Who is Al Goldstein?

Alvin "Al" Goldstein is a former American publisher and pornographer. His company, Milky Way Productions - owner of Screw and the long-running cable TV show Midnight Blue - was started in 1968 and went into bankruptcy in 2004. His mansion in Pompano Beach, Florida, complete with a backyard, 11-foot tall middle finger statue, was sold in June 2004 to pay debts.

In 2002, Goldstein was found guilty of harassing a former employee, doing such things as publishing her number in Screw and encouraging readers to call her, and he sentenced to 60 days in jail. The charges were appealed and eventually overturned but not before Goldstein served six days behind bars. As part of a plea bargain, Goldstein apologized for his action.
