Exclusive: Jarec Wentworth Speaks Out From Prison, Blames Conviction On His Own Attorneys, David Geffen
One year ago last month, Str8UpGayPorn reported exclusively that former Sean Cody/Men.com gay porn star Jarec Wentworth had been arrested for extorting Republican multimillionaire Donald Burns. Following his trial and conviction last summer, Wentworth (legal name Teo Brank) was sentenced to nearly six years in prison. That sentence is being served at a medium security prison in Victorville, California, and it’s from there that Jarec Wentworth has reached out exclusively to Str8UpGayPorn to tell his complete, uncensored side of the story that made national headlines last year.
What follows today and in the coming weeks will be unedited transcripts of Wentworth’s prison emails to Str8UpGayPorn, published here with his full permission. As you might expect, Wentworth is maintaining his innocence, and he hopes to have his conviction overturned on an appeal, which could be heard as early as this summer.
In this first brief email below, Wentworth summarizes (with further explanations forthcoming) one key aspect of his defense: The incriminating texts presented at trial from him to Donald Burns were fabricated. Upon initially reaching out to Wentworth, I asked if he had any message he wanted to share with the industry and his fans, and he addresses that in this email, too. To help Wentworth financially with his appeal, contact him via BOP. For context on key names or details Wentworth discusses below, use the links.

Here is Jarec Wentworth’s first email:
Ok ill get started on the explaining on the next email after chow. If you can put Men.com on blast for why they didn’t offer to help me. I need help getting a certified forensic specialist to examine the audio tape, my phone and the video recording to prove its tampered with. ask fans for help to find and fund it. I need to get one before the appeal is due by June.
The texts are fabricated. a lot of them don’t even exist in Dons phone extraction, especially the 1mill demand. the recording too, omg really on a new case the fbi uses a used memory card with a min and half of space left to record a convo that never even said anything about demand or extortions. wouldn’t it be easy to record all the calls (which there were many, checked call logs, also about 60 miss texts too) and record me demanding things like they said? Justin did what David Geffen and Don told him to say. Etienne already works with the DEA. He’s a drug dealer. lied and even messed up on the stand. omg the details coming soon. don’t worry, what I’m going to tell you will not hurt me, it will be used in a retrial of which i will go prosay. my attorneys were in on it. fml. Tell everyone I said thanks for the positive hopes, the truth will be out. fabricated. Don had more attorneys then the O.J case. money buys anything.
