Jarec Wentworth: “Sean Cody’s Aidan Introduced Me To Donald Burns”

Teofil Brank’s (a.k.a. gay porn star Jarec Wentworth) extortion trial begins on July 7th, and there have been several key developments in the last 24 hours—including a bombshell revelation involving Sean Cody’s Aidan (who’s now performing under the name Tryp Bates).

First, things went from bad to worse for Brank yesterday when judge John Walter denied the defense’s motion to dismiss that gun charge, which was the 7th count in the government’s superseding indictment filed last month.

From yesterday’s hearing:

The Court concludes that attempted extortion in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1951(a) as charged in Count Five of the FSI is a “crime of violence” as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)(3). Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss Count Seven of the First Superseding Indictment is DENIED.

If convicted on all seven charges, Brank faces at least 15 years in federal prison.

Also yesterday, the prosecution filed a declaration from FBI agent Jonathan Bauman in support of their motion to include a Str8UpGayPorn retweet as evidence that Jarec Wentworth, via his Twitter account, was threatening to expose private and personal sexual information about his alleged victim, Republican multimillionaire Donald Burns.

rtAs you’ll recall, Str8UpGayPorn’s RT of a @JarecWentworth tweet mentioning “Don” is the only evidence of the allegedly incriminating tweet, as Jarec Wentworth subsequently deleted his original tweet and, as the FBI agent states below, Twitter does not preserve records of deleted tweets.

Here are portions of the FBI agent’s declaration:

tweet1 tweet2 tweet3 tweet4 tweet5There were several exhibits attached to this declaration, one of which was an email exchange between Brank (writing from prison) and a man named Michael Hattig. Hattig, you might remember, is the mystery man and so-called friend of Brank’s who purportedly offered $250,000 to help get him released on bail.

Here is some of Brank and Hattig’s exchange, which starts with Brank asking Hattig to contact a female model named Helena. Brank, who’s clearly aware of all the attention he’s received since Str8UpGayPorn first broke the story of his arrest in March, also wants to know how many Twitter followers he has now.


Hattig’s response below reads as if he’s trying to ingratiate himself with Brank, but it’s unclear why.

Is Michael Hattig a fan? A former client? Just someone from the internet with way too many questions?

Finally, Teofil Brank emailed a lengthy response to Hattig. In it, he finally reveals that it was “Miles” (who I’ve confirmed is actually Sean Cody’s Aidan, a.k.a. Tryp Bates) who originally introduced him to Donald Burns. He also claims that the $500,000 Donald Burns gave to him was a “gift.”


Given this revelation about “Miles” (Sean Cody’s Aidan has repeatedly identified himself as “Miles” in previous Rentboy ads, and his scene with Jarek was released in December, 2012), we can now identify yet another Sean Cody model whom Donald Burns presumably paid to fuck.

miles donStr8UpGayPorn has already confirmed seven Sean Cody models whom Burns paid or attempted to pay to fuck (Randy, Curtis, Taylor, Jamie, Ashton, Jarek, and Arthur), and Miles/Aidan brings that tally to eight. And don’t forget, we know there are at least three other gay porn stars Burns paid or tried to pay to fuck, according to the FBI.

Are you one of the three remaining unidentified Sean Cody models whom Donald Burns tried to pay to fuck? If so, please get in touch with me. Anonymity guaranteed.


More from the Sean Cody scene that we now know helped to start this whole thing: Jarek barebacks and creampies Aidan (a.k.a. Miles).
