Jury selection in the trial of Evil Angel owner and porn distributor John “Buttman” Stagliano began yesterday. Stagliano faces multiple federal obscenity charges for selling pornographic material through the mail and on the Internet. Despite the obvious sweeping First Amendment implications, the run-up to the trial has barely received any notice from the mainstream press. AVN, however, will be all over the trial, assigning legal reporter Mark Kernes to cover the happenings.

If convicted, Stagliano faces up to five years in prison.
