Remember that porn star Jarec Wentworth, who was nabbed in an exploitation scheme he hatched against a wealthy benefactor, Donald Burns? (Read HERE and HERE) Well, he has been found guilty in federal court on six separate counts including extortion and attempted extortion.
A jury of 9 women and 3 men deliberated for just two hours before returning six guilty verdicts. Jarec reportedly “placed his hands on his face, then lowered his head to the table” after the verdicts were read. He’ll be sentenced on September 21, and could face six to nine years in the clink.
The trial was brief but predictably salacious, and news of testimony from Justin Matthews a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Taylor mentioning “gifts” he’d received from another, more famous gay sugar daddy — David Geffen — got quickly picked up by Gawker.
What this may mean for wealthy, lonely businessman Donald Burns and his reputation remains to be seen. Probably, it will mean nothing, because all rich people hire whores of one kind or another.
But this may put an end to an underground tradition, unknown to most of us, of young hotties both gay and gay-for-pay trying to blackmail their older johns when they realize they might have “reputations” to protect. Because in at least the case of Donald Burns, he was not willing to part with $1 million when it came down to it, reputation be damned.
