Mr. Marcus sentenced to 30 days in jail for exposing co-stars to syphilis

In a Los Angeles courthouse Tuesday, porn star, Mr. Marcus pleading no contest to knowingly exposing his co-stars to syphilis, according to multiple news outlets.

The 42-year-old actor, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, was sentenced to 30 days in jail, 15 days of community service and three years of probation by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Catherine Ewell.

Marcus has said that when he got sick, he received a penicillin shot and believed he was free of syphilis. But subsequent to shooting a sex scene, he showed syphilis in his system, according to the LA Times.

Last August the adult film industry was turned upside down when it was disclosed that the veteran porn star reportedly altered a positive sexually transmitted infection (STI) lab report, omitting his syphilis status to producers so he could perform in sex scenes putting other performers at risk.

This prompted a temporary shutdown on the production of adult films nationwide.

Twelve days ago, Mr. Marcus was also arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and was held for $200,000 bail.

Syphilis is an STI caused by the bacterium, Treponema pallidum. The most common way to get syphilis is by having sexual contact (oral, genital or anal) with an infected person.

    THIS STORY IS NOT SURPRISING; BUT, IT IS HYPOCRITICAL. I HAVE ONLY SEEN ONE Mr. Marcus scene; HE IS NOT HANDSOME, HIS GENITALIA IS NOT HANDSOME AND HIS SCENES DO NOT SUPPORT SEXUAL AROUSAL.

    THE HETEROSEXUAL ADULT-FILM INDUSTRY UNDERSTANDS ITS VIEWERS WANT TO SEE SEXUAL ACTIVITY WITHOUT CONDOMS BECAUSE HETEROSEXUALITY IS – IN THEIR VIEW – THE ONLY NATURAL SEXUAL ORIENTATION BECAUSE IT IS REQUIRED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF CHILDREN.

    THEREFORE, THIS IS A NON-STORY BECAUSE HETEROSEXUAL ACTORS SHOULD REALIZE SEXUALLY-TRANSMITTED DISEASES ARE A “NECESSARY EVIL” WHEN TRYING TO HAVE/MAINTAIN A HIGH VOLUME OF VIEWERSHIP.
