The stereotype that pretty people are dumb is as insensitive as it is untrue. In this case, however, it seems to hold some weight.
Jarec Wentworth aka Teofil Brank of Sean Cody and Men.com has been arrested by undercover FBI agents for reportedly extorting a wealthy victim by threatening to make public the victim’s embarrassing “sexual liaisons.”
Brank was put under surveillance after he successfully blackmailed the unnamed wealthy gentleman out of some $500,000 in cash and an Audi R8 valued at $180,000.
But after he (very greedily) demanded another million and a condo, the man went to the FBI for help. They set up a sting at a Los Angeles Starbucks, and on March 4th, arrested Brank. Inside Brank’s car at the time of arrest was a loaded .357 Magnum revolver with additional ammunition.
According to Str8UpGayPorn (LINK VERY NSFW), Brank was denied bail due to flight risk and remains in the custody of U.S. Marshals until his arraignment on March 26th, when official charges will be filed. They also note that his recent roles in gay porn have found him playing a detective and listening in on other people’s thoughts, for what it’s worth.
Brank made several threats via text message (again, not the best idea), which were included in the FBI affidavit, some of which read:
I do have a twitter and your photos. Lies can be made or Maybe it’s the truth
Check my twitter, the conversation will grown [sic] and questions will be asked. You lied to me and treated me like shit. I asked again and you put it behind you. Now it’s biting your ass
I want a new car, motorcycle, and both hands full of cash
I want a condo here in LA. Bachelor pad. You have a taste I like. 2 bed Max. Perfer [sic] one. I want 300,000 cash. You can and will. I want this ASAP like yesterday. So you can be at peace.
If convicted, Brank faces up to 15 years in prison, and perhaps more due to the loaded gun.
