The distribution of obscene material, as defined under Code of Alabama, 1975, section 13A-12-200.1, is a Class C felony offense if the distribution is undertaken for "pecuniary value." (Designed or intended to make a profit.) If obscene material is distributed knowingly, but without pecuniary gain, that offense is classified as a misdemeanor under the Alabama Code in section 13A-12-2003. In short, it appears that the person distrubuting this material may be prosecuted, at the discretion of the local district attorney. Your best course of action is to contact your local district attorney and request a conference.
Insofar a tort action and potential damages, that question is best referred to a civil practice attorney.
