SANTA MONICA, Calif. — After an unfavorable appeals court ruling, fetish filmmaker Ira Isaacs will be headed to federal prison.

His attorney, Roger Jon Diamond, has asked a federal judge to set July 12 or earlier as his surrender date.

Isaacs, 63, was convicted two years ago by a federal jury for mail distribution of four scat and bestiality titles — "Mako’s First Time Scat, " "Hollywood Scat Amateurs #7," "Hollywood Scat Amateurs #10" and "Japanese Doggie 3 Way." It was his third trial over obscenity charges; two other earlier trials had been declared mistrials.

Last month, a three-judge panel for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reverse the conviction.

Isaacs, who has spent no time behind bars since the the jury's verdict in 2012, faces four years in federal prison.

Diamond told the court that federal prosecutors don't object to the July 12 surrender date, nor do they take a position as to what prison he should be housed in.

Isaacs, according to Diamond, is seeking to be housed in either of two California penitentiaries run by the federal Bureau of Prisons — Terminal Island in Long Beach, Calif., or Lompoc, a city in Santa Barbara County.

Isaacs also seeks to go into a drug-rehabilitation program, Diamond said.        

U.S. District Judge George King hasn't yet decided on Isaacs' surrender date.

The Bureau of Prisons already has assigned Isaacs an inmate register number — No. 45196-112.
