At this writing, the Miami Strike Force of the United States Department of Justice's Organized Crime and Racketeering Section remains actively involved in the prosecution of individuals charged with violations of federal law as a result of MIPORN. The most recent prosecution resulted in the conviction of Norman Arno on charges of conspiracy and interstate transportation of obscene material. Arno was sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay a $30,000 fine.

The MIPORN investigation has yielded substantial evidence of organized crime involvement in the nationwide distribution of pornographic material, and serves as an example of effective utilization of law enforcement resources to combat the trade in obscenity.
