A jury has found Sean Cody star Teofil Brank (a.k.a. Jarec Wentworth) guilty of extorting gay Republican millionaire Donald Burns.
As we reported yesterday, 51-year-old Burns admitted under oath this week to paying Brank for sex “at least four times” and giving him $1500 to $2500 “referral fees” anytime the 25-year-old adult film star introduced him to new male paramours.
After the relationship soured, however, Brank threatened to publish explicit photos of Burns if the millionaire didn’t fork over $1.5 million, a $180,000 Audi8 sports car, a motorcycle, and buy him a lavish condo in L.A.
He was arrested in an FBI sting operation on March 4.
During the trial, Justin Griggs, a friend of Brank’s, also testified that he and the $250 million businessman engaged in, ahem, intimate behavior that included “hanging out, surfing, grilling out, going to dinner, and then we would have sex, group sex.” (Griggs also testified that he had a similar relationship with David Geffen.)
Brank faces up to 53 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for September.
