The Rentboy.com Scandal:  UPDATE

As you surely know, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security raided Rentboy.com’s Manhattan offices on August 25th resulting in the arrest of seven people.  Why they waited nearly 20 years to come after the escort website and the motivations behind the prosecution continue to remain sketchy at best.  The case continues to both baffle and enrage the public.

Updates in regards to the case have been scare up to this point.  Str8UpGayPorn has, however, been able to obtain court documents in reference to some involved in the case.  It appears that five of the employees, who were among the seven indicted, are currently seeking plea deals.  The court documents, which were filed on September 18th, indicate that attorneys for defendants Shane Lukas (Hawk Kincaid), Sean Belman (Sean Van Sant), Edward Estanol (Eli Lewis), Dian Milagros Mattos (Coco Lopez), and Clint Calero have requested delays in indictments so that ongoing plea negotiations can take place.  It is unclear at this time what attorneys for CEO Jeffrey Hurant and employee Marco Decker will be seeking or if they will be filling separate motions for plea deals.

With little still known in regards to the case, it is clear that there is no end in sight for these unjustly prosecuted men and women.  We wish them the best in these dire times.
