TAMPA - Attorneys for Max Hardcore have filed a motion requesting permission for the producer/director to attend this weekend's AVN Adult Entertainment Expo before he heads off to the Big House.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Max must report Jan. 29 to a federal prison in Los Angeles to begin serving his 46-month sentence for obscenity crimes. He was allowed to remain free on bail following his conviction in April, but cannot travel without the court's permission.

Max's attorneys wrote in the motion that he needs to attend the expo "to complete transactions with other members of the adult entertainment business that would allow him to have the financial ability and arrangements to pay the $75,000 corporate fine and to otherwise secure his financial matters while he is away serving his sentence."

According to the motion, a federal prosecutor has already been notified and did not object to the request.
