Judge Dismisses Murder Case Against Big-Dicked Gay Porn Star Josh Logan

Posted February 17, 2017 by with 45 comments

sethwGreat news for fans of big-dicked gay-for-pay porn stars accused of murder, as a big-dicked gay-for-pay porn star accused of murder named Josh Logan (a.k.a. Seth Wales, a.k.a. Champ) is about to be released from jail and will be free to fuck again after over three years behind bars.

Logan (real name John Snavely) had been accused of murdering a rich, older gentleman friend (Sam Del Brocco) in Florida (of course), but per a defense lawyer, the evidence was entirely circumstantial. It took a while, but a judge finally agreed, and she dismissed the case. Via Washington Post:

Though Broward County sheriff’s detectives recovered the murder weapon, fingerprints and DNA from the scene, they had no suspects until they connected with John “Champ” Snavely, a star of gay porn films and a dancer in gay clubs in the Fort Lauderdale area. Snavely’s DNA was on a Coke can in the trash of Del Brocco’s apartment and his fingerprints were on the outside of Del Brocco’s car.

Snavely’s defense lawyer, H. Dohn Williams, pointed out that DNA from hair on the knife used to kill Del Brocco was not Snavely’s, that DNA on a partially smoked marijuana joint was not Snavely’s, that bloody shoe prints in the house did not match Snavely, and that DNA and fingerprints in Del Brocco’s car came from someone else.

Williams filed a motion to dismiss the case, citing Florida case law which holds that circumstantial evidence cases “cannot be sustained unless the evidence is inconsistent with any reasonable hypothesis of innocence.”

Broward Circuit Court Judge Ilona M. Holmes held a hearing in December on Williams’ motion to dismiss, to which she noted Broward prosecutors did not file a written response. […] Though courts in many states might allow prosecutors to at least present the evidence to a jury, Florida allows its judges to take a hard look at a case before trial. And for the murder charge against Snavely, Holmes concluded, “This evidence is not enough.”

More details in full WaPo story.

Prosecutors have 15 days to appeal the decision, and assuming they don’t, Logan/Snavely will be released from jail, where he’s been since 2013. If he does return to porn (hey, why not!), it will likely be straight porn, which is where he was working towards the end of his career, when he was arrested.

In gay porn, he filmed a few horrible movies for a now defunct studio, but I think he launched his career as “Seth Wales” for CollegeDudes in 2008 or 2009.

Here’s hoping some gay porn studio snatches him up for some horrible new scenes (I’m talking to you, Men/Bromo).

    Maybe he’s not so G4P after 3 years in the pokey. Pun intended.

  • sanfv

    Uh oh, hopefully this doesn’t inspire G4P models to murder the wealthy Johns they blackmail.

    Vadim Black has been real chummy chummy with a nascar official, I hope he doesn’t put that new gun to use.

    • Zachary Sire

      I guess DB got off lucky.

      • Marik Ishtar

        Donald Burns was smart enough to tell some powerful colleagues about his activities incase something happened. Unfortunately, Brocco told no one and secluded himself from any safeties.

    • WhimsyCotton

      HOW!? Vadim Black looks like a fucking bridge troll these days. He’s not even good enough for budget studios, and I bet BSB only took him back for nostalgia not because he’s anything to look at anymore. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b0cd24be545f19d89ac09a139c48fa4a2d3aea11e2ca73036ccec691f55901c1.gif

      • sanfv

        I love how nostalgia status in gay porn is like 6-7 months lol.

        Well, at least the good sis got her $250 scene rate at bsb. As long as Katelin is happy, I’m happy.

        • WhimsyCotton

          Us shallow audiences operate on dog years.

      Sloppy prosecutions are not cute, but they are very Florida.

  • Marik Ishtar

    Return to straight porn? Please. He’ll have so many men lined up for him now because of the added sense of ‘danger’ he will never have to shower alone again. Yep, John will be tricked out and flown around until he hits 29, then tossed aside for the newest vanilla flavor. He’ll retire with a wife who won’t ask questions as to how he made his money but will take note of all the photos he has of wealthy men. 10 years time when he frivolously spends all his money (new money always does) he’ll be back sending auditions to studios inquiring if his usual scene rate is still available. But alas, when old friends don’t call, he’ll write a tell-all book about the tragedies that befall an advantaged man and how society dismissed him because of his sexual activity and be branded a hero.

      Well that was summed up rather nicely.

    I’m getting more offended by the Florida (of course) thing. Not everyone from Florida is crazy, there are crazies everywhere.

    • Mike Julius

      But, like their orange juice, most of it is concentrated there even though they claim it isn’t.

      • Wig Snatcher

        Concentrated with incestual sperm that is…

    • Javier Smith

      One of the main reasons why Florida is always on the news with crazy stuff is that, unlike many other states, their police reports are considered public information and are open to the Associated Press (AP). Another reason is that a lot of crazy redneck meth-users live there. :)

      • Dazzer

        No. Florida is crazy.

        I was holidaying in Florida with some snowbird relatives in Boca Raton. Every day I would take a short ferry ride to a small island where I would prove that even the Florida sun couldn’t tan my pasty British skin.

        One day, I went to get the ferry and found the ferry captain having a fight with the police, who wanted him to take them over to the island where a murder had taken place.

        The ferry captain kept on claiming that the police needed a warrant to get on his boat and then took the key out of the dashboard and swallowed it in front of the police and everyone. He kept on shouting:”Go on. Arrest me. You don’t have a warrant. You can’t arrest me on my own boat.”

        So the police arrested him and I went back to the condominium and read a book while telling a semi-tame alligator to fuck off.

        • Russell47

          Good God, that’s funny. You would have been better off going to Brighton (Semi tame alligator? Are you sure it wasn’t Rush Limbaugh?)

        • Bruser

          they don’t call em crackers for nothing

      • Pinko of the Grange

        Kill joy :)

  • King

    Three years? That seems a little long. I am surprised his lawyer didn’t push for dismissal for lack of a speedy trial or at the very least a motion to revisit bail so he didn’t have to be locked up for so long.

  • Scrapple

    This injustice should’ve never happened. Everyone knows g4p murderers don’t drink Coke. They prefer Pepsi.

    Cuz it sounds like “pussy.”

    • Wig Snatcher

      I died at Pepsi = pussy… you know Lana Del Ray did say her pussy tastes like Pepsi cola though so you might be on to something

      • Scrapple

        Don’t sleep on that Pepsi Pussy henny. Carbonated cunts make for fizzy jizz.

        I’m doubled over at that Lana comment. That sounds like something she’d say. Did she specify a flavor? Cherry? Vanilla? Cherry Vanilla? I bet she got that Crystal Pepsi Pussy. Now I’m going to have to listen to the song.

        • Wig Snatcher

          The song is called “Cola”… and it is hypnotic!!

          The first line starts with “my pussy tastes like Pepsi cola”… no flavored indicated. I’d gladly go str8pay for Lana… but I’m sure we’d end up just discussing her provocative lyrics over cups of Lady GaGa tears or something…

          I admit: Touche. Touche, mofo.

  • C A

    I wonder will they charge him with kidnapping imprisoning his then 15 yr old GF?

  • Wig Snatcher

    Is FLA just full of shitty things and shitty people? I’m completely convinced nothing good comes from that place… ugh https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cc0404eedb9c53d7908b349c865b0f5f98154fb7e471aea61bd917f6be4ea611.gif

    • Marc Michales

      Its all because you can’t go any further south than Fl. – trust me, if there was another state south of Fl. they would get all the scum the northern states send down here. Rarely are these crazies native Floridians. . .

  • Mokojojo

    I wonder if his release has some sort of condition where he doesn’t sue because this case was just sloppy as hell. I don’t know if he’s guilty or not (I lost my psychic powers when “That’s so Raven” was cancelled.), but he’s been in jail for years and the damn bloody shoeprints or DNA on the murder weapon did not come from him. That’s f*cked up.

  • WhimsyCotton

    Honestly, does anything good other than the occasional hot Cuban come from Florida? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/14462c0679278a67e1498c28714c8c1f564de88e7fdf59369415517a21f9bb33.gif

    3 years! Did he have a public defender, that went into a coma. He should sue the city, because 3 years on that flimsy no evidence. That is a gross violation of the 6th Amendement. Frank Delfino “How to get Away with Murder.”
