Exclusive: Read The Letter Bruno Knight Wrote To The Judge Who Just Sentenced Him To Federal Prison

Posted December 4, 2014 by with 22 comments


It was the sad and sickening story that only Str8UpGayPorn broke in an exclusive report last July, and now it’s finally come to end.

ICYMI: Former gay porn star Bruno Knight tried to smuggle a half pound of crystal meth in his asshole while boarding a flight to London at LAX. On the jetway, federal agents quickly apprehended Knight, who confessed a few hours later and then defecated out three large containers—each one full of meth. Less than two months later, Knight (legal name Philip Gizzie) took a deal and pleaded guilty to one count of possessing meth with intent to distribute. A second smuggling charge was dropped from the indictment in exchange for his cooperation.

Now, this week, a federal judge has sentenced Bruno Knight to two years in federal prison, which will be followed by three years of supervised release. His defense attorney had hoped for a six-month sentence, telling City News Service, “He’s not a sophisticated drug dealer…it was mostly for his personal use.” A half pound of meth is for personal use?

Knight had obviously been hoping for leniency, too. In another Str8UpGayPorn exclusive, here is the letter Knight wrote to the federal judge who sentenced him, in which he actually begs for no prison time at all—something the judge obviously refused to consider.

phik1 phil2It’s too bad Knight wasn’t thinking about his family when he shoved a half pound of crystal meth up his butt and tried to board an airplane.


Also only on Str8UpGayPorn, here is another letter written to the sentencing judge. This one is from a friend of Knight’s looking to sway the judge’s opinion, and it includes a reference to a pony named “Pippin.”


While neither of these letters served as a get out of jail free card, things could’ve been a lot worse. Knight was facing a maximum sentence of twenty years, but only got two. And with good behavior, overcrowding, and time already served, he’ll probably be out in less than one.

    She went from teaching kids about drug use to riding Mr. Ed? Multifaceted queen.

      I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

    After reading about the new duckface model almost murdering his entire family, this is really nothing.

    But sad to see he will face some jail time, but at least it’s not the maximum sentence. I hope he gets himself back on his feet. And I hope he keeps up his physique while in jail. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him again in porn in 2 years. If there are even any porn studios left at that point.

  • Todd

    Did you edit out the part of Lorna’s letter that said “Our little Sophie just loves watching Philip’s movies …. for some reason they often remind Sophie of her beloved horse Pippin ….”

  • Jose

    First he needs to survive jail first…if any prisoner gets wiff he did gay porn…his ass will need reconstruction surgery. He fucked himself for doing something so stupid but who will hire him once he’s released? He made his options extremely limited unless he goes back to porn or becomes a – legit -drug counselor.

    • sxg

      “who will hire him once he’s released?”

      duckface, TIM, men.com, dickwadd/raw & rough, Raw fuck club, and I wouldn’t put it past Falcon/Raging/Hot House.

      • There will be no shortage of studios that will hire him…it is porn after all…

    • Entropyguy

      If he gets in protective custody he has a good chance at surviving prison, and if he stays clean and sober he has a good chance at an okay life once he’s released. Anyway, while prison rape is a concern, it’s not like prison is the 24/7 rape-fest you’re probably imagining.

    • Seaguy

      He’s in federal prison which is not as bad as state prisons.


    One would have thought that little girl Spohia would have been enough to keep on the right track . 2 years is not as long as it could have been so I hope he gets his life in order and wishing him the BEST OF LUCK !!!

  • Odetofear

    I’m not unsympathetic to his regrets and wish to be home with his ill mother, but do the crime, do the time. See you in two years.

  • NickDC

    From the letter that Philip wrote, one can easily see him being a useful tool/poster boy to help win public support for the continued efforts to legislate morality & suppress free speech in the United Kingdom. For those unaware, last year with a regulation by the four largest ISPs in the UK to block all porn unless the customer specifically opts-in with the ISP to view porn and then last week banned the filming of a number of sex acts in the UK. This is just the beginning and Philip’s story would help them continue to demonize porn and gain public support in their efforts to legislate morality in the UK.

  • Dave Crisp

    See This for a good explanation (from an attorney) of why he was never going to get twenty years (written two years ago about a very different case, but still relevant). Except for the very worst of the worst, “maximum” sentences are only ever used a scare factors to drive a plea bargain; and even if that fails they’re almost never handed out at trial. Claiming they could be is nothing but lazy journalism – though, as the Popehat article suggests, you’re far from the first to be guilty of this.

    I haven’t done the maths to be certain, but two years feels on the money for a first offence of this type.

    • zach

      Pointing out the maximum sentence has nothing to do with “lazy journalism,” and it isn’t “claiming” anything. It’s merely stating a fact.

      • Dave Crisp

        Sorry, but this is one of my pet peeves. It may be a fact that 20 years is the theoretical maximum sentence under the appropriate law, but it is NOT a fact that Knight was ever in any danger of getting it. Your last paragraph contains a clear implication that he was.

        • zach

          Again, no. The maximum sentence is being pointed out as a matter of fact. If you choose to comprehend it in a skewed way, that’s your problem.

  • Estelle

    Hey kids-

    Don’t smuggle meth in your asshole.

    Lesson over.

  • Seaguy

    You do the crime you serve the time.

  • Orlando Chan

    Did he really think that the judge was going to let him go back to the UK without serving any jail time in the US?
