A Homestead, Florida man who was charged with surreptitiously producing and distributing pornographic audio and video recordings of himself engaging in sexual activity with multiple men, pleaded guilty today in federal court in Miami.
Bryan Deneumostier, 32, also known by the screen name “susanleon33326,” pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal interception of oral communications.
According to the indictment to which Deneumostier pleaded guilty and to other facts he admitted in his plea agreement, Deneumostier assisted in the operation of a subscription-based pornography website. The site offered for streaming approximately 619 “hook up” videos that depicted sexual activity between Deneumostier and other men. The defendant had surreptitiously made audio and video recordings of the sexual encounters, without the victims’ knowledge or consent. He later sold the “hook up” videos to a third party located overseas and caused them to be posted onto the website. The indictment and plea agreement refer to three known victims whose identities are being withheld to protect their privacy. Deneumostier admitted that he recorded himself engaging in sexual activity with approximately 150 men that were featured on his website and that approximately 80 of those did not know that he was recording them.
WPLG reported: Agents with U.S. Homeland Security Investigations said that for at least four years, Deneumostier operated a website called “StraightBoyz” that promoted videos of straight men being conned into accepting sex acts by him while they were blindfolded or wearing blacked-out goggles. Authorities said the men did not realize the housewife they were meeting up with was actually a cross-dressing man.
The investigation was conducted by HSI. Senior Trial Attorney Mona Sedky of the Criminal Division’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Cary Aronovitz of the Southern District of Florida are prosecuting the case.
