Hollywood Fetish Porn Producer Sentenced to 4 Years

Ira Isaacs is charged with producing obscene material and mailing it across state lines.

Following two mistrials, a Hollywood Hills fetish filmmaker was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison in a federal obscenity case.

A Los Angeles jury convicted Ira Isaacs last April of five counts connected to the production, sales and shipping of the films "Mako's First Time Scat," two volumes of "Hollywood Scat Amateurs" and "Japanese Doggie 3 Way."

Along with the federal prison term, U.S. District Judge George H. King ordered Isaacs to pay about $11,000 in fines and court costs. He will also be subject to three years of supervised release after he leaves prison.

Isaacs' attorney, Roger Jon Diamond, said his client will appeal the ruling to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The first case in 2008 ended in a mistrial when the judge recused himself after it was revealed that he had posted sexually explicit photos on his personal website.

A second mistrial was declared last March after the panel voted 10-2 in favor of conviction.

Isaacs, 62, was charged with producing obscene material and mailing it across state lines. Jurors were shown the four films, which feature bestiality and defecation.
