Grand Jury Indicts Porn Director Lizzie Borden

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) -- California porn director Lizzie Borden and her husband face a federal indictment for the sale of obscene films including the slasher-porn movie "Forced Entry," U.S. authorities said on Thursday.

Borden, 26, and her husband Rob Black, 29, both of Northridge, California, were named in a 10-count indictment along with their company, Extreme Associates Inc. They are due to appear in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh for an Aug. 27 arraignment hearing.

Borden and Black, also known as Janet Romano and Robert Zicari, are accused of using the U.S. Postal Service and the Internet to distribute obscene videotapes and DVDs including "Cocktails 2" and "Extreme Teen #24" across the United States.

Some recipients were based in western Pennsylvania, the venue for the federal grand jury that indicted the pair, authorities said.

"Forced Entry," which authorities said depicts the rapes and murders of several women, was the subject of media coverage by Salon.com and the PBS documentary program "Frontline" last year after its release.

Authorities said the couple's indictment was part of a new Justice Department crackdown against obscenity, which is not protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Other significant obscenity prosecutions were expected in the coming months, authorities said.

Borden and Black face a maximum penalty of 50 years in prison and a $2.5 million fine, while their company faces up to 50 years of probation and a $5 million fine, authorities said.

The couple was not immediately available for comment after authorities announced the indictment in Pittsburgh.
