Adult film producer Ira Isaacs was found guilty of violating federal obscenity laws by a Los Angeles jury on Friday for movies that depict bestiality and extreme fetishes. This was his third trial -- the first two ended in mistrials.

Isaacs was indicted several years ago as part of a now disbanded Bush administration task force set up to crack down on "smut" in the United States. 

According to his defense attorney Roger Diamond, Isaacs was found guilty of five counts, including mailing obscene matter. He could face probation or up to 20 years in prison. Federal prosecutors did not immediately comment about the verdict.

Sentencing is set for August 6.
