Jarec Wentworth’s Lawyers Want To Reveal His Alleged Victim’s Identity (Even Though The Internet Already Did)

The alleged victim identified only by initials (“D.B.”) in Jarec Wentworth/Teofil Brank’s extortion case, which was broken exclusively by Str8UpGayPorn last week, does not want his full name revealed, and his lawyers have now filed a motion to suppress that identity, unless or until there’s a trial. Brank’s defense lawyers, meanwhile, filed their own brief yesterday seeking to block the alleged victim’s motion and reveal his identity.

The defense’s reasoning hinges largely on their assertion that D.B. is not protected under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act:


The defense goes on to argue that the government has already admitted that D.B. has engaged in criminal conduct, and therefore should have no expectation of privacy. The part about the underage “boys” is particularly disturbing, for obvious reasons.


D.B.’s identity being published in the public sphere is no doubt referring to comments left on Str8UpGayPorn and other blogs. And while I (and many of you) might have an idea of who “D.B.” is, Str8UpGayPorn still can not confirm his identity. Would it be reasonable to connect a public figure who has ties to Wentworth/Brank and who has the same initials as D.B. (Donald Burns, for example) to this case? Maybe! That’s up to you.

More from the defense’s brief :


On Monday, March 30th, Str8UpGayPorn published another exclusive connecting wealthy telecommunications executive Donald Burns (who has the initials “D.B.”) to Jarec Wentforth/Teofil Brank and multiple Sean Cody models, with whom Burns was seeking to arrange “private meetings,” via Wentworth/Brank. Is that the blog post the defense is citing to further their argument that D.B.’s identity should be revealed?

Wentworth/Brank’s bail hearing is still scheduled for tomorrow morning.
