Gay porn star Mike Dozer, whom we recently saw getting his ass raped with a wrench in Raging Stallion’s Open Road, was arrested in December for the statutory rape and reckless endangerment of a 14-year-old boy in Pennsylvania.
As the Philadelphia Gay News reports, Dozer, whose real name is Christopher Steele, met the boy on the hookup site Jack’d and drove to his house in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania from his home in Delaware. Apparently he gave the kid poppers and may or may not have disclosed his HIV status.
He’s currently being held in a Montgomery County jail on $1,000,000 bail.
Dozer’s lawyer, Kevin Wray, contends that Dozer was not aware that the boy was underage and that he tried to remove himself from the situation once he figured it out. Also, he says, the reckless endangerment charge was added last week out of ignorance and homophobia on the part of prosecutors, though it’s not clear whether Dozer had protected or unprotected sex with the boy. Still, Wray had this to say in a statement:
[The charge] bothered me a great deal and seemed to be offensive. He takes medication and is constantly moderating it. Charging someone with [reckless endangerment] because they are HIV-positive is homophobic and ignorant. We don’t go to people who have herpes, colds, Strep throat and charge them. If that is the standard, they need to be indicting everybody. It’s amazing that, 35 years later, the public is still oblivious to the simple fact that HIV does not equal AIDS
In any event, we won’t be seeing Dozer in porn anytime soon. He’s due back in court for an arraignment on February 27, and he also faces charges of “involuntary deviant sexual intercourse,” and aggravated indecent assault.
Update: According to this report, police are saying Dozer “expressed he did not care if the victim was underage, he still wanted to have sex with the victim.” This all happened between June and August of last year, and it’s unclear when or why the 14-year-old came forward.
Update Feb. 27: Dozer/Steele has plead not guilty to all charges and will return to court in April. He remains in jail.
