ALTADENA, Calif. — Paul F. Little, aka Max Hardcore, has been indicted on federal obscenity charges. The Justice Department charged Little with numerous counts of obscenity.

The 10-count indictment was returned against Little on May 17 and was unsealed yesterday.

The charges originate out of Florida, but Hardcore turned himself into authorities in California, WNBC in New York reported. The case is based in Florida because Little’s production company, Max World Entertainment, mailed DVDs there.

WNBC reported that in addition to the mailing of allegedly obscene material, Little also is being charged with transmitting five allegedly obscene video clips over the Internet via the company’s website. According to WNBC, federal prosecutors said they are “seeking forfeiture of the ‘obscene’ films, all money made from sales of the films and all property used in the making of the films, including [Hardcore’s] home in Altadena, Calif.”

Authorities also are seeking the forfeiture of the sites MaxHardcore.com, PissedOnPornStars.com and CatalinaXXX.com.

The DVD titles named in the indictment are “Max Hardcore Extreme 20 – Euro Edition,” “Pure Max 19 – Euro Edition,” “Max Hardcore Golden Guzzlers 7 – Euro Edition,” “Fists of Fury 4 – Euro Edition” and “Planet Max 16 – Euro Edition.”

Investigators with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation of Little. Attorneys with the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section of the Criminal Division are prosecuting the case, with the assistance of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.

Little is scheduled to be arraigned on July 12.

A call to Little's attorney Jeffrey Douglas seeking comment was not immediately returned.
