Gay Porn Star Chris Bines Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison for Selling A Lot of Marijuana

Looks like it wasn't a happy 4/20 holiday for gay porn star Chris Bines at all.

Str8UpGayPorn has reported that the Randy Blue, Falcon Studios and Men.com star (real name Steven Michael Sholly) has been sentenced to 59 months (1 months short of 5 years) for conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to commit money laundering alongside four other co-conspirators. 

They actually earned (and then laundered) more than $3.5 million from the marijuana sales over the course of three years.  Bines received the lengthy prison sentence due to the actual amount of marijuana that they sold (more than 100kg.)

Press Release from the Florida U.S. Attorney's Office:

Five defendants were sentenced to federal prison this week after having pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Yesterday, the following defendants were sentenced on both charges: Charles Zachariah Sindylek, 32, of Pensacola, 90 months in prison and David DelGiacco, 56, of Lake Forest, California, 30 days in custody of the Bureau of Prisons. Brandon Craig Remeyer, 35, of Trabuco Canyon, California, 72 months in prison and Andrew Paul Marcelonis, 32, of Pensacola, 18 months in prison.

Also today, Steven Ryan Michael Sholly, 31, of Milton, was sentenced to 59 months in prison on conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Between 2014 and 2017, the defendants conspired to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana in the Northern District of Florida.  Johnson, William Brett Brownell, Sholly, and others in the Pensacola area ordered the marijuana from Sindylek and Remeyer, who shipped packages of marijuana from California to Florida with the assistance of DelGiacco. Johnson, William Brett Brownell, and Sholly then sold the marijuana in Florida with the assistance of Marcelonis, William Ezra Brownell, and others. The cash proceeds of the marijuana distribution were laundered through bank accounts, and later mailed to addresses in California. More than $3.5 million in cash proceeds from the sale of marijuana was laundered during the time frame of the conspiracy.

He originally pled guilty in October of 2017 to conspiring to distribute $1 million worth of marijuana.

Per Str8UpGayPorn, Bines, who has been out of custody during court proceedings, was ordered to self-surrender by May 21st, 2018 and begin his 59-month sentence. Upon his release in 2023, he’ll be on supervised release for an additional three years.

Guess he'll be looking forward to much soap dropping in the shower room.
