Former XPW owner Rob Zicari (professionally known as "Rob Black") and former XPW performer Janet Romano (who performed under the name "Lizzy Borden") were sentenced to a year and a day in prison for conspiring to distribute pornographic videos depicting simulated rape and murder. Zicari and Romano also received two years of supervised release at sentencing yesterday. They pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to distribute obscene material.
The couple owned Extreme Associates Inc. and were indicted in August 2003 for selling graphic pornography through the mail and online after a long investigation by federal prosecutors. At the time, they were accused, "of sending obscene movies to a Post Office box in the Pittsburgh area. The suspects also allegedly sent obscene tapes and DVDs to a local wholesaler and transmitted obscene footage on the Extreme Associates Website."
