WASHINGTON – An Indiana man has been charged by a federal grand jury in Martinsburg, W. Va., with transportation of obscene materials and related offenses, Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division announced Thursday.

Loren Jay Adams, 45, of Indianapolis, was charged with transporting obscene matters through the U.S. mail and transportation of obscene matters for sale or distribution by means of interstate commerce — from Indiana to West Virginia — in February 2008. In a separate allegation, the government is seeking forfeiture of assets belonging to Adams, including certain obscene materials and all property derived from profits or other proceeds obtained from or used to commit the alleged offenses.

Adams faces a maximum prison sentence of five years on each of the charged counts. The indictment was returned by the grand jury on May 20, and unsealed following Adams’ arrest.

Details of the material that led to the indictment was not available at post time.. The case is being prosecuted by Trial Attorney Pamela Satterfield of the Criminal Division’s Obscenity Prosecution Task Force with investigatory assistance from the FBI.

Loren Jay Adams was convicted of distribution of obscene matter and exhibition of obscene matter after a 2002 arrest for selling bestiality videotapes to an undercover detective.
