Porn Star Jarec Wentworth, Convicted Blackmailer, May Have Sentencing Delayed

This post is also available in: Portuguese

It’s been a while since we checked in with Jarec Wentworth, so let’s see what he’s up to. When we first wrote about the gay porn star formerly known as Teofil Brank, he’d been arrested by the FBI for felony extortion; the claim was that he blackmailed a closeted millionaire for $500,000 and a $180,000 car, or Brank/Wentworth would out him.

Even after spending time in jail, he always maintained his innocence, saying that the payoffs were gifts from the millionaire sent as an apology for being too rough in a three-way gone wrong.

Brank was convicted this July and due to be sentenced in October — until now. Str8UpGayPorn (NSFW) is reporting that due to questions about whether or not Brank is a US citizen (versus a permanent resident), his sentencing will be delayed until January 11. His citizenship status will not change the severity of the sentence (Brank is expected to receive the maximum sentence of nine years), but will determine what kind of benefits he receives while incarcerated, and whether or not he could be deported to his birth country of Romania (where Brank has not lived since he was a toddler).

The stipulation, which has been agreed to by both sets of attorneys, can be read below:
