cfimg-603697292800276150Some good news out of Florida for former gay porn star Matthew Rush, as Str8UpGayPorn can confirm that the felony meth possession charge he was facing following a September arrest has been dropped. The state’s new filing shows the case as “disposed,” as they had “no info” to pursue the charge:

noinfoAs reported by Str8UpGayPorn last month, the felony possession charge was based on “residue” found in a pipe Rush had in his possession, and the state likely realized they’d be unsuccessful pursuing that charge. The state is still going to proceed with the first count (possession/use of drug paraphernalia) for that pipe, but it’s only a misdemeanor charge:

miseThe first degree misdemeanor charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison, but that’s a lot better than the five years Rush was facing for the felony meth possession charge. As reported by Str8UpGayPorn last month, Rush had been out of jail on bond, but was then re-arrested when his bond was revoked for a traffic violation. He’s now been released on his own recognizance, with court dates for the misdemeanor forthcoming.

    That good for him now he can good to rehab and fix himself up and find a guy who can love him right this should teach him

  • OverKill

    Hopefully he can pull himself up and get his life back on track. Wish him all the luck.

  • Xzamilloh

    This should be a wakeup call for him, but we should be realistic. This won’t be his last time seeing the police.

  • Michael Regan

    I just want him to get better, get the help he needs, and live a happy life. Even if he never returns to porn, I just want him to be okay, live a good life after porn, like Carlo masi did.

    • Benton Fraser

      Has Carlo Masi ever explained why he quit the porn business?

      • Michael Regan

        He wanted to have a career as a maths teacher back in his home country, he now lives their with his husband

          Fortunately he didn’t lose his job last week when his students and the University found out about his prior porn career.

            Other countries aren’t hung up on sex and porn the way the U.S. is.

    No one wants to see Greg/Matthew get help and make a recovery more than I. Long-time fan of his work. I don’t know much about him as a person as he came through porn before social media was much of a “thing”…so obvi some issues with perhaps anger or anger fueled by drug use? This is an opportunity and I’ll bet, the judge would look at favorable sentencing for the paraphernalia charge if he’d go out and get treatment underway, like soon.

  • Robert Gee

    now I am not saying its ok, and I hope to hell, he is ok and can get it together and move ahead, and I know meth is a problem, but one has to wonder esp in florida, how many drunk drivers are flying up and down the highways while the police are spending time with him.

  • Hope he takes that as a sign that he needs to get his ass into rehab and get his life back on track.

  • n24rc

    A year in jail will get him motivated and back in the gym. Hopefully, he can reassess his demons in mandatory addiction counciling in jail.

  • Marcus Collack

    Why would a misdemeanor mean prison time, much less a whole year. The System is always trying to get free workers. If they wanted to help people have him go to rehab, not prison.
