Gay porn star jailed for blackmail

Jerec Wentworth has been jailed for six years

Gay porn star Jarec Wentworth was jailed for nearly six years in a federal prison for blakmailing a wealthy telecom executive out of $1.5 million in cash and property.

The 26-year-old Sean Cody model, real name Teofil Brank, was found guilty of six felony counts in July.

It was found he had blackmailed millionaire Donald Burns, 51, out of $500,000 in cash and an Audi R8 valued at $180,000 in mid-February.

Burns, founder of magicJack internet phones and a Republican donor, went to the FBI after Brank demanded another $1 million and a condo in Los Angeles.

He also admitted to paying Brank and several other porn stars for sex, and paying some of the men thousands of dollars in cash for introducing him to new sex partners.

Brank was arrested in an FBI sting in March.

At trial, the prosecutor said Brank had been ‘vengeful and intentional’ in his blackmail scheme and had ’caused great emotional harm’ to the victim’.

Brank will be in prison for 70 months and then serve three years of supervised release.
