A California filmmaker facing obscenity charges in Tampa federal court over his violent pornographic movies received a judge's permission Thursday to appear on the Howard Stern Show.

Paul F. Little, also known as Max Hardcore, asked the court earlier this week for permission to fly from California to New York on Sept. 22 to be on Stern's broadcast.

Little has pleaded not guilty to five counts of mailing obscene matter and five counts of transporting obscene matter by use of an interactive computer service. He lives in Altadena, Calif., and is out on bail until his trial.

The case is being prosecuted in Tampa because Little is accused of mailing films that meet the U.S. Supreme Court's standards for obscenity to a Tampa address. His movies include foul footage of bodily functions and severe violence toward female actors.

Little's travel plans filed with the court say he will return home on Sept. 25. The conditions of his bail allow him to travel near his home in California and fly to Tampa for court.
