Back in September we reported that a Florida man named Bryan Deneumostier had pleaded guilty to charges he blindfolded straight men and tricked them into making gay porn for the website StraightBoyz at his home south of Miami.
XBIZ’s Rhett Pardon has an update to the story, writing that
The Justice Department has asked a federal court to beef up sentencing for Bryan Deneumostier, the operator of the defunct website StraightBoyz.net who pleaded guilty in September to two federal counts of illegal interception of oral communications.
In court papers filed on Friday, federal prosecutors said that Deneumostier’s “egregious behavior” over several years is reason enough to depart upwards with sentencing guidelines.
The Justice Department is seeking 96 months, or eight years, imprisonment for Deneumostier.
Deneumostier, 33, known by the screen name “susanleon33326,” admitted to tricking at least 80 straight men into gay sex by posing as a housewife on Craigslist. He said he engaged in sex with 150 men – with over half unaware of his production of the secret videos and the other half aware of it.
According to GayStarNews, in 2015, “Deneumostier posed as a housewife and lured men from the nearby Homestead Reserve AirBase. When the men arrived at the home, they agreed to be blindfolded or wear blacked-out goggles. Deneumostier tied the men to a chair and gave them headphones.”
Deneumostier was arrested in July and has been held in custody since then.
