold through the web at TorturePortal.com.
