Pornstar Mr. Marcus sent to jail for 30 days following Syphilis scandal
It’s not fun to be Mr. Marcus these days. As you may recall, Mr. Marcus caused a full blown shit-storm last year when he contracted syphilis, covered it up, and continued to shoot unprotected sex scenes with other pornsars. As a result of those misadvised actions, Mr. Marcus was sentenced to prison for knowingly exposing others to a communicable disease.
News of the sentencing of Mr. Marcus was reported in USA Today after the adult actor was sentenced to 30 days in prison by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Catherine Ewell after he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge…
The 42-year-old actor, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, was also ordered to perform 15 days of community service and serve three years on probation.
His infection was discovered in July 2012 during a routine industry screening before he was to begin making a film. He immediately received a penicillin shot, but when he was rescreened 11 days later he still showed signs of syphilis.

Spencer is jailed on $200,000 bail in an unrelated drunken driving case. An e-mail was sent to his management company seeking comment.
