Mr. Marcus Sent To Jail For giving Co-Porn Stars To Syphilis

Porn star Mr. Marcus was convicted of knowingly exposing two co-stars to syphilis and was sentenced to 30 days in jail Tuesday.

Mr. Marcus, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge of exposing another to a communicable disease, according to adult entertainment site Xbix. In addition to jail time, he received 15 days of community service and three years of probation.

The case is believed to be the first of its kind, LA Deputy City Attorney Diego Edber told the Pasadena Star News.

Mr. Marcus, 42, who believes he contracted the STD on set, admitted to altering his syphilis-positive test in July so that he could keep performing.

With the altered test, he filmed sex scenes with two actresses before a producer noticed that the STD form was altered and the actresses filed a police report, NBC reports. Neither of the actresses contracted the disease.

Black Porn LegendMr. Marcus’ altered test started a syphilis outbreak scare and moved the industry to self-impose a 10-day moratorium in August while actors were tested and treated for syphilis.

In an emotional interview with XBiz in August that brought the 18-year veteran actor to tears, Marcus said that he only altered the test because his doctor told him he would not be contagious 10 days after taking a shot of penicillin.

“I tried to cover it up… Because I said it was like the scarlet letter. It’s the word. Syphilis, whoa,” he said to XBiz. “I have to live with this, no one else does. I’m very sorry. I did not think that this would come out like this.”

Marcus was also arrested 12 days ago on suspicion of drunk driving and was being held on $200,000 bail, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Marcus’ case was used in a fierce debate last year about whether condoms should be mandated on porn sets. Despite strong outcry against it from the adult film industry, LA voters passed Measure B in November , requiring porn performers to wear condoms on set.

Mr. Marcus Admits He Started Syphilis Scare, Lied on STD Test

Black Porn Legend<———————– This fool ass nigga here!, has started another scared in the Porn World. His name is Mr. Marcus, a legendary Black Porn Star that been in the game forever! Well, if you don’t know its been a syphilis scare in the Porn Industry as of late. And Mr.Marcus has come forward and admitted that he tested positive for the STD. That is to say he has syphilis. Mr. Marcus met with reps from XBIZ and FSC and also admiited to lying about his std results to get more work. The XBIZ and FSC said:

Yesterday afternoon’s meeting was the first time Mr. Marcus admitted to being diagnosed as positive for syphilis, performing three times after that diagnosis, and willfully doctoring one test from Talent Testing Service.

Mr. Marcus said that as of yesterday each of the female performers he worked with since testing positive had re-tested negative for syphilis, which [FSC executive director Diane] Duke confirmed.”

It was reported he came forward to demolish rumors that there’s an outbreak of the disease. Mr. Marcus reportedly tested positive in July 12 and stayed off the sex for at least 10 days per doctors orders, and took penicillin, until July 24, when he came to a set and masked his STD results:

On July 24 Mr. Marcus shot a sex scene and alleges the producer didn’t ask for a paper copy of the test, nor did he verify on the computer that Marcus was cleared to work through the TTS database. The producer did ask Marcus to produce visual evidence, however, and Marcus said he was able to position a copy of the test on his cell phone screen so that the syphilis portion of the test did not appear visible. He claims the talent on set that day did not ask to see a copy of his test.”

I’ve wrote about this often about Black Porn Stars putting a stain on the Black Porn  Industry do to there nigga-acting ways. The Porn Industry is a legit business so you have to act as such. 1st, it was Darren James catching the HIV virus, then Brian Pumper lying about his tests, and now its Mr.Marcus catching syphilis and lying about it. Yall have to realize as black folks in the business they gonna always shine the light on our mistakes and faults. There’s scores of white guys and bitches that contracted STDS and lied on results but they shit get swept under the rug. Gotz to be more careful!
