Roland Bouldreault and Larry Nelson, San Francisco, California.

Nelson told the agents in March 1978 that he would have to check out the agents prior to shipping to Miami, Florida. Nelson asked who the agents had dealt with and the agents said A & A Distributors of Chicago, Illinois. Thereafter, Nelson placed a long distance telephone call to Tony DeFalco, main owner of A & A Distributors. After talking to DeFalco, Nelson said he would ship hard core material to Golde Coaste. Nelson said DeFalco said the agents were "good people" and that he (Nelson) trusted DeFalco completely, having dealt with him for a long period of time. The shipments were sent from Foxx Distributors, 47 Minna Place, San Francisco, California, which was a fictitious name and address.

In July 1978, the agents discussed with Bouldreault the possibility of distributing a bondage film depicting sadomasochistic acts. Bouldreault said he was very interested and that he could possibly distribute several hundred copies of such films to his outlets in Amsterdam.

During a sentencing hearing on June 28, 1984, the United States submitted invoices demonstrating that from 1976 through mid-1978 child pornography materials were shipped from Le Salon and a company by the name of All American Studios, San Francisco California. Among the titles was "Bare Boys", a sexuall, explicit magazine depicting boys under the age of fourteen There was testimony by William Dworin, of the Los Angeles Police Department, who stated that he knew one of the boys depicted it the magazine and that he was actually eight or nine years old when the picture was taken.
