Gay Porn Star Busted For Selling $3.5 Million of Marijuana

Chris Bines is best known for his work as a gay porn star, but unfortunately, his claim to fame was just rocked dramatically.

The 31-year-old porn star was charged this weekend after being busted as part of a felony conspiracy in Florida, with intent to distribute at least 3,500 ounces of marijuana.

Bines, real name Steven Sholly, was sentenced to just under five years in prison. His arrest was a part of a much larger scheme in the Sunshine State, involving a few other men who were charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering.

While one defendant, David DelGiacco, was sentenced to only 30 days in custody of the Bureau of Prisons, the others (Charles Zachariah Sindylek, Brandon Craig Remeyer, and Andrew Paul Marcelonis) were given between 18 and 90 months in prison.

According to reports, the porn star shipped packages from California to Florida for others to distribute. The money was laundered through various bank accounts and mailed back to California.

Sholly was given until May 21st to self-surrender and begin his jail time, and will be supervised upon release for another three years.

While the actor frequently performed for Randy Blue, Men.com, and modeled for Falcon Students, unfortunately, his time as a porn star is over for now. But fear not, fans of Chris Bineslike the tattoo across his chest says, there’s always “hope.”
