The Justice Department has vowed to enforce the law, whatever form it finally takes, and the penalties, based on child pornography levels of punishment, are extremely harsh. Even with no minors involved in the productionindeed, even if all performers are 40 or overa first-offense paperwork error can still mean five years in federal prison. After the first conviction, the law carries prison sentences of 2 years minimum, 10 years maximum.
Responding to the threat of 2257 enforcement is a top priority of Free Speech Coalition. As soon as the final regulations are published, FSC plans to go into Federal District Court to seek an injunction on behalf of its members. FSC plans two lawsuits, led by premiere First Amendment attorneys, one to be filed on the West Coast by H. Louis Sirkin, and the other by Paul Cambria on the East Coast.
