Gay Porn Star Chris Bines Indicted For Felony Drug Trafficking, Faces Federal Trial Next Month

Posted August 31, 2017 by with 60 comments

bines1He’d been arrested on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges previously in 2012, but gay porn star Chris Bines (legal name Steven Sholly) now faces a felony drug trafficking charge after he and seven other suspects were indicted for allegedly conspiring to distribute over 100 kilograms of marijuana. 100 kilograms is over 3,520 ounces, with a street value of approximately one million dollars. Bines/Sholly was arrested earlier this summer and then released from custody last week, and his trial in federal court is now scheduled for September 25th.

Bines has been a gay porn star with Raging Hot Falcon for the last few years, and the studio coincidentally released a brand new Chris Bines scene today, from a movie titled “Dark Matter.”

90482_02 90482_14While Bines’ co-conspirators are facing multiple felony counts for intent to distribute over 100 kilograms, as well as money laundering, Bines is facing just the one felony count for conspiring to distribute an unknown quantity (likely under 100 kilograms) of marijuana at next month’s criminal trial. If convicted, the seven other suspects could be sentenced to at least 10 years in prison due to the high quantity of drugs (over 100kg) and money laundering, and Bines could be sentenced to at least one year in prison.

potmugsBines/Sholly’s co-conspirators in the case include a father and son duo, as well as two suspects with the nicknames “Ginger” (seen above, just to the right of Bines) and “Bubba” (seen above, far right). Str8UpGayPorn has obtained a copy of the indictment filed in district court in Florida (of course):

Conditions of his release include not traveling outside of Florida, which means today’s Hot House scene (filmed in Las Vegas with co-star Johnny V.) was presumably filmed prior to his arrest last month, unless he received special travel permission from his pretrial services officer:

    I swear, officer, it’s for personal use… all 220 pounds of it…

    • erexshawn

      give me a reasonable time-frame and I could smoke that much.

  • Miloš Del Rey

    Ew those mug shots.

    At least Nica Nicole has a new plot for one of her movies. But replace conspirators with uncles and step brothers.

    • FrenchBug

      She does lesbian porn now, remember?
      Watch her tweet *new* female performers to entice them to work with her is entertaining.

    • Scrapple

      Ummm…is it wrong that I want to find out if “Ginger” can help with my indigestion?

      And we all know Mugshot #1 is Jaxton Wheeler in like five years.

      • GayhawkAZ

        Oh my god, #1 is totally Jaxon Wheeler! But I’m going to say in 3 years.

        • Scrapple

          Lol. I almost wrote three but I wanted to be generous.

    • Goodboy

      I think the first two are great. The 3rd one would best reflect my reaction.

      • wincrasher

        Note to self – always smile broadly when you are getting your Federal mugshot taken.

  • Scrapple

    Good golly Miss Sholly. Sure like to fall. Whooooo!

    I knew about Chris’ past misdeeds and wondered if that’s why he had disappeared. If he wanted to sell weed, why not do it the legal way? What a dumb thing to go down for. Can you imagine the conversation he needed to have with his offspring?
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3be1662fdd973af010841e6c35ed2c3276ac238289c0d72e29b6d28d2f8095c2.gif

    I’m guessing he’ll try to bang out (pun intended) as many scenes as he can in the next three weeks to stack that paper. For court. And commissary. Gentleman, this is why you should not engage in drug trafficking. Go with ass trafficking instead.

    • FrenchBug

      Dumb for him to do but even dumber for them to threaten him with jail for. I am not a smoker but for God’s sake, it is only weed. Is this really what we want to spend our time prosecuting?

      • Scrapple

        It’s either this or spend more time ignoring climate change.

      • Russell47

        Sessions needs something to do. Lying to Congress & trying to nullify minority voting rights aren’t enough……(his hood & burning cross materials must be gathering dust.). This thanx to fools like Ms Keller & the idiot formerly known as Bruce J

  • FrenchBug

    Meanwhile, in a largely unrelated piece of information, but tangetially relevant enough that I have an excuse to share, Blu Kennedy and boyfriend’s hearing has been postponed by almost exactly a month for the third month in a row.

    • NickDC

      THANK YOU for the update! The wheels of justice do not move fast. If you’ve seen the docket, what specifically was listed as the reason for the delay(s)? Thanks again for the update!

      • FrenchBug

        You’re welcome. And they don’t explain it. It’s just the third time in a row that when I check a few days before a scheduled hearing, it has disappeared from the court system and been rescheduled almost a month later to the day.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Also, OT… Jessie Colter has pulled his video with his account of his attempted murder/white supremecist attack. Hmmm…

    • FeydRautha

      Classic Münchausen syndrome. Same as that youtuber that faked his gay bashing…

      • sxg

        More than likely he was asked by detectives to pull it down in case they ever capture the guys who did this, their defense can use that video.

    • You’re really not trying if you haven’t at least tried to extort the shit out of your sugar daddy or got yourself into a underage hookup or at least done a few freaking drugs!

  • pje821

    He lost his appeal for me years ago when he ruined his looks with ink. But I’m not happy to read this news. Marijuana should be legalized and this crap wouldn’t happen. Control its distribution and tax it, like cigarettes. That said, he’s not a child and knew his behavior was risky; now he’ll pay the consequences.Like covering that beautiful body with ink, it was a stupid choice.

  • RaJ

    Johnny V would make the perfect Guile in a Street Fighter parody.

    **Too lazy to find appropriate gif for this comment**

    • sxg

      Yea I suggested that to him awhile back and he did in fact dress up like him!!!

    • sxg

      Yea I suggested that to him awhile back while he was camming and he did in fact dress up like him!!! Here’s a pic I found on twitter. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c2b2222a5c05991649a8792422e4b2c568d091111f0d36e6e93c466c81ab3f30.jpg

      • RaJ

        Thanks!

      • Scrapple

        You’re into some kinky shit. I approve.

        • sxg

          I’m not sure what’s kinky about wearing a costume that required very little effort considering how much he looks like him. If that’s what you consider kinky, then you don’t sound like a lot of fun in bed https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/65441d3b635c19cad0d28e9a06a0b09158e59cd1a424a9579a95db6ca89e50cd.gif

          • Scrapple

            Well you’re into fisting so I naturally assumed this cam show involved you dressing up like Charlie, and you and Johnny role played giving each other sonic booms and calling them “colonic booms.” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/81ab9b8d3edbde23aa9076988d7b63d2e3e93b388c11cca531336a466bf17b77.gif My mistake.

          • sxg

            Nah my sources tell me Johnny is not into fisting. He may have even mentioned it on cam since Joey D openly discussed on cam and twitter how much he enjoys it. That might have been another issue in their relationship.

          • Scrapple

            Joey likes fisting? He’s such a lazy top. I can’t imagine how he’d be as a fister. Sounds boring. And potentially dangerous.

          • sxg

            I don’t think he’s a lazy top. And he’s a pretty good fisting top. But it’s hard to tell since whoever has been directing and filming the Club Inferno Dungeon films these days is doing a terrible job.

          • Scrapple

            Whenever I’ve watched Joey in a scene it always seemed like the bottom was doing all the work, with Joey being dragged along for the ride. Even his scenes with Johnny looked like he was fucking a client and not a boyfriend.

  • Pertinax

    Two questions remain : The source…All this weed is produced in U.S. ilegally or is a mafia’s imported commodity? Did they buy it or some of them produced the one hundred kilos ? Shit! If all went well Bynes would earn around one hundred thousand dollars .

  • sanfv

    Some has a guaranteed position at men and Icon upon release.

  • NickDC

    I think it is a travesty that the other guys didn’t give Bines a “cool” nickname/aka like almost everyone else. His defense should be that he clearly wasn’t part of the conspiracy, that was just “Zack” “Bubba” “Ginger” and “Slim.” If no nickname fit, you must acquit.

  • erexshawn

    what is that neck jockstrap thing Johnny’s wearing and is it supposed to be sexy? Bines has long been a favorite and I think he has never looked hotter. I’ll smoke one in your honor, Chris

    • nick

      I thought “this is what hookers will be wearing a hundred years from now”.

  • Who what where when how…

    FOR WEED??? Ridiculous.

    • Hereweare

      OK, you beat me to it. I get my porn star – drug arrest stories mixed up. When I saw the headline, I thought it was the dude who smuggled meth up his moneymaker. But when I read the article, all I could think was……………..Like I said, you beat me to it.

    • CA

      I was coming to write the same thing! We are still arresting people for trees? Then I saw it was shady Florida–shocker.

      I’m going to go smoke a bowl–they decriminalized that shit in my state.

    • Maximus

      If they were distributing marijuana smuggled into the country by Mexican cartels, then they definitely deserve prison. Nobody should be helping those bastards make a profit. If the marijuana was grown in the U.S. without the involvement of violent gangs, then the case is definitely ridiculous. Of course, legalizing and regulating marijuana would cripple the drug cartels and keep all of these cases out of court, but that type of public policy is far too sensible for Jeff “Confederate Keebler” Sessions and his buddies in Congress.

      • sxg

        Well considering that 25% of today’s weed comes from Mexico there are plenty of people. Not only that, almost all of the cocaine in the US comes from Mexican cartel and they also supply a significant amount of other illegal narcotics to the US. So if you do drugs, you’re more than likely responsible for all the crime and death at the hands of Mexican and central american drug cartels and gangs. So thank you for that assholes.

  • FrenchBug

    Hold on a second. I had not realized his first scene in forever was being released TOMORROW.

    This indictment is two months old. And (sorry, Zach, but you’ll see my point in a second) this news was first published on friend-of-the-studios menofporn (I saw it on there a few hours before here and I even commented to myself that it was strange he would break that kind of news before you would although it was probably because you went the extra mile to get the indictment etc).
    But nevertheless this smells…

    You are not telling me that HotHouse INTENTIONALLY leaked the news to draw publicity for the scene? Or are we to believe this is entirely a coincidence?

    • Zachary Sire

      I was tipped to it yesterday from an anon source as well, but I had to find the indictment, details, etc. I actually do think it’s just a coincidence, seeing as the Justice Dept put out a press release on the indictment two months ago. The tip could’ve come in yesterday because Bines was released from custody a few days ago, or because the trial was originally supposed to start this week (it’s now been moved to 9/25).

      • FrenchBug

        Alright. If you think it is a coincidence, then I will trust your judgement. You know how to recognize publicity-whoring and studio BS better than anyone else.

  • sxg

    Oh thank god I’ve been waiting for something, ANYTHING, to get this alt-right-looking fucking bore of a performer removed from the gay porn industry.

    Goodbye to you and that hideous snaggletooth of yours. But jesus fuck by the looks of it, it wasn’t soon enough! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e6e06ded90dca93c7222f6d55af5ab9f80d28919c04d9dddfe6e4d2eef4153fa.gif
    My god how desperate are you for models, Hot House? First you let a plus-size Hugh Hunter do a fisting scene with you https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f17f867f36d34edf71fdcecbc12c7f857c0c8aaadc2ddbb32901e815e3b8f6f6.jpg
    And now this??? Next thing you know this studio will give Jake Cruise an exclusive contract! Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think I miss Christian Owen. I almost want to take back everything bad I said about him to come back. Anything I said about his husband still stands.

    • Marcus Collack

      “Plus size?”

      • sxg

        Yea watch the 2 scenes in that flip fuck fisting duo. He spends most of the time wearing clothes to try and hide his gut, but it doesn’t work. Hugh has always had a wider torso but he’s always managed to look fit. But not in this scene. He’s chunky and it doesn’t look that great on him.

    • McM.

      Chris Bines is alt-right?

      I learned something new today…

      • TalkDirtyToMe

        No he said “alt-right looking”. Whatever that is. This is how rumors get started.

      • sxg

        I said alt-right-looking. He ain’t actual alt-right afaik.

        • McM.

          My bad.

  • Hari Kalyan

    Honestly why can’t this happen to porn stars I actually care to hate…like Colby Keller? Can someone pls lock him up

  • Cosmic

    Is anyone shocked about anything that happens in the porn industry anymore…really?

  • BadCanBeGood

    He picked the wrong state. We need him here…. in Vegas.

    From Fox News:
    Since recreational sales began on July 1, dispensaries stocked up on recreational marijuana but became increasingly in short supply.

    Gov. Brian Sandoval signed emergency regulations that kept sales going until the tax commission vote was held. The Nevada Department of Taxation was worried that the new industry would essentially come to a halt if these new rules were not passed.

    “When businesses operate we get the tax revenue and that’s what the state wants.

  • PaulieP

    i guess he can show them on the inside what he learned on the outside…..

  • Donald Horn

    Has he fucked Johnny Rapid? He did fuck Tyler Sweet. I can’t find the scene though…

  • Drunky McDrunkerson

    of course Florida

  • emercycrite

    He looks ROUGH.
