Al Tapper and Ray Hind, Los Angeles, California.

In April 1978, during a video taped meeting with Ray Hind, Hind discussed the pornography industry and the fact that during the previous week he had three telephone calls from "people within the industry" checking on the "legitimacy" of the agents. Hind said that his boss, Al Tapper, had personally contacted him from New Orleans, Louisiana, to inquire how long Hind had known the agents. Hind said he gave the agents a good recommendation and that everything was okay.

Hind claimed to be well known within the industry and said he was personally acquainted with Teddy Rothstein and Robert DiBernardo of Star Distributors, New York City. He said he had also received calls from "their people" checking on the agents.
