Court records suggest that porn star Trinity St. Clair, likely a wanted fugitive, is trying to clean up her criminal record. But for what purpose?
Days after the 2013 Exxxotica Expo in Edison, New Jersey wrapped on October 6, police in the town of New Castle, Delaware responded to an alleged shoplifting incident.
New Castle is 96 miles from Edison and lies just south of Wilmington, Delaware; a little more than half-way between Edison and Baltimore, Maryland.
The female shoplifting suspect taken into custody and booked that October day was none other than porn starlet Trinity St. Clair.
St. Clair was charged with shoplifting under § 840 of the Delaware Code.
“When the goods, wares or merchandise shoplifted are of the value of less than $1,500, it is a class A misdemeanor.”
St. Clair was released on her own recognizance (O.R.) and ordered to appear in court at a later time. However, she did not to appear and a “Capias” Failure to Appear (FTA) warrant (known elsewhere as a bench warrant) was issued in Justice of the Peace Court 11 in New Castle. Presumably she had quickly fled the jurisdiction.
References to both the arrest and the warrant may be found online via the “Online Wanted Person Review” of DELJIS, the Delaware Criminal Justice Information System.
The listing even includes a link to the CrimeStoppers Tip Line.
Telephone calls to authorities in Delaware today revealed that they could not readily see any information to suggest the four year-old matter had been resolved. Consequently, we requested the full case file to clear up the status of St. Clair’s warrant and the underlying criminal case.
However, the shoplifting case and the FTA warrant are not the most intriguing part of our story.
Curiouser and curiouser
We’ve long known that Trinity has a series of criminal cases in Shasta County, Calif., whence she hails. Here are samples of the publicly available information on her criminal record in and around Redding, Calif. None reveal the specific charges; they are only listed as criminal misdemeanors.
The truly fascinating part may be found in notations on the cases on the official County Court website.
The records indicate that the cases were closed and the files in each case were destroyed on November 16, 2017.
These cases were each filed, and resolved, on different dates, yet their files were destroyed on the same day, last week. This must have been done by special request.
Why would Trinity St. Clair suddenly feel the need to have items removed from her California record of criminal convictions? Is there some enterprise she is or may become involved in where such a move might help her?
A business move?
This is merely speculation, but Trinity has ben representing adult talent as a “manager” for some time, and is currently involved in a costly lawsuit brought against her by licensed, bonded talent agencies. Could it be that Trinity is trying to clean up her record so she can get a bond and license to run a legal agency in California (or elsewhere)?
And what effect might the Delaware shoplifting case have upon such a plan?
We hope to be able to shed more light own these and other matters once the slew of requested court documents relating to Trinity St. Clair’s criminal record are in our hands.
