Lies Trickery Fabrication Deceit


Let’s talk about lies trickery fabrications and deceit. This could very well be why Bryan Kocis was murdered. A nice anonymous poster on my Blog posted a Time’s Leader newspaper story written by Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff writer, he may be reached at (570) 829-7196 or by e-mail. elewis@timesleader.com
. It is all about Bryan Kocis’s charges being reduced from sexual abuse of children to a much lesser corruption of minors.

Kocis was arrested in July 2001, after a then 15-year-old boy claimed Kocis raped him twice.
Bryan met the boy on the Internet and took him to his home on 2 different occasions. The boy states that Kocis gave him a Pepsi mixed with water after he drank it he then felt sleepy. Kocis also videotaped their sexual encounters.

Attorney Albert J. Flora Jr., who defended Kocis on sex assault charges and briefly represented him in an unrelated civil case, met with investigators on Thursday. Flora kept in touch with Kocis but he would not disclose what was said in the meeting or if Kocis had received any threats on his life. Flora said he met with investigators voluntarily. The defense attorney clarified a mistake that is listed on Luzerne County Court records about Kocis’ criminal case from 2001.
Most felony and misdemeanor sex offenses were dropped against Kocis because the boy lied about his age and didn’t want to testify, said Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Tokach.
I wonder why the boy did not want to testify was he bribed or threatened or both?

Kocis pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of children when authorities recovered a videotape of him having sex with the boy. He was sentenced to one-year probation in May 2002.
Tokach recalled Friday that neither he nor the court ordered Kocis to register with the state police as a sex offender under the state’s Megan’s Law. “Sometime after (Kocis’) sentencing, Megan’s Law got changed,” Tokach said. “He was never notified by the court to register. I don’t even know if he was required to do so at that time. Since then, amendments were added to Megan’s Law making (sexual abuse of children) to be a registered offense.”
This is really strange because he molested a boy but was not required to register as a sex offender that is a blatant oversight on the prosecutor and the Judges part. It is also just plain stupidity on the part of the judicial system in Luzerne County. Also of note Bryan never appeared in any of the other videos he shot for Cobra Studios.

Here is where things start to get interesting. It would appear that Bryan Kocis knew that Sean Lockhart was underage all along and he used this to his advantage.
Like I said it is all very suspect. He gets his charges changed after the fact and uses the facts of Sean Lockhart’s ID fraud to do it. This is a quote from the district attorney of Luzerne County.



Lies


“Tokach said the boy was under a contract with Kocis to model for Cobra Video and provided two fake forms of identification that showed the boy was 18 years old.”

This I find quite interesting. The boy they are referencing is not the victim of the original abuse. He was not under contract to Cobra Studios. They are using Sean Lockhart AKA Brent Corrigan to get Bryan’s charges reduced. They do this Because of a change in the Megan’s Law registration requirements. And this is also done so that Bryan’s Federal case against Sean Lockhart and LSG Media will not be thrown out of Court.


Trickery


(Here is direct confirmation from the DA himself.)
“Tokach said he believed state police revisited Kocis’ registration requirements when Kocis’ company, Cobra Video, filed a civil lawsuit against an actor in the Southern District of California last year.”


Fabrication



Bryan was stacking the deck against Sean Lockhart from day one.
July 21st 2004: Sean Lockhart Began modeling for Cobra Video under the name Brent Corrigan and signed a 1-year exclusive contract. Cobra alleges that Sean provided ID that he was over 18 years of age.
The Id was forged Sean admits this and Bryan knows as well. Bryan was never 2257 compliant in regards to Sean Lockhart (Brent Corrigan) the ID he had on file was a faxed copy of Sean’s ID.

July 2004: Mr. Kocis produces first adult films with client, Sean Lockhart, (AKA Brent Corrigan super twink of the new millenium), who becomes the featured star on Mr. Kocis’ Web site. “The Cobra Prince”
These first movies were later pulled from the market due to Sean’s underage status. But they were the highest grossing porn movies of that year. The fact that they were pulled from the market cost a lot of people a lot of money.

July 17th 2005: Sean Lockhart renews his Cobra contract and gets a car form Cobra as a signing bonus.
This car becomes part of the claim in the civil suit against Sean Lockhart.

July 2005 Cobra video registers the domain name WWW.brentcorriganxxx.com to exploit the famous mark “Brent Corrigan” in which Cobra invested time and money and resources in order to promote such famous trade name for the benefit of Cobra video. (Direct quote from the civil suit documents.)
Cobra does this in response to people posting pictures of Brent on various web-sites. He also accuses Sean of doing this as well. Cobra Video had Sean under an exclusive contract that was draconian.

August 21st2005: Cobra Video manager Bryan Kocis signed over the title to 1 Volkswagen Jetta to Sean Lockhart as payment for work all ready done and work to be Completed at a later date.
This is just me but I think this was to keep Sean quiet about the underage issue. It is also around this time where the threats to Sean became more pronounced.

August 22nd 2005: Cobra Video filed an application with the United States Trademark and Patent Office to register the words “Brent Corrigan” as a trademark. The registration application is pending with application Serial No. 78697319
Bryan does this with out notifying Sean of this when it has been established that most if not all actors retain the use of their stage names. There are several cases to choose from to use as an example.

September 2005: Cobra Video Claims Sean Lockhart breached his contract.
Sean counter claims this is due to threats made by Cobra Video and it’s President Bryan Kocis to his personal safety. Sean also states that Cobra Video voided the contract for failure to pay him for scenes he had shot for the company. (This is also listed in the civil case documents.)

September 13th 2005: Mr. Lockhart’s attorney Chad Belville claims Mr. Lockhart was underage when he began working for Mr. Kocis. Mr. Kocis responds he was given legal identification proving Mr. Lockhart was of legal age. Cobra Video pulls the disputed titles staring Brent Corrigan from the market as a result of this announcement.
Sean and his lawyer do this Because of the repeated threats From Bryan Kocis and Cobra Video.
(Part of the deposition by Sean Lockhart in the civil suit)


October 4th 2005: Brent Corrigan online is registered as a domain name and the web-site goes online. BCO is owned by LSG Media and not affiliated in anyway with Cobra Video LLC and has all new and original content.
Bryan threatens their web service provider that he will sue them and they drop Sean’s web site.Bryan also Claims that they are using his trademarked content on the site (Brent Corrigan's images) all the images on the site are new and they were not taken by Bryan Kocis and had nothing to do with Cobra Video

December 6th 2005: A Cobra release states in part: "The Writ of Summons was filed through Cobra Video’s legal counsel, attorney Al Flora of Wilkes-Barre. Sean Lockhart has also been notified by Cobra Video’s legal counsel that he must appear in Luzerne County [Pennsylvania] on December 6, 2005 to submit to an oral deposition under oath regarding matters relating to his entry into a modeling contract with Cobra Video, the fulfillment or non-fulfillment of the terms of that contract, whether or not Lockhart fraudulently induced Cobra Video to enter into modeling contracts for the purposes of obtaining trade secrets of Cobra Video and whether or not Lockhart conspired with John Doe to engage in such fraud."
Sean does not attend the hearing on the advice of his legal counsel. Because this is a bogus lawsuit it was never filed in the courts. There are other reasons he will not go back to Pennsylvania number one is the fear for his safety because of threats made by Bryan. The John Doe they are referring to is Sean’s ex-boyfriend who was in the first movie Sean did with Cobra Video. They knew who he was but did not list him on the summons. It was also easier to have Sean's word against Bryan's with no other witnesses.

December 15th 2005: Cobra video receives a Trademark filing no.3338162 with the state of Pennsylvania that registered the words “Brent Corrigan” as a State of Pennsylvania Trademark.
This Trademark is only valid in the state of Pennsylvania.

February 2006: Mr. Kocis sues Mr. Lockhart and LSG Media in Federal court for breach of contract and Copy-write infringement and cyber squatting regarding a breached contractual agreement.
This lawsuit is filed so that Bryan can prove fraud on the part of Sean Lockhart and not go to prison for child abuse against Sean and the production of child pornography. As well not to lose his business due to possible charges brought against him.


Deceit



July 13th 2006:In July 2006, Flora and Tokach agreed to amend Kocis’ guilty plea from sexual abuse of children to corruption of minors that prevented the boy from testifying at a Megan’s Law hearing.“There was a serious mistake of the boy’s age. Nobody really wanted to try this case,” Flora said. “Plus, I don’t think the boy’s family wanted to go to trial.”
The change was officially made on July 13, 2006, by Luzerne County Judge Michael T. Conahan, who hand wrote on the order, “not subject to any Megan’s Law provisions,” according to court records. “It worked out for everyone’s benefit,” Flora said.

This statement by Al Flora is very telling. He assumes the boy’s family does not want to go to trial. And he also takes away their right by changing Bryan’s charges hereby preventing the boy he abused from testifying in a Megan’s law hearing. They also use Sean Lockhart in this bit of collusion to make it seem like he was the boy from the first case. This is why I think that Bryan new all along that Sean Lockhart was underage. And I believe that he used Sean to get his charges reduced and to stop the other boy from testifying at a Megan’s Law Hearing. The last statement Al Flora makes is quite prophetic. Because the only person this whole thing really did not work out for was Bryan Kocis who seemed to orchestrate the whole thing. This is the most plausible reason for why Bryan Kocis was killed. He sues Sean and LSG in federal court for ID fraud and other charges. Then used Sean Lockhart to get his charges reduced form Sexual abuse of a child to corruption of a minor this also stops his original victim from testifying against him in a Megan’s Law hearing. Then he settles the whole case and gets the records of the settlement sealed. He should of been free and clear but he ran LSG Media out of money and their attorney pulls out for lack of payment and now the case is a public record. Al Flora knows that Bryan was threatened and he probably knows who was doing it. It could of very well of been him or the Judge Michael T. Conahan or the Assistant DA Tokach who reduced his charges. I bet if you check Bryan’s Bank records you will probably see some large withdrawals in July of 2006. Someone said in a post on Jason’s Blog that “if you want to know who did this follow the money” I do believe he was right. With tricks like this it is understandable why someone would want to kill him. Don’t get me wrong I am not condoning murder I think the man should be in prison along with his Attorney the Judge and the Asst. DA. this bit of corruption cost a man his life. This is clearly what happens when you derail the judicial process. People take the law into their own hands. Who really knows how many other boys Bryan did this to. The sad thing is we will probably never know.

Elmysterio and I’m out


I just want to clarify a few things I am not accusing the Judge or the Asst. D.A. or Al Flora of Bryan’s murder. What I am saying is that due to their possible corruption they have denied someone justice.
This fact could have lead someone to take the law into their own hands. I hope that clears a few things up.

  1. People and Politicians in Luzerne County who want to bring down Judge Michael Conahan' Political Empire clearly plan to use Bryan Kocis against Judge Michael Conahan (either when Conahan runs for re-election and/or in a judicial misconduct complaint against Conahan).

    It is important to note that the 2006 change in Kocis' 2002 Guilty Plea retroactively provided Judge Michael Conahan with a defense as to why Conahan did NOT order Kocis register as a sex offender in 2002. In a judicial misconduct complaint, Conahan can say that he did not order Kocis register as a sex offender because the original guilty plea was "a clearical error". This has already been done in the press by Conahan's lawyers (The Luzerne County DA and Al Flora).

    There is a female Judge currently in a judicial misconduct proceeding who claims that the proceeding was initiated by Judge Michael Conahan because he spoke out against how Conahan was running the Luznere County Courts.

    ReplyDelete
  2. correction:
    The female Judge in Luzerne County who is the subject of a judicial misconduct complaint has hinted that the proceeding was initiated by Judge Michael Conahan because the female judge was a very vocal opponent of how Michael Conahan was running the Luzerne County courts.

    So, Michael Conahan clearly has political opponents in Luzerne County and Bryan Charles Kocis is the biggest weapon they have to bring down Judge Michael Conahan's Political Machine.

    Judge Michael Conahan let Bryan Kocis off on child molestation charges in 2002 and Kocis then went on to produce kiddie porn in his basement in a residential community - very damaging stuff to an elected official IMHO.

  3. The Litigation by Harlow Cuadra's lawyers in Virginia could also help bring down Judge Michael Conahan and the Luzerne County DA's Office.

    One would assume that Michael Conahan and the Luzerne County DA don't have the power to sway Judges in Virginia. Also, Virginia Beach Officials can protect themselves from lawsuits and miconduct charges if THEY claim that Virginia Beach was mislead by the Luzerne County DA and Michael Conahan into thinking that Harlow Cuadra was an armed and dangerous murder suspect.


    All in all, this seems to be a very sophisticated campaign at getting a Regime Change in Luzerne County - by bringing down the Judge Michasel Conahan AND the Luzerne District Attorney's Office.

  4. wrong again elm... there was no confusion between the original victim of Bryan's and Brent. He just used the same "defense-argument-excuse" with Brent as he did with the 15 year old boy.

    Kocis adapted by applying what he had learned from our very corrupt legal system and applied it to his future deceit of you all! And everyone bought it hook, line and sinker! We are all played everyday by our government at all levels! It's very easy to control our poorly educated, arrogant society with media hype and misinformation. We buy into daily!

    Meanwhile, we wonder how on earth our poor little children are continually exploited by predators like Kocis? He who has the money, controls the laws or how it applies to them... ask OJ!

    I assume you all still believe there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

    I'm sure Cad does, since he seems to know everything!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I keep wondering why this CAD person gets so upset at the suggestion that Bryan Kocis was dead long before January 24th.

    IF Kocis was dead long before January 24th, then it means that CAD could not have exchanged IM's with Kocis on January 24th and that those SAN DIEGO PEOPLE could not have talked to Kocis on the telephone on January 24th.

    OF COURSE, when the truth DOES come out that Kocis WAS dead long before January 24th, we will probably hear the following:

    1. Well, it sure seemed like it was Bryan I IM-ed

    2. Well, it sure sounded like Bryan we talked to on the phone.

    also, isn't it MORE LIKELY THAN NOT, that it was THOSE SAN DIEGO PEOPLE (or that guy who is not in the country) who gave Luzerne County Officials Harlow Cuadra's name AND that they gave Harlow's name up long before Luzerne County circulated Harlow's photo in the press?

    I think the motive in putting Harlow's Picture in the press was to get Harlow to panic. Harlow Cuadra was suppose to die in that search and tear gas raid on his house in hail of gun fire. Then, the blame for Kocis' murder would have been nicely placed on Harlow Cuadra's dead body.

  6. I'm seeing a lot of speculation and somewhat wild accusations here with the talk of "bringing down judges and the DA's office" etc.

    Don't think I'll go down that road as we'll once again lose sight of Bryan's murder. It may be all true, who knows, but I personally don't think this has anything do with Bryan's murder. The anon poster or posters here seem to swoop in to steer us in this direction every now and then but I don't know how credible I find their statements, especially the one directly above about Bryan being murdered before Jan 24. I don't believe that for one second.

    Very interesting blog post just the same, Elm. Keep up the great work.

  8. Here is a link to the news story that confirms what I have said.
    http://www.topix.net/content/kri/2720677481389520610204182609142180587383
    They mixed the two cases to confuse anyone who would look at why they changed the conviction. and also to alow the civil case to go forward. this would make it possible to get rid of the latest charge against him. Changing the original conviction would also prevent the first victim from testifying at a Megan's Law hearing.

    Kocis was arrested in July 2001 after a 15-year-old boy accused him of raping him twice inside Kocis' Midland Drive home in Dallas Township.
    The boy told authorities that Kocis videotaped their sexual encounters and knew he was under 18 because Kocis promised him a modeling job for his company, Cobra Video, when he turned 18, according to arrest records.
    Kocis began directing and producing gay pornographic films in 2001. Authorities removed truckloads of video recording equipment from a studio in his home on July 12, 2001, according to the search warrant inventory list.
    Flora and Tokach said prosecuting Kocis would have been difficult because the boy lied about his age. However, state law says defendants accused of sex offenses can't use 'mistake of age' in their defense.


    I find it quite interesting that Bryan was never in any of the movies he did for Cobra Video with the exception of the video with the first victim. this is what he was tried for the video tape possesion. They totally dicounted the first victims testimony in the case. the fact that he saiod the victim lied is beside the point . that is not a valid excuse and should not of held up in court.

    Here is the Lie again.

    Tokach said the boy was under contract with Kocis' company and provided two fake forms of identification that showed his age was older than 18.

    This is also an offence where tou have to register for Megan's law but the court system seemed to let him slide.

    Kocis was sentenced by Conahan on May 15, 2002, for the possession of child pornography, a felony, to one year of probation.

    Then they used the Brent Corrigan case as an excuse to change his first conviction.
    On July 13, 2006, Conahan signed a court order that changed Kocis' guilty plea to a corruption of minors, a misdemeanor, and hand wrote on the order, 'not subject to Megan's Law.'
    Flora said that order signed by Conahan was to fix a clerical error.


    Why does a dead man need a criminal lawyer?

    Late Wednesday afternoon, Flora issued a statement from Kocis' family that said they felt obligated to respond to media reports suggesting the legal system determined their son was a pedophile operating an illegal porn business and should have been registered as a sexual predator.

    No reason that I can think of. So isn't is possible that Atty. Al Flora is a family friend and among the accusations and supposition that may have been coming from those in the area as well as the media that he offered or was asked to step in and disclose the statement from the family? Seems at least somewhat plausible.

  10. Bryan was not killed before the 24th of January as the anonymous poser stated there are Multiple people who spoke to him and or saw him on or before that day. This is fact and can be proven he flew home on 4 days before he was killed and they have the flight records of that I am quite sure. Why would the killer transport a dead body and then leave a murder weapon at the scene? Bryan had company the day he was murdered as evidenced by the fact that he let his killer in to his home and the bottle of wine in the room shows that he knew his attacker.
    http://www.timesleader.com/mld/timesleader/news/16686155.htm?source=syn
    Kocis' burned body was found on a couch.
    Luzerne County Coroner Dr. John Consalvo said Kocis died from multiple stab wounds to the front torso and neck. He was dead before the fire ripped through his home, Consalvo said.
    A folding-type knife was found inside the home near the couch.
    A search warrant affidavit, which gave investigators authority to obtain Kocis' electronic communications, including e-mails and telephone records, suggested that Kocis may have had a 'personal association' with the suspect because there were no defensive stab wounds on his hands and arms.


    http://www.topix.net/content/kri/1130415713274643145301936670180100760379
    The affidavit states the fire was started on the couch where Kocis' body was found, and that firefighters encountered an open exterior door when they responded to the home.
    A law-enforcement source close to the investigation said that despite the fire, it appeared there were no signs of a struggle between Kocis and the suspect.
    An open bottle of wine found in the same room as the body might suggest Kocis had company, possibly ruling out the theory that someone forced his or her way inside the home, the source said.

    Why does this concern you? Elm posted that people saw him and spoke to him in his other post. The police and Cad said he was alive the day he was murdered. What is your deal? Do you have proof that he was dead before january 24th? How do you have this proof? I read on the Bitchless blog that he was killed in Las Vegas. But whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas so why did his dead body go home? It really does not add up.

    ReplyDelete
  15. it is my understanding that Bryan Kocis was last seen alive (by a reliable non-suspect - most likley his attorney) on January 18th and that this is the reason why the time period for the search warrants in Luzerne County is January 18 - Januwary 24th (the date Kocis was last seen alive and the date his body was found).

    ReplyDelete
  16. to Anonymous On April 7, 2007 3:59 PM ..
    The reason why the search warrants cover that specific period of time is because the police are trying to determine if there were threats prior to the murder. The time frame seams to coincide with the signing of the settlement papers. Their original assumption was that the murder case has something to do with the Civil Court Case between LSG Media and Cobra Video. Bryan was in San Diego and he flew home on the 20th of January, if memory serves me correctly. Cad made mention on one of the threads that he spoke to Bryan on the Saturday after he arrived home. This was 4 days before he was killed. Cad said that Bryan was very busy and that he seemed upbeat about the settlement and had been in regular contact with Brent. Bryan also told Cad that he and Brent were discussing future projects together. Cad also stated that he did not think that Bryan was expecting any new models. The 3 unsealed search warrants were for phone records and electronic correspondence. The other 3 were sealed and these are the ones that are in question.

  17. With IM messages and telephone conversations, people can always say that they THOUGHT they were talking to Bryan Kocis or that the IM message APPEARED to be coming from Bryan Kocis- such testimony would probably not be convincing to a jury after cross-examination by defense attorney at a trial.

    read back over the posts on your blog and at Jason's blog. Some people really seem to get upset at the mere suggestion that Kocis was killed before January 24th. Why is this?

  18. I really can not be sure; maybe it has something to do with where the parties involved were at the time of his death. I for one would believe that he was killed on the 24th I really see no compelling evidence to prove otherwise. Why do you think he was killed before the 24th of January?

    Who is determined to have Bryan alive on the 24th? That would include allot of people. The coroner can never be specific about a time of death unless there were witnesses to the death. It has always been an estimate. You have to give me a better reason than that. The only thing that the coroner can prove is that Bryan was killed before the fire. And an approximate time based when the last known person spoke to him or had confirmed contact with the victim. The coroner can base his time of death findings on the body temp of the victim and stomach contents based on the time of his last meal and the onset of rigor mortis. If you don't know when the victim had their last meal you have to rule that out and as for rigor mortis they could possibly use that but it is started as the body cools. Because of the fire it would no be that accurate. Hope that answers your question of why there was no time of death. Even in the best of situations it is always an estimate.

  21. In addition to Cad, Sean and apparently Lee, there is also Zane, supposedly the last Cobra Model filmed by Bryan, who said he phoned Bryan on the 23rd of January. According to Zane, Bryan said in that conversation that he was very busy as of late.

    It is not likely that all of those individuals were fooled into thinking they were speaking with Bryan. All of those individuals had met Bryan previously and would recognize his voice, way of speaking, etc. Not to mention the fact that Cad has said that in the IM's he had with Bryan on the day he died, Bryan mentioned things relating to Cad's personal plans that no one else could have known.

  22. a poster on the justusboys.com forum provided a link to an article which indicated that there is a way to precisely establish time of death (even when the body has been burned or frozen) as long as the victim's eyes were not damaged in the murder.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well from what I understand the victim was burned beyond recognition. I am not sure how if his eyes were not damaged. The coroner would have that information and I would assume he would know that procedure. So since he did not determine the time of death then maybe his eyes were damaged. This subject was discussed thoroughly on Jason’s blog. I do not now details of all the hows and why of what the coroner did or did not do. We just have the preliminary autopsy report. Based on that he just says that Bryan was dead before the fire. You can read into that what you want and I am sure many people have. There is still the fact that certain people had contact with Bryan the day he was murdered. It may be a conspiracy to make us believe he was killed on the 24th or it may just be true, that’s your call.

    Class action suit.
    Society is so fickle; we give you praise and well wishes and help you climb the ladder of success. But as soon as you do something that we don’t agree with we are all there to tear you down. The gay community is a microcosm of the society as a whole. We are also considered trendsetters and fashion leaders but we are also the most vindictive people on the planet. This case is a perfect example of just how nasty and evil some of us can be. Sean Lockhart and Bryan Kocis had disagreement that became public. It should not have but it did. Sean was wrong for lying about his age, we all can agree on that fact. Here is where everyone has a problem. Those of you who watched the videos and assumed that Sean (Brent) was of legal age are now faced with the fact that you have possibly watched child porn and were aroused. Or you could have purchased child pornography, which is a federal offense, and if you are in possession of could cause you to have to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law. It is understandable that you would be upset. There are certain facts that we should all be aware of. Yes Sean did supply Cobra Video with false credentials but Cobra Video was required by law to inspect said credentials for authenticity. This is stated in the 2257 requirements. Bryan Kocis being an agent for Cobra Video did not do his job. I really think there is no argument there. Cobra Video is just as culpable as Sean Lockhart is in this matter as if they forged the documents themselves. This is due to the fact that they did not use the proper diligence to confirm if said ID was correct. Cobra did release four (4) different titles starring the model Sean Lockhart (Brent Corrigan) and they accepted your money for said videos. The fact of the matter is anyone who purchased one of the pulled videos could file a class action suit against Cobra Video for product fraud. Cobra video sold product claiming that all the “actors” had valid 2257 documentation. It would appear that they lied to the consumer and that my friend is fraud. Which I might add is quite illegal.
    The true facts are if Cobra did use proper diligence when checking the credentials of their models as per 2257 requirements this should not have happened. But they did not do so. Cobra alleges that Sean provided ID that he was over 18 years of age. Bryan fell back on the same lame excuse he used in the prior case were he states that the boy lied about his age. That is not a valid excuse for a grown man in the business of pornography, a supposedly intelligent man with the means to check the credentials of his prospective models. I am not saying that Sean Lockhart does not bare any responsibility in this or his ex boyfriend Chris. They both conspired to defraud Cobra Video. The fact of the matter as stated before is it still falls back on Cobra Video to check the credentials of all the models. Sean Lockhart (Brent Corrigan) the model does not have to be 2257 compliant; Cobra Video the producer of the video does. So people you can not hold Sean Lockhart entirely responsible for this mess because Chris his ex boyfriend, Cobra Video and Bryan Kocis are just as culpable. So I say file a class action suit against Cobra Video and anyone else involved in this consumer fraud and get your money back for the child porn they sold you under false pretences. Thank you, This is a public service message.

    The job of Prosecutors is to win convictions, not to solve murders.

    It is not the job of proseuctors to solve the mystery of who actually killed Bryan Kocis. The Prosectuor's job is to win a conviction against whoever is accused of kiling Kocis.

    Telling a jury that Kocis was killed "between 1/18 - 1/24" is easier and simplier than trying to explain to a jury how it is possible to determine time of death from a victim's eyes.

    It must be assumed that Prosecutors in Luzerne County have in fact decided to adopt the "legal strategy" of saying that Kocis was killed "between 1/18 and 1/24". How else could Harlow Cuadra be credibly cited as a "person of interest" and how else could a search warrant have been obtained to search and tear gas Harlow's house IN VIRGINIA.

    Once you have it possible that Kocis was dead on 1/20, then the people who have Kocis alive on 1/24 automatically become suspects.

    If the coroner and the Prosecutors adopt the postion that Kocis was dead on 1/20, how do people explain talking to or IM-ing a dead man on 1/24?

    Again, a lot about winning a conviction against a person is about politics, playing off the prejudices of the jury and legal manuvering. Winning convictions can have very little to do with solving murders.

    You have accepted, to some degree, that a lot about what goes on in Luzerne County is about politics and influence.

    Why do you think that "Kocis' Time of Death" will not also be determine by politics and influence? Everything about Kocis' existence in Dallas Township seems to have been about influence and politics.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I do agree that a prosecutor’s job is to a conviction. I also agree that if the date and time of the victim’s death can not be determined it would open up case for new suspects. But the real question here is who had a motive and the means and ability to perpetrate the deed. Who do you think did this and why? There are also the facts that the police have his phone records. I would assume that from the phone records he was known to be alive on the 24th of January. The fact that the police said he e-mailed an associate that he was expecting a model that evening can be confirmation. If you are assuming that Harlow killed Bryan, why would Harlow e-mail his picture to one of Bryan’s associates if he killed Bryan before the 24th of January.

    I still have not been convinced that this has something to with corruption in Luzerne County. I need more proof that Luzerne County is crooked. Granted there does seem to be some evidence but nothing conclusive. Bryan’s Criminal record being changed makes me suspicious but what else is there. I have read a few news stories but they do not prove much. Is the Federal government really involved in this case? I read some where that the are. If so in what capacity are they involved? Is Judge Michael Conahan really as crooked as want us to believe? I can understand a few public officials being crooked but the whole county, that’s a bit much. What is the deal with Luzerne county? From what I have read the town where Bryan lived is just a small little backwoods town. There has to be more to all this than just crooked politicians. What are they trying to hide?

    Everybody in America should be afraid of these Luzerne County people. Right now, only Harlow's petition to unseal the search warrants in Virginia appears to be stopping them (temporarily) from heading over to San Francisco with their little idiot investigation.

    Someone in the FBI and the US Justice Department has to see that there was something odd about how Kocis not going to jail and that there was something odd about how Kocis was able to operate openly in Dallas Township. Maybe that's why a dead man hired a criminal lawyer.

  37. OK, this may seem a little far fetched to some, I apologize. Maybe a dead man did not hire a criminal attorney. (I hear the Trolls screaming already.) Maybe the criminal attorney was actually hired by a living person. (No way you say?) How can I overcome the absolute logic of a statement like "no way."
    I can't. I have failed. No thinking living person would hire a criminal attorney.

  38. well,
    AFTER KOCIS' death, the lawyer Al Flora was re-hired by Kocis' estate and he acted to explain the change in Kocis' 2002 guilty plea in 2006.

    The only parties to Kocis' 2002 criminal case were Kocis and the County of Luzerne/State of PA. So, either the lawyer Al Flora is representing Kocis (a dead man, via Kocis' estate) or Al Flora is representing Luzerne County officials (Judge Michael Conahan and the Luzerne DA who handeld Kocis' 2002 case).

    Kocis' family is publicly claiming that they re-hired Al Flora because of false claims that Kocis was a child molester and pedophile. However, you can't libel a dead man, so anybody can say whatever the fuck they want about Kocis. The fact that Kocis' estate or Kocis family have hired a lawyer does not mean that people can't still say that Kocis was a pedophile - everywhere in America (except maybe in Luzerne County PA) you can't libel someone who is dead.

  39. At the deposition, that Bryan attended, Sean's lawyer handed Bryan's lawyer a copy of the birth certifcate that was provided to Chad Belville by Sean at the outset. Suffice to say the document was less than evidential.

    the post is on Jason's blog posted at 12:21am by anonymous. It appears that it is a post by Cad. from another blog thread.
    Re: Woah! Talk about twist!? Bryan Kocis found MURDERED! [MERGED]

    But I'm a little confused. It says that Sean refused to give a copy of his birth certificate to Bryan but his attorneys were presented one at the deposition and they refused it.
    The question is why was it not accetable? Was the name different? Or did it say that he was born in 1986? I for one think that this is a load of crap that they did not accept it. This case is so twisted. How can they deny the document if it was presented in court. Ifit was a fake the attorney could have been disbarred or held in contempt of court. I guess that there is nothing Sean can do to prove when he was born. Is there is something more to the Id thing than they want to let us know? Maybe it doesn't match what Bryan has on file.Did Bryan swap the Id on file with the name of the boy he molested? Maybe thats how he got the charges changed?

  40. Kocis's estate re-hired Flora in case anyone sues the estate over this whole underage video of Brent Corrigan. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the wagons are circled in Luzerne County because all of the people in power are/were clients of Bryan Kocis. How embarassing for them would that be?

    Do you have inside knowlege of how Luzerne county works? If so please share it with us....we would all like to know what that little hamlet is like.

    BTW everyone, there will be no quick resolution to this case. Hasn't everyone been reading, they have had a record number of murders in Luzerne and surrounding areas. They are too backed up to investigate this quickly and becasue of what Kocis did, I am sure will just want to close this case and hang Harlow because it is easier than solving the crime.

  41. Everybody knows what Bryan asked his models to do, expecially at the end of each scene. Brent explained how he lied about his 100% accurate HIV TEST kit.

  44. there is a female judge in Luzerne County who is the subject of a judicial misconduct proceeding. This female judge has claimed that Michael Conahan was behind the judicial misconduct complaint because she publicly opposed the way Michael Conahan runs Luzerne County Court. The female judge is accused of stupid shit like being rude to lawyers, being rude to her staff, and allegedly harassing another woman.

    Michael Conahan has been accused of diverting juvenile detaineers to a facily owned by an associate of his and away from the state approved facility. Conahan recently slap a woman who complained about a firehouse closing with a $10,000 bill to pay for the county' attorney's fees in opposing the woman's complaint. There is some planned Cargo Facility that Conahan is accused of having some interest in and using his influence as Judge to aide.

    There is never ending shit in Luzerne County from any number of people in Luzerne County being pissed off at Michael Conahan for some controversial ruling from Michael Conahan.

    Everybody in Luzerne County who hates Michael Conahan is gearing up to use Bryan Kocis in an attempt to either defeat Conahan's re-election bid or in a judicial misconduct complaint against Conahan.

    In fact, the compaign to use Bryan Kocis to get Conahan off the bench has already begun with people charging that Kocis guilty plea change was "very unusual". Al Flora was re-hired to help the Luzerne County DA explain why Kocis guilty plea was completely changed in 2006.

    Compare the claim that that female judge was RUDE to people to Michael Conahan letting Bryan Kocis operate freely in a residential community without Kocis being to register as a Sex Offender.

  46. (1) There is absolutely no doubt that the person that I was in AIM contact with at 4.55pm on 25 January was Bryan Kocis. This exchange was the last of many subsequent to his departure from the west coast.

    (2)I do not know whether the Kocis family have engaged Al Flora. It would not surprise me if they did since I doubt Bryan and his parents spoke very much about the details of the case. The person most competent to present Bryan's side of the story is Al Flora. Given all the negative publicity and comments on their son it would be remiss for them NOT to have a qualified spokesman.

    Of course it may be that Flora has been engaged as the probate lawyer by the Kocis' and his comment on the sex case are incidental.

    (3)Although exceptional, it does happen that convictions are re-opened by a lower court without recourse to an appeal and a lesser charge substituted. Generally it only happens where a defendant has pleaded guilty (as Bryan did) and not when they have been found guilty e.g. by a jury.

    They usually result from an over-enthusiastic prosecutor making a technical/legal mistake. In the absence of a trial the matter gets overlooked until a fresh pair of eyes gets involved.

    (4) It is my theory - without any facts to back it up - is that the underage issue and federal suit stirred up some enquiries closer to home. Questions were raised about why Bryan was not subject to Megan's law and therefore the 2001 file was examined again.

    But I am only guessing on the last point.

    ReplyDelete
  47. It appears that Bryan Kocis first attracted a lot of Attention in Luzerne County when he filed his federal lawsuit against Brent Corrigan and either ( a ) Corrigan's lawyers asked the State why Kocis wasn't a registered sex offender; or ( b ) Conahan's political opponents recognized that they could use Kocis against Conahan. This is when Kocis' 2002 guilty plea was changed.

    So, there was clearly an effort to use Kocis against Conahan BEFORE Kocis was killed. AND, the Kocis/Conahan connection just got even bigger in the press AFTER Kocis was killed.

  49. it can be argued that political opponents of Judge Michael Conahan had enough KOCIS DIRT to use against Conahan WITHOUT Kocis being dead. The mere fact that Conahan changed Kocis' guilty plea FOUR YEARs LATER, it seems, would have been enough for a judical misconduct complaint against Conahan and to use against a re-election bid by Conahan (if he has to go through re-election).

    In addition, there was the ADDITIONAL KOCIS DIRT that after 2002, Kocis went on to molest another kid and produce kiddie porn in his Basement.

    However, with Kocis dead, Kocis obviously cannot make any deal to testify against any Luzerne County Officials.

    There were newspaper reports back in 2006 about Judge Michael Conahan changing Kocis guilty plea (as I recall) and there were additional reports on the plea change in February 2007.

    I would also point out that Kocis issued a Press Release claiming to have sued Brent Corrigan in Luzerne County court and that Corrigan had to appear for a deposition (this was right before the Federal Lawsuit). THIS STUNT by Kocis also received NATIONWIDE attention.

    btw, someone posting here has suggested that Brent Corrigan's lawyers called State Officials and inquired as to why Kocis was not a Registered Sex Offender when they were sued in Federal Court by Kocis.

  51. Having followed the local papers since Bryan was murdered I have been astonished by the volume of violent crimes and sex offences in Bryan's neighbourhood.

    I doubt Bryan's single conviction involving a single victim made much of an impact against such a crime ridden environment.

    The judge in question has probably made more enemies by his stays of executions.

    As I have said before, Bryan was no Mr Big. He was irrelevant to the local community.

    I have been unable to find any 2006 reports of the change in conviction and doubt such a thing would be reported anyway.

    The accusation by anon 1.27 was that:-

    "Bryan Kocis first attracted a lot of Attention in Luzerne County when he filed his federal lawsuit against Brent Corrigan"

    - and not that the change was reported in Feb 2007, after his murder.

    So my question remains, what evidence is there that Bryan became a local cause celeb BEFORE his murder?

    So your theory is Bryan was Murder to sop him from testifying against Conahan? Why would Bryan do this when Judge Conahan reduced his charges making him not subject to Megan’s Law requirements? And thus taking away the ability from his first victim to testifying against him in a Megan’s law hearing.

    Cad you posted on the just us boys forum that Bryan’s attorney were given a copy of Sean’s Birth Certificate yet the rejected it. Do you know the reason why they did this? Why if the birth Certificate was presented in a court of law was it rejected?

    You also state that Bryan did not have a jury trail for his first case of child abuse. Did Bryan plead guilty and therefore there was no trail? Is this why the prosecutor had to reduce the charges? Why if he plead guilty in the first place would they review the case and change his charges when there was a civil case pending that was based on the same issue; his production of underage porn?

    Cad this is not true there were newspaper stories that reported on his charges being reduced. Here is a link
    http://www.topix.net/content/kri/2720677481389520610204182609142180587383

    Bryan’s offender status was questioned in February after his murder. This is really getting to be a bit much. I can understand that you can not tell all you know if you were one of Bryan’s attorneys but you need to know that a innocent mans life hangs in the balance if the truth does not come out. And this will also block the efforts of the police in finding the true killer of Bryan Kocis.

    There are so many theories being bandied about that it is just getting plain confusing.

    1) The fact that Sean’s (Brent Corrigan’s) Birth Certificate was presented in a Court of Law and was not accepted.

    2)The fact that Bryan’s charges were reduced when he plead guilty.

    3)The fact that the charges were changed after he filled a civil suit against another model (Brent Corrigan/Sean Lockhart) who performed in under age porn for his studio.

    4)The fact that his sex offender status was brought up after his murder.

    This is all just a bit much you have to admit that. The fact is that the anonymous poster has been very consistent about their statements albeit a little vague but consistent none the less would make one assume that there is some credibility to those statements. There have been news stories about corruption in Luzerne County and I have read a few of them. go to topix.net and check it's all there.

    Anon. has been consistent with his rant about corruption but without producing any evidence, only allegations.

    In the context of Lucerne County crime, Bryan was a non-starter - just read the on-line papers.

    I questioned whether the July 2006 change in conviction was in the papers. I did not know if it was or not but doubted, from my own experience of doing such things myself, whether it would have been reported. Once my browser calms down I will read the articles that I assume people have posted.

    Yes, Bryan pleaded guilty in 2001 and therefore there was no jury involved.

    Bryan pleaded guilty to the charges that were thought correct. Clearly upon re-examination the incorrect charges were made. This would more than likely have been identified had the matter proceeded to trial.

    Just because something, like a change of conviction is "extremely unsual" does not mean it is wrong, suspect or corrupt. I participate in a change in conviction very rarely compared to original convictions but that does not make the changes themself wrong.

    During the September deposition, Sean's lawyer was asked to provide a certified birth certificate. All that he was able to produce was a copy that was already on file, apparantly as was presented to Chad Belville.

    Sean's new attorney therefore had not been presented with original ID by Sean - or lied at deposition.

    The point I have been attempting to make that so far as we are aware all the suspicions about the 2001 conviction, change in conviction and lack of Megan's law registration only came out after Bryan was murdered.

    Surely Bryan's murder would always raise more questions and draw more attention about these events that him continuing to live quietly.

    There was a reason why Bryan was killed when he was and to mind the timing had nothing to do with local judicial matters.

  59. don't over look this very important fact

    The Luzerne County DA is on record in the Times Leader and Citzen Voice as saying that Kocis charges were reduced in 2002 because "Kocis had a valid mistake of age defense".

    Now, today, we learn that the State of Pennsylvania does not even allow "mistake of age defense" (similar to California).

    So, Bryan Kocis had NO valid defense to the 2002 charges but he got no jail time and did not become a registered sex offender.

  60. Dallas Township man pleads guilty to sexual abuse of children
    By Tim Gulla, Citizens' Voice Staff Writer
    04/05/2002


    A Dallas Township man who operated an adult video business pleaded guilty Thursday in Luzerne County Court to a sexual abuse of children charge for possessing an unlawful videotape of a 15-year-old boy.


    Bryan Kocis, 39, of Midland Drive had been charged with more serious offenses, including the alleged sexual assault of the 15-year-old boy on the tape, which he recorded in his own home.
    However, prosecutors conceded that Kocis had a valid "mistake of age" defense to almost every charge against him.

    All other charges against Kocis were dropped Thursday when he pleaded guilty to the single charge of sexual abuse of children in connection to the tape police found in his home.
    He faces a sentencing range of probation to nine months' imprisonment for the offense.
    President Judge Michael Conahan will impose sentencing on May 15.
    Attorney Al Flora explained Thursday that Kocis did not know of the teen's true age until after the police investigation began. He alleged the teen had lied about his age to Kocis.

    He further argued that Kocis had a registered and legitimate business and that he properly obtained written contracts from all of the "models" he employed.
    However, Kocis had not obtained a written contract and proof of identification for the teen before the police investigation began.

    "My client believed he could disseminate (the tapes) after he got the contract and identification.
    He didn't realize under state law the mere video taping could constitute a crime," Flora said.

    Flora further noted that Kocis was not charged with operating an illegal business. In fact, prosecutors had to return almost every item they seized from Kocis' home when they executed a search warrant last July 12.

    In addition to various computer, audio/visual and camera equipment, police had seized hundreds of allegedly pornographic videotapes from Kocis' home. All of the items, except the tape of the 15-year-old boy, were returned to Kocis last November.
    "We couldn't show it was anything criminal," prosecuting Assistant District Attorney Jeff Tokach said of the material that was returned to Kocis.

    At the time of his arrest, Kocis reportedly operated a business call Cobra Videos, which Flora said was a registered business.
    It had been alleged that Kocis met the 15-year-old boy who lived in the Allentown area through an Internet chat room. It further was alleged that Kocis transported the boy to his Midland Drive, Dallas Township, home last May or June and had sexual contact with the teen.
    This contact was videotaped and police seized the tape when they executed the search warrant.

    Assistant DA Tokach conceded, "Mistake of age was a defense."
    Tokach further conceded that the teen had misrepresented his age to Kocis.
    The prosecutor said of the resolution of the case, "It's a resolution the victim wants. The victim is more than satisfied, in speaking to his father."

    Prosecutors and court records indicate that the teen consented to the sexual contact. Kocis initially had been charged with sexual assault due to the teen's age and the difference between his and the teen's age.
    "They (the victim and his family) didn't want to be involved any more than they had to," Tokach said.

    He further indicated that the teen moved away from the Allentown area. "They just don't want to come back and have this open up again."


    Bryans attorney is playing the Special Kind of Stupid Defense for his Client. Bryan was in the porn business and he must of read read the usc2256 and usc2257 regulations because he had them in place for his other models. I guess it was just a stupid slip up this time because the boy was so hot and he was just caught this time.

    Thanks for reprinting that article although not sure if your addendum added anything positive.

    In any case we have to be wary when relying upon press reports rather than legal papers. Many reporters do not differentiate between defence and mitigation which is a key element in sexual crimes.

    Last week, here is the UK a 20 y/o man received only a conditional discharge, which is less than a $1 fine in legal terms - for (statutory) raping a 10 y/o girl.

    He pleaded guilty but in mitigation said that he did not know her true age. The prosecution accepted that the girl lied about her age, actively targeted the man because she wanted to have sex and encouraged intercourse at the earliest opportunity.

    Just goes to shows that these things happen everywhere. Human attraction and sexuality is a complex matter that cannot always be resolved within codified law.

    During the September deposition, Sean's lawyer was asked to provide a certified birth certificate. All that he was able to produce was a copy that was already on file, apparantly as was presented to Chad Belville.

    Sean's new attorney therefore had not been presented with original ID by Sean - or lied at deposition.


    As far as I know you never get the original copy of a birth certificate it is always a copy. I have gone to the hospital that I was born in and got a copy and it was from a microfiche. Not all pretty like the one my mother has that looks all official. So this is where I just don’t get why it was not accepted. What was wrong with it? Was it the fact that his name was different? We all know that Sean was apparently adopted by his stepfather so could that be the issue.

    As for the 2001 victim of abuse Bryan’s attorney states in the newspaper article as follows: He alleged the teen had lied about his age to Kocis.

    He further argued that Kocis had a registered and legitimate business and that he properly obtained written contracts from all of the "models" he employed.
    However, Kocis had not obtained a written contract and proof of identification for the teen before the police investigation began.

    "My client believed he could disseminate (the tapes) after he got the contract and identification. He didn't realize under state law the mere video taping could constitute a crime," Flora said.


    So that means that when the District Attorney said the boy was under contract he lied to the press and therefore to the people of Luzerne County.
    Here is his statement: “Tokach said the boy was under a contract with Kocis to model for Cobra Video and provided two fake forms of identification that showed the boy was 18 years old.”

    This is the reason we are all wondering about this whole case. If it does in fact revolve around the signing of the settlement then it could be because the case did not go all the way through the court system and Bryan did not prevail as the winner. If he won the case as you say he would have then the judge would not be brought up on charges of misconduct. But because they settled nothing was proven and it would leave open the suspicions of the allegations of misconduct by Judge Conahan.

    In any case Judges retain considerable discretion and it is most unlikely that the change in conviction in the absence of a jury verdict and - AFTER - the original sentence had been fully served could be construed as judicial misconduct.

    I cannot over-stress how much I think the whole judicial connection is a diversion from the actual crime.

  65. cad said "Last week, here is the UK a 20 y/o man received only a conditional discharge, which is less than a $1 fine in legal terms - for (statutory) raping a 10 y/o girl.

    He pleaded guilty but in mitigation said that he did not know her true age. The prosecution accepted that the girl lied about her age, actively targeted the man because she wanted to have sex and encouraged intercourse at the earliest opportunity.

    Just goes to shows that these things happen everywhere. Human attraction and sexuality is a complex matter that cannot always be resolved within codified law." Cad in California that 20 year old would be on his way to a LONG prison sentence Because in California "claiming ignorance of age" is simply NOT ALLOWED as a defense. The jury would be instructed did the 20 yo have sex with a minor under 14. Yes or No, explanations are not allowed. This is why a lot of California posters are VERY CRITICAL of Bryan in this state Bryan would have been in grave legal danger! It's obvious Pennsylvania is very "tolerant" of underage sex with minors (at least in 2001). Funny friends of mine in Philly were not under this impression so again this very strongly suggests "political corruption in Luzerne county" You simply do not "get off" when you are a gay pornographer who likes them "underage" unless your willing to Bankrupt yourself to pay off the Judge,etc. Wait Bryan did declare Bankruptcy! Since his case never went to trial it sure as hell was not from Legal bills! 239K sounds like a nice wad of cash for the boy & and or a judge.Hmm wonder if our judge likes young boys?

  66. Howard, I very specifically stated that it is important to differentiate between mitigation and defence.

    If you have sex with an underage person you cannot,at law, have a defence. It is straightforward statutory rape.

    Defence relates to conviction, not sentence.

    However, Courts take account of mitigation when sentencing. So there will be a big difference in sentence between someone that follows their victim down a dark alley and when the vicitim contacts the defendant wanting to have sex.

    Nothing the Judge has done could possibly merit the kind of cover-up that involves Bryan being murdered.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Cad you keep referring to the actual crime. Is there more to this case than we are privy too? Is there more to this case than the press has released? I just do not get how this all revolves around the age of Sean Lockhart if his birth certificate was produced in court and Bryan’s attorneys rejected it. When you stated it was already on file with the courts. How does all this play out that Bryan was killed because of the settlement if in fact the settlement is still valid after his death? There is just so much double speaking going on and no one has come up with a definitive answer to any of the questions posed. I do realize that Bryan’s murder was unspeakably violent. Who ever committed the murder was in a heightened state of rage and anger. This murder was personal and it has to be someone who Bryan was directly involved with. I do not see this as a murder for hire due to the viciousness of it. This was just too personal for that. But I really can not see Harlow as the person who committed this crime either. The motive for Harlow to me is really just not there. Someone who had a very personal relationship with Bryan perpetrated this murder. This person was pushed to the limit by a specific event and they snapped and slit his throat to the bone and stabbed him 28 times and they torched the place after their crime. It would appear that they really wanted all evidence of Bryan’s existence destroyed. Whether this event was the settlement or something unrelated the timing is a best very interesting. Also the picture of Harlow being sent to an associate is interesting as well. Someone with direct knowledge of the previous meetings in Las Vegas and San Diego and the facts of the settlement would be the most likely suspect. The fact that all the obvious suspects were no where near Dallas Township would leave few other people whom would have access to Bryan and would be privy to such information. Does this sound plausible to you?

  68. Look There is a Defense Attorney in Luzerne County with experience dealing with the judges on Luzerne County court who is on record in the press as saying that completely changing Kocis's guilty plea in 2006 was "unheard of".

    This same attorney is quoted as saying that he would never have had the balls to even approach the Luzerne County DA and ask the DA for the kind of deal that Kocis got in 2002.

    It seems to be an open joke in Luzerne County that the Luzerne County Courts are extremely "political".

    ReplyDelete
  69. You have to wonder who the hell would even ENTER Luzerne County given all of the shit that goes on in that County. Judge Michael Conahan, as I understand it, is in charge of Juvenile Court and decides where Juveniles are to be deatained.

    Someone suggested that Kocis was killed by a Pro and that the 28 stab wounds were just a cover-up to make it look like a crime of passion.

    I would think that anybody living in Pennsylvania would make a deliberate effort to avoid Luzerne County as tall cost.

  70. To my knowledge Sean's birth certificate has never been produced to a Court.

    The document produced at the deposition (which is not a court) was a file photocopy of the document presented to Chad Beville. "Copy" birth certificates are certified extracts from local birth registers. Their actual physical form varies.

    We are just going to have to disagree over the importance of the change in Bryan's conviction. Yes, I do have inside information but people really should look elsewhere.

    Bryan pleaded guilty. He served his sentence without a single breach. Four years later the conviction was changed.

    Just read the account of Sean's own attorney and open minds will realise just how irrelevant this diversion is.

    It is also telling that that blog post by Sean a day before Bryan's murder that begged that "whatever happens" has been removed from the archive.

    We don't even need to consider the validity of such a claim.

    The FACT is there was no "change to Kocis guilty plea." The plea remained guilty but the conviction was changed by the court. The sentence having already been served.

    This all happened (and apparantly widely reported) in July 2006 so why would this cause his murder 7 months later ?

    I do not remember a post being deleted from Brent’s Blog the day before Bryan’s murder. All I recall is the Donkey punch Flyer that is still up on his Blog. We did a time line on Jason’s Blog and that post was never mentioned. So you have me a little baffled with that one. I do believe that you are stating that Sean had something to do with Bryan’s murder but you said it yourself and I quote: Anyway, people will believe what they choose to believe. I only wish to clarify that so far as the age issue is concerned - nothing has been proved.

    On that other question, No; Bryan never expressed any fear for his life to me. He was not attracted to rough street types. If you read the affidavit that is floating around the web you can read how vicious the attack was. It does not sound like the type of violence a Cobra Boy would be capable of - and I include Sean.

    PS I have already been in communication with the police.


    This was taken directly from your Justusboys post. As I recall Sean was in San Diego when this murder occurred as was Grant and Lee. There attorney said so. Harlow was in Virginia at the time so none of them can be placed at the crime scene. So are you saying that they hired someone to do this? Which I might add is highly unlikely as to the nature of the killing. Which you have said was quite personal. If it was a professional hit there would be no personal contact with the victim such as this case has shown. They would have inflicted the first wound to the throat and left taking the weapon with them and disposing of it elsewhere. Or they would have used a gun negating any real personal contact at all. The hit-man theory just makes no sense to me. The fire is the real deal breaker, I believe it was set to destroy the 2257 records which were kept on the premises.

  74. IF Kocis' 2002 guilty plea was changed in 2006 because the State of Pennsylvania asked Judge Michael Conahan and the Luzerne County DA why Kocis was not registered as a Sex Offender,

    THIS could lead some people to question how appropriate it is for the Luzerne County DA to be the party who is conducting the investigation into who killed Kocis.

  75. I would tend to go with the professional hit man theory simply because no one in their right mind would otherwise set foot in Luzerne County.

    Don't you recall the very strange blog post by Sean. It was along the lines of "whatever happens or is alleged". Someone no doubt will have it stored somewhere. It has been removed from Sean's archive.

    With all objectivity I don't see any problem with Bryan's conviction being reduced to a lesser charge after he had served the original sentence. Or at least I cannot see it being the motive for murder.

    I stand by my report that Bryan never expressed a view that he felt a fear for his life. He did express views about the propensity for violence by certain parties that have already been made public.

    You are making an assumption that the USC2257 records were maintained in Bryan's house. I have previously confirmed my understanding that video master discs were not stored there.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I forgot to address the comment about professional killers. They may be able to replicate the style of a crime of passion but I doubt they would increase their risk of capture by killing Bryan in the early evening while neighbours were still around.

  79. investigations by state agencies can take a lot longer than 7 months. It is not all that strange that 7 months after the plea change (and state inquiry) Kocis turned up dead. The investigation into the plea change and Kocis' death can very much related. In any event there is enough question of whether they ARE related for some party other than Luzerne County to be investigating Kocis' murder.

    You would think that The Local Gay Pornographer's House would be watched 24/7 by nosy neighbors. However, no one appears to have seen the Silver SUV drive UP TO Kocis' House. Very Very Strange

  80. Elm, the custodian of records is a point of contact not a depositary.

    USC2257 requires the address of where the records may be accessed not where they are physically stored.

    Like most statutory records they tend to be stored with a company's attorney. Cobra was no different in that regard.

    Jack,
    If you see my DVD’s selling in stores, they are doing so illegally. But, because the industry recognized the DVD’s as child pornography, and not the government (becauase the government turned a deaf ear to the situation), there’s little that can be done about the little brick and mortar porn shops.
    The DVD’s are being sold outside of the US by Cobra Video anyway. The same laws don’t apply in other countries. So they are still making money off of child pornography.
    You know, this really gets me. Some people still think I lied about being too young for the work. Look people! If I was lying, don’t you think Cobra Video would have taken the first chance they could to get these DVD’s back on the market after receiving the certified copy as has been widely reported?

    Elm, that's a valid concern about the proof of age documents being kept at Bryan's house and one I had been thinking about earlier. I had just assumed a copy was also kept at an attorney's office, in addition to Bryan's home.

    Bryan's sister running Cobra? Now that surprises me and I didn't think I could be surprised about anything else in this case.

    Well, if that's the case, the next question is, will she and Aaron choose to have the terms of the settlement with LSG enforced?

  90. Cad, I do recall that blog post from Sean on his site. The post was dated the 18th of January, 2007. It was a vague post that could be taken any different number of ways. I quoted parts of it when I put together the first timeline on Jason's site back in early February. I referenced directly from Sean's blog so it has been deleted since early February.

    Below is a repost of my comment from the timeline, including quotes from Sean's blog, as it appeared when I first posted it.

    -----------------------------------
    January 18, 2007 - Sean posts a comment on his blog, in reply to his own post, "In Memory of Dr. Martin Luther King..." which states, "The last few days have been tumultuous for me; in Vegas and now here at home in San Diego."
    He continues:
    "The trip to Vegas was fun, yet it was overshadowed by a daunting, yet much-important ground breaking event for this company and another one I am closely related to. I’m having trouble allowing my new, positive thoughts to wash away anything that might have precluded them... I want you all to know that I have things to write about Vegas. But, my emotions have dominated my thoughts the past few days and I am having trouble writing about going to clubs and meeting porn stars.

    Whatever happens, I want all of you to know that our possible upcoming arrangements are based on what is best for me, my company, and my future."

    ^^We can all infer what Sean meant with these statements and now that we have more info as to the days proir to this post, we can come to some conclusions on our own but only Sean knows for sure what he meant with these words.

  92. Chris @ 8:30pm -

    The first blog comment of Sean's I saw yesterday and referenced in a post of mine on Jason's site, which I'll repost here.

    Bear in mind, I posted this open question comment to Sean on Jason's site before Sean shared with us who is currently running Cobra Video.

    Originally posted on Jason's site by MJ on April 9, 2007,

    Sean says,

    "Jack,

But, because the industry recognized the DVD’s as child pornography, and not the government (becauase the government turned a deaf ear to the situation), there’s little that can be done about the little brick and mortar porn shops.

    Well Sean, since you bring this up and I know you read Jason's blog and even post here if the subject suits you, I have a few questions, if you'd be so kind. First of all, this is something I've wondered all along. Tell me, if you called up your local San Diego FBI field office today, told them a production company in Pa. filmed child pornography of yourself on more than one occasion and subsequently distributed it to the public over a long duration, that you had the proof with your certified copy of your birth certificate proving that you were underage and provided them with filming dates, etc., then they would "turn a deaf ear?" Do you really expect us to buy that, Sean? Even if you tried once before to involve the feds in this, then what's stopping you from trying to contact them again? I mean, with this revelation from Jack on your blog that the videos are still on the market in some locales and the fact that there may be individuals out there in the US, unknowingly purchasing child pornography. As the "performer" in question who participated in the filming of said child pornography, do you not have a moral obligation, a civic duty, to act on this news from Jack and notify the Feds? If, for no other reason, than to make sure no other fan or potential fan of yours is subjected to viewing child pornography, a federal crime? With all the knowledge and proof you claim to have, how can you not act? Goodness knows, you're persistent and not one to give up without a fight. How can you be ignored? Am I right?

    As to your last statement that why wouldn't Cobra, upon receipt of a certified copy of your birth certificate, if proven that you were of age during filming, not release your prior DVD's? Simple answer to that question, Sean. The final settlement papers were signed on January 20th, a Saturday. As such, a certified copy of your birth certificate could not have been secured on that day or the following day, a Sunday. Thus, the process could not have begun until Monday, the 22nd. Bryan was murdered on the evening of the 24th, a mere two days later. I can't imagine how a certified copy of your birth certificate could have been secured and forwarded to all the appropriate individuals, presumably the lawyers and Bryan, in the course of those two days. And it would be next to impossible for the videos to be put back on the market between the 20th of January and the date of Bryan's murder. There simply wasn't enough time between the signing of the settlement papers and Bryan's murder for all of this to take place. At this point, it is unknown who, if anyone, is running Cobra Video and what their motivations and plans for the company may or may not be. So, to answer your question, Sean, I see a large number of reasons why the videos would not be back on the market, if you were lying about being underage.

  100. Elm. re. Aaron

    I seem to recall the question about Aaron was whether or not he and Bryan were a couple. I answered then and repeat now, no they were not.

    Bryan did socialise with Aaron quite a bit and Aaron seemed to be in contact with him on a fairly regular basis. Bryan had various partners in conjunction with Aaron remaining in the picture so I think it is fair to assume they were just friends. Bryan never referred to Aaron as his boyfriend or partner.

    I think there were practical reasons for Aaron keeping in contact such as him living relatively closer to Bryan than most of the other models. He was also a good source for hard to get theatre tickets.

    To avoid the lower price of a forced sale Cobra will have to be sorted out and Aaron seems an ideal choice since he has known Bryan and Cobra for over 4 years. I doubt Bryan's sister will be too involved in the operating details.

    A model that Bryan also spoke about quite a bit was Cody who featured in recent films. He struck me as Bryan's new "Prince" but I have never read anything else about him.

  101. It is probably safe to say that Kocis' lawyer is running Cobra Video - not Kocis' sister.

    I suspect that Al Flora is running Cobra Video because, the only place in the world that that settlement agreement could be ENFORCEABLE would be in Luzerne County. And, Luzerne County is clearly Al Flora's territory.

    Even if the settelment agreement specifies San Diego as the forum for litigation, Cobra Video can still camp out in Luzerne County doing whatever it wants confident in the fact that Corrigan et al would never enter Luzerne County, and that Corrigan et al could not win any lawsuit in Luzerne County if they did.

    Maybe this is why "a certain person" is so intent on hanging Brent Corrigan for Kocis' murder, THIS GUY is a lawyer and was a friend of Kocis and TOGETHER they could't outsmart a 17 year old boy.

  107. Cad in reference to the storage place of the 2257 files they would have to be stored at the address listed.
    That is part of the 2257 ordinance. As for the master tapes and discs I don’t know about those but I would also assume that they would be stored at Bryan’s home as well. That could very well be why the fire was set, to totally destroy Cobra Video.

    As far as Sean’s ID being in question it would appear that Cobra Video would be in possession of it. Al Flora probably has it in his hot little hand and is cursing the day that he ever got involved in this charade.

    I do think Cobra Video will go up for sale and it will be kept quiet about who buys it. Possibly Al Flora and Judge Michael Conahan will be the new owners.

    It really is an interesting turn of events that Aaron, “Bryan’s little henchmen” is helping to run the show with Al and Bryan sister.

    You question the timing of the events leading up to Bryan’s death. Well so do I and I really think it has to do with the fact that he settled as opposed to taking LSG to court and “winning “ the case.

    There are a lot of mitigating circumstances that would lead me to believe this. The fact that conviction was revisited and subsequently changed to a lessor charge. The Untruths about the victim of the first case being under contract to Cobra Video. The facts of Brent/Sean’s birth certificate being presented to Bryan’s attorney and refused. The brutality of Bryans murder and the subsequent fire.

    Bryan was murdered to hide a deep and dirty secret and I am certain of this.

    This whole case is based on "Lies, Trickery, Fabrication and Deceit". It is really a sad commentary that a man’s life was taken because of all this and many others have been devastated.
    When the truth does come out and it will we will all be shocked by what has transpired to bring us to this point.

  109. Elm, we are just going to have to disgree again.

    Why do people just assume atty. Flora is now involved with Cobra?

    He was not involved in the federal dispute or settlement so why would he be involved with Cobra now ??? He does not have the inside knowledge of the company that other members of the legal team has/had.

    Just because people are creating their own fantasy worlds with wild self-delusional conections does not mean they are correct.

    As for the USC2257 records I stand by my earlier statement and accordingly even if the house was raised to the ground, the orginal documents would not have been lost.

    Finally, who are quoting when you describe Aaron as “Bryan’s little henchmen” ?

    ReplyDelete
  110. It was a statment made on the juicygoo forum that I read. I thought it was kind of funny so I used it. It was in regards to a post that Brent made on a thread. the poster said I hope Bryan does not read this or his little henchmen Aaron.

  112. cad said,,,"Finally, who are quoting when you describe Aaron as “Bryan’s little henchmen” Cad Aaron,Cody & other Cobra bois "close" to Bryan were known to frequent forums and post on Bryans behalf using an Alias. I am convinced BB is Aaron. According to Brent they all used to post frequently at Brents Blog (rarely posted)I believe Aaron is up to his ears in this and I will never believe he did not have a relationship with Bryan. You said yourself Cobra was more of a Hobby for Bryan,,,well what is the point of a Hobby except enjoyment of All Aspects of being a Gay Pornographer including Fucking and Sharing the Merchandise! Please we are talking the real world here I have been on porn sets,How do you think these bois get hired you of course Know what the Casting Couch means its not a joke man!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Anon 2.15 I have used that old cliche "he was not a saint" on many ocassions and you will find it in my past posts here and elsewhere.

    There is a difference between a relationship and "Fucking and Sharing the Merchandise!". I would be surprised if Bryan and Aaron had not fucked but Bryan never referred to the two of them as an item.

    Since Bryan confided to me about his relationship aspirations it would appear inconsistent if he was all the time in a settled relationship with Aaron.

    The question about the henchman quote was simply a point of clarification. Nowadays, "Henchman" has a pejorative meaning so I wondered why someone was being so negative about Aaron.

    Elm. re. Aaron

    I seem to recall the question about Aaron was whether or not he and Bryan were a couple. I answered then and repeat now, no they were not.

    Bryan did socialize with Aaron quite a bit and Aaron seemed to be in contact with him on a fairly regular basis. Bryan had various partners in conjunction with Aaron remaining in the picture so I think it is fair to assume they were just friends. Bryan never referred to Aaron as his boyfriend or partner.

    relatively closer to Bryan than most of the other models. He was also a good source for hard to get theatre tickets.

    To avoid the lower price of a forced sale Cobra will have to be sorted out and Aaron seems an ideal choice since he has known Bryan and Cobra for over 4 years.

    Howard here,,,,,Cad I got email from Bryan too I remember pre Brent in 2003 early 2004 Aaron being mentioned repeatedly by Bryan as a very special "fringe benefit" his emails seemed to suggest a much closer relationship than you acknowledge! And then April 2004 Brent comes into the picture we all know that by summer 04 Bryan and Brent were tight how do you think Aaron felt about this?

    Very telling that Brent never mentions Aaron being around that summer or later around Hawaii time. Bryan also took Brent to dinner in NYC that must have really frosted Aaron. I still say Aaron would have been the one person in Vegas Jan 11-14th who would have been furious to see Brent and Bryan making nice. Aaron also fits the suspect list Bryan, would of course let him in if he just showed up on the 24th,,and I think he just did not tell you about his personal sex life. I have become more convinced a "jilted Cobra boy" was involved in this murder and what better candidate than Aaron or Cody for that matter(someone referred to Cody as a shrill,vindictive bitch)

    A Cobra boy that close to Bryan had to have known that suspicion in Bryans death would fall on Grant. A Perfect Murder is defined as one where YOU(Cobra boy) are beyond suspicion and are assured that a “convenient suspect is at hand" (Grant)

    bb/Aaron care to comment? Serious everyone I think the PA Police should have checked the Alibis of Aaron the eve of the 24th as Cad says he lives close(drive time) I know some have argued a skinny little Cobra boi is an unlikely suspect but I remind you 90lb filipino girls were known to slit the throats of abusive USN's& Marines in the 70's around Subic.

    That initial coroners report is very telling the murderer had to come up behind Bryan to cut his throat(no defensive wounds)and the 28 stab wounds were described as non-lethal ,,ceremonial almost designed to make this look like a man of great hate killed Bryan. Cue Grant the Cobrakiller as BB (Cobra boi?)never FAILS to remind us of! This whole case has been like a Hitchcock murder movie from the beginning!

    On the other hand: The slightest contradiction in his (and anybody's) alibi should have lead to an arrest.

  122. does anyone know when the next court decision is due on Harlow Cuadra's petition to get the Virginia search warrant affidavits unsealed?

    The shit has got to hit the fan in Luzerne County if/when Harlow does get those search warrant affidavits unsealed.

    What if the documents show that Judge Michael Conahan and the DA in Kocis 2002 criminal case were involved in preparing the search warrant affidavits against Harlow?

  123. I think every 30 days they have to move to reseal which I have no doubt they will. I do not think the DA is the problem since that would be the same DA as the 2001 case. BUT it would raise eyebrows if Conahan signed the Death ,,uh excuse me Search Warrant for Harlow,,,,

  125. Howard you have the advantage over me regarding GayVN because while you tell us you were there I have had to rely upon what Bryan told me occurred - and what I can recall him saying.

    If Aaron turned up unannounced on the night of Bryan's murder then what is your theory about the meeting/model that Bryan advised an associate about?

    I just wonder how the Aaron theory falls in with everything else.

    +++++++++

    Conahan is the Presiding Judge in Luzerne County. As such the more contentious warrants are placed before him. If this warrant was higher profile than normal then it seems quite likely to me that he would be the one signing it off.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Well I all ready have that up sort of. We could do a list of suspects and there reasons to want Bryan dead. The only problem with that is all those avenues has already been crossed.
    We know Harlow really had no reason to kill Bryan and he has stated that he has an alibi for the date and time of the murder.
    Sean, Grant and Lee were in California and there whereabouts can be accounted for on the day and evening of Bryan’s Murder.
    The boy that Bryan was arrested for having underage sex with and video tapping could well be considered a suspect because of the fact that the charges were reduced and his right for restitution removed due to the decision.
    Aaron is a new addition to the mix he was in Las Vegas with Bryan as has been mentioned on several occasions. Thus making him privy to the information of the settlement.
    Zane was in San Diego during the days after the Vegas trip with Bryan and he may have more insight on Bryan’s demeanor after the parties met and finalized the settlement.
    We know that Bryan went home after the 20th of January and was murdered 4 days later.
    We also know that the police said he E-mailed an associate about a potential meeting with a new model.
    The supposed model was Harlow Cuadra. But we all know that Harlow was not the type of model that Bryan would use. He just does not fit the Cobra type.

    Who ever E-mailed Bryan the picture of Harlow and set up the meeting should be considered suspect number 1 in Bryan’s murder.

    Also the “associate” who received the supposed E-mail from Bryan would also be considered a suspect in their part of an elaborate frame of Harlow to divert attention away from them. The fact that it was done so soon after the settlement is truly quite interesting. This would make all believe that the murder had to do with LSG Media which could be the reason for the timing of the murder.

    The facts are there and many people seem to not want to believe that it could be someone else besides Harlow or the members of LSG Media.

    So to do a list of suspects really would be of no use as they have all been listed from what we know.
    Short of placing the blame on Luzerne County and it’s public officials as suspects we seem to have a pretty good list so far.

  130. Howard @ 5:55am says, mj 3:37a.m. why do you keep saying this comment by Brent has been removed? I have seen it on his site every time I have looked for it. Yes I cleared my cache & besides this laptop is just 5 weeks old.

    Howard, perhaps you missed the comments before mine saying the blog post from Sean had been deleted. I didn't make that up. Others said it was deleted and I assumed it to be true. The point of my comment was not to dissect why the comment was deleted or even if it was. The point of my post was to share what Sean said, and that's what I did.

    Howard says, mj with hindsight you can read this as an honest mention of his conflicting emotions about the settlement.

    As I said Howard, we can all infer what the meaning was behind Sean's words. But only he knows for certain what he meant with that comment. Not you and not I. Only Sean.

    Howard, you mention seeing Bryan and Aaron together at GayVN. Okay, I believe you are the only person, so far, to have said that publicly. So can you provide us with more specifics of what you saw? You say you saw Bryan and Aaron together. When? The first day of the convention? The second? Every day? What was the date? Were Sean and Grant there at that time as well? You say you witnessed Bryan and Sean hug. What day was this? Where was Aaron at this moment? Did you see him? Was he there? Was Grant there? Lee? Were there any other people that you recognized there at that moment? The answers to these questions may help us in getting a more thorough understanding of Sean's trip to Vegas and what exactly went on there. We appreciate your first hand account of this situation and I do hope you can offer more specifics here.

    Finally, an observation. Some folks here mention that they feel Aaron is a suspect now. It's interesting that as soon as a person is brought up, no matter the context, they are instantly considered a suspect. I mean, we've had Sean, Grant, Lee, a fan of Sean's, Harlow, Joe, Mark, Damon Kruezer, the DA's office of Luzerne county and even a judge all referred to at one time or another as "suspects" by various posters here and on Jason's site. We've had conspiracy theories out the window being discussed as of late involving politicians, Atty. Al Flora and the list goes on. Is it just me or does this all seem a little crazy? I mean, let's put things into perspective here. I've heard Aaron's name mentioned maybe two other times, many weeks ago on Jason's site when Cad confirmed that Bryan and Aaron kept in touch. And then, this morning, as soon as his name is mentioned again (let's not forget who mentioned his name this time; Sean) he's just about convicted of murder in the eyes of some posters here.

    How about we slow down, take a step back, keep our feet firmly planted in reality and see what information we can find out before, in our minds and comments, we pretty much lock someone up and throw away the key.

  131. Judge Michael Conahan WAS "President" Judge of Luzerne County court at the time of Kocis' 2002 guilty plea. However, it is my understanding that Conahan's five year term as president judge expired.

    There is a legal blog on the net that claims that "Conahan rules Luzerne County Court with an Iron Fist" even though Conahan is technically no longer the President Judge.

    I think you may be right about Aaron being BB. He seems to hate Brent and has been posting mean things about him from the beginning.

    This is the second to the last post on Jason’s blog from the “Brent Corrigan Explains It All For You” thread.
    It appears that BB is about to blow a gasket. He rants and attacks anyone who has any thing nice to say about Brent Corrigan. There is a deep-seated hate there. I think Brent should watch his back because of this poster. He made threats to report them to the FBI and to report them for tax evasion on different threads. It’s funny that you say that you think he might be Aaron. The rage he has is scary.

    Sean Lockhart and Grant CobraKiller Roy are lowest of the low. They will stoop to any level necessary to cover their tracks. Nasty low life pieces of shit. I hold the CobraKiller more responsible due to his old age.

    Imagine selling your BF online to commit fraud. He cares only about himself. They both have serious mental issues. They might use that as a defense when the degenerates are held accountable for their various actions which include: Tax fraud, abusing/raping a child (Jeremy), and murder. Indeed they are far worse than what they claimed Bryan to be.

    They can get it away with it... only for so long. It WILL catch up to them eventually. I have faith in the legal system, even if it does take its sweet time.

    elmysterio is a Bryan hater. He tries to pretend that he's fair and impartial but he is in fact a Bryan hater. Hating Bryan is fine but you should just be up front about it and not pretend some fake impartiality. I've read his blog. He believes the worst about Bryan. He claims Cobra video used and abused it's models with no proof even though when this whole tragedy started two of Bryan's former models came onto this site and had only nice things to say about Bryan.

    Elm let me ask you. You seem to think that Sean was underaged when he performed for Cobra. I don't believe that for a second. Did you through away your copies of School Boy Crush, Every Pool Boys Dream and so forth?

    elmysterio said...
    I have never said that I liked Bryan. I do not like cruel people. And the truth of the matter on the videos that you mentioned I have never seen them. I have never found young boys sexually attractive. I enjoy men, grown men; boys have never been one of my things. I also have issues with grown men who want to have sex with young boys. Older men approached me when I was in my teens and I found them disgusting and lecherous. On one particular occasion I had a physical altercation with one who would not take no for an answer. Needles to say he left me alone after I kicked him in the nuts and scratched his face then reported his butt to the police. That’s why I have issues with pedophiles. That answer you question?

    So elmysterio you don't think 44 year old guys should be able to have sex with 18yo guys huh. Your no different than the people who don't think gays should have sex at all.

    18 is legal everywhere in the US. As far as we know Bryan only had on incident with a minor and he ended up in court over it. All the evidence so far points to him being very fair and kind to his models and the only model i've known to say otherwise is a pathological lier who leaves broken lives and destruction everywhere he goes. Let's see how many is it so far. Lee, Jeremy, Chris(the ex) and Bryan ooops we can't say Bryan anymore because not only did Sean decide to work with Bryan again but was seen dancing with him.

    I'm sorry about the experience you had when you were young but your letting your age hang-ups affect your judgement. Just because Sean is young and cute doesn't mean he isn't scum.

    elmysterio said
    Apparently you misunderstood what I was saying. I never said that a 44year old man could not have sex with someone 18 or older as long as it is consentuel. What I negated to say is that when I had my encounter with a lecherous older man was that I was fourteen (14) years old at the time. I was not wearing what you would call sexually provocative clothing a sweater a shirt and dress slacks and I was minding my own business and did not speak to the man until he made a move towards me. So I was not asking for it. You know the rest. I hope that answers you question.

    So in answer to your other question I do have issues with older men who want to have sex with young under age boys.

  135. the bottom line is that Kocis' death seems to have everyone in Luzerne County asking about Kocis' 2002 guilty plea and the way that plea was completely changed in 2006. There is so much attention to this in Luzerne County that Kocis' family re-hired the lawyer Kocis used in 2002 and in 2006.

    So, maybe

    1. Kocis was killed to keep him from talking about what happened in 2002 and 2006; or

    2. Kocis was killed so that what happened in 2002 and 2006 would blow up in the face of Judge Michael Conahan, The Luzerne County DA's office and blow up in the face of attorney Al Flora.

    Essentially, both of the above have been accomplished. Kocis can't talk about what happened in 2002 and 2006. AND, what happened in 2002 and 2006 has blown up in the face of Conahan, the Luzerne County DA and attorney Al Flora.

  136. I find it quite interesting that we have all the diversion on this thread from Aaron to BB to The molested boy and the Luzerne County Judicial system being involved in this murder. Let’s put the suspects into perspective shall we.

    Aaron: the boy model scorned by Bryan over his apparent infatuation with one Brent Corrigan the new price of Cobra. Aaron was replaced as Bryan’s “Favorite” only to come back and regain his special place to be dethroned by Brent again with the new settlement and the prospect of Bryan and Brent working together again.

    BB: due to his apparent hate of Brent and Grant/Cobra killer and any thing to do with them and his obvious obsession with Bryan Kocis. Maybe he was a scorned model who’s affections were not returned by Bryan because of the ongoing feud time consuming with Brent and Grant. And because he has been accused of being Aaron.

    The molested boy: the fact that after such a traumatic experience in his youth he has come to realize that he was treated badly and wanted restitution and the changing of the charges limited his ability to do so. He confronts Bryan for money and things get out of hand.

    The Luzerne County Judicial System: Where do we begin with this one. Well the reduction of Bryan’s criminal charges and the possible cover up of other unsavory details to do with the case and basic government corruption and judicial misconduct.

    Brent, Grant Lee and Harlow as of now have been ruled out because of their supposed alibis.

  137. I would still like to know who was the last person to see Kocis alive?

    Someone posted that Kocis shared a car home from the Airport with someone. So, right there, you have the driver of the Limo driving UP TO Kocis' house.

    Was the Limo driver the last person to see Kocis alive (other than the killer(s))

  138. Anon 8:41 said somthing that lit spark in my dull brain. I do see a possible reason to kill Bryan. I am admittedly speculating. Not my usual style but try this. Bryan DID pay off the DA and Judge and family of the kid he raped. Bryan continued to channel money in the right directions to keep his buisness 'problem free.' He was in it deep. (Yea, I was gonna say up to his neck, sorry.) Bryan was caught between a rock and a hard place. Damned if he did and damned if he didn't. The settlement was only a part of his survival plan. (CAD has finally come around to agreeing with me, at least in part, that Bryan was forced to settle, for many reasons.) The other part of his survival plan could have been (SPECULATION TIME) to turn states evidence. In other words expose the corruption in his little hamlet in exchange for some deal out of his kiddie porn problem. Immunity. It would have been a good deal.
    That does not solve the murder but just felt like throwing an idea out, like an empty pinata.

  139. Thanks Howard @ 8:10pm for getting back to me. I agree with you that the list of suspects is long but those who fit the profile are few and far between at this point.

    Of course, we also don't know if more than one individuals are involved in Bryan's murder. One to keep Bryan's attention diverted and another to actually kill him. Just a possibility but even if that's the case, I agree that at least one person (if there was more than one) involved in this knew Bryan very well and was someone that Bryan trusted. For him to let them in as he did and for there to be no defensive wounds.

    "(CAD has finally come around to agreeing with me, at least in part, that Bryan was forced to settle, for many reasons.)"

    Now, now Albert that is a big spin on what I said. One aspect that very definetly not "forced" upon Bryan was the timing.

    I can only offer my version of events from the Cobra perspective. I have yet to read anyone from LSG present their justification for the timing and nature of the settlement.

    None of which takes us forward on the murder.

    ++++++++++++++++

    Elm, just a couple of points:-

    (1) I was not aware we had been made aware of Grant and Sean's alibis. Even if they had them it does not eliminate the use of a professional killer, so I would not eliminate either as possible suspects.

    (2) The Forest Men site requires people to pay $795 to make contact with Sean or the other porn models listed on the site. The whole tone of the site although discrete suggests that sex will be available once contact is made.

    +++++++++++++++

    The problem I have with the conspiracy theories including Albert's latest one remains the method of murder.

    I accept that all those ceremonial wounds could have been premeditated to make it look like a crime of passion. However, wouldn't it be easier for Bryan to just dissappear ?

    His house was in a built up area which would seem high risk for a killer to visit and why at 8pm when people are still around ?

    ReplyDelete
  141. Notice Cad pointedly ignores Howards 8:10 p.m. post. 3 suspects just 3! Harlow who Bryan was expecting oh so sorry He has an Alibi,must have checked out Harlow not arrested.2. Sean, Bryan would have opened the door for him ohh We can Assume Alibis checked out cause Sean has not been arrested! If they havent been (Alibi checking)what the fuck have the police been doing for 10 weeks? 3. Aaron or any other Boy Toy,jilted lover or CONFIDANT of Bryan The Fact is Bryan opened that door to a Friend,someone KNOWN to him,not a stranger. So what so called "friendly face" slit Bryans throat, surprisng him, and yes cad doing it at an early hour. The Act was brazen no doubt about that. But it was No stranger unless the Police are lying(not an unknown proposition) maybe the door was busted in,,,,

    ReplyDelete
  142. Here is a possibility.....We know all three people G,S,L spoke with Bryan the day he was killed. The last one at 6 p.m. EST. Perhaps they were simply trying to make sure he was home.....

    Strangely enough, in this sleepy little town the neighbors don't really keep up with the comings and goings of each other unless there is some kind of major disturbance to draw their attention. Bryan had kept to himself all these years so it's not like anyone in particular would be watching his back and watch who his visitors were.

    Cad, if someone other than the person who sent him the picture showed up at his door, why would he open it? And wouldn't he want to rush that person out before the meeting took place? Was he in the habit of having another person with him when he met with a new potential model?

    El, you say Harlow isn't Cobra material, why would Bryan even accept his appointment then? Just for a "casting couch" session?

    Putting the Luzerne County government in on a conspiracy is a little out there even for us. I mean every town has its issues, but I don't think Bryan had the whole town by its balls.

    The timing is very interesting. Killed one day before the signed agreement was to be sent to him. Hmmmmmm......I wonder if people thought that Cobra would just be sold off or closed down. Then the agreement couldn't be enforced.

    Last but not least Aaron. Now this is a very interesting development. Has anyone been able to confirm his whereabouts prior to the murder? I find it extremely interesting he took over the company after Bryan's death. Especially since what I've read about him, he was extremely possessive of Bryan and his attentions. I am almost certain he will make sure that agreement is enforced just to further embarass and harass Sean.

    If someone was hired to kill Bryan, they did the job and definitely were good a casting suspicion all over the place. Knowing there would be no shortage of suspects, the waters became muddied very early on.

    Here's a thought, the detectives will move slowly and let all the evidence be destroyed. Then they will charge Harlow with murder and there will be no way to prove otherwise. The evidence as they present it will have to be accepted with no way to refute it. Talk about a one way ride to jail......

    We may never figure out who really did this unless people stop hiding what information they truly know. Did it ever occur to anyone the cops don't want them to say anything so they can just railroad the easiest suspect and close the case?

    El, is there anyone you know of that people could tell what they really know and get something constructive done with that information?

  143. Cad you raise a valid point about the time of the evening that Bryan was killed. That could be why the used a knife as opposed to a gun. The LSG groups attorney made reference to they’re whereabouts when he spoke to the press. The fact that Bryan let his killers in is very telling like most of us have said it would have to be someone he trusted. The fact that there were no defensive wounds means there was a level of trust for someone to walk behind him and do this or as MJ suggests if there were two people one to distract while the other one killed him. The 28 stab wounds would suggest someone who had serious anger towards Bryan but I will concede that they could be ceremonial. Here’s the deal about murder it never makes sense. Most murders are not premeditated they just in happen in a fit of rage. I could clearly see that in this one. To have a professional hit be this messy and in a populated area such as Bryan lived in would be too risky. The fire was set to cover up their crime and to “fool” the police. It is obvious that who ever killed Bryan spent some time in the house after he was killed. The killer was most likely in a panic about what they had just done. I really don’t see this as a professional hit when the murder weapon was left behind. The murderer set the fire to destroy evidence and possibly the records were kept at the home. It appears that Bryan really pissed someone off to the point of murder.

    I can truly see that happening just from the way he handled the whole situation with Brent. And there were a few other models that he was not very nice to like the model named Billy who’s picture is removed from the web-site. Who knows how many other models he pissed off and or possibly got infected with HIV after working on one of his movie sets? He lied to them about the accuracy of the HIV test that he used. The test he used was not at all accurate. It tested for antibodies only not the virus. You can still infect someone for up to 3 months before your body produces antibodies. So in effect he lied to those boys about the accuracy of the tests that he used. You have to understand that the models he used were young and impressionable and they would most likely believe him if he told them that the test was foolproof. I would think that we could narrow down the suspects to the models who did bare back porn for Cobra.

    In regards to the forest men site the $795.00 is a yearly fee which allows you to meet and great the models no sex is implied and this is stated on the web page.

  144. If all Bryan's models were virgins and only practised safe sex after they had been filmed by Cobra then I could accept the HIV motive, however I doubt any could realistically blame Bryan if they became infected.

    I wonder if the fire was intentional. The fire officer reported that no accellerant (SP?) had been used so maybe it was just a dropped cigarette on the sofa.

    The other strange thing is the dropped knife. If it was not Bryan's then it suggests premeditation rather than just an emotional event that got out of hand. Did the visitor intend to kill Bryan ?

    A dropped knife may indicate panic.

    If Aaron was the assailant then he is one cool cookie to remain so close to Cobra.

    As for Forest Men - there has always been rumours and even some evidence of Sean escorting e.g. a review of him and Jake on men4rent.
    Why should anyone be surprised about Sean being paid to be fucked ?

  149. How interesting Sean has disappeared from the site.

    Last night (UK time) when I checked out the post made here. I searched "Meet the stars" via the banner link on rentboy.com - an escorting site.

    There were two picture of Brent Corrigan. I recall one of them was in his Fox Ryder persona.

    Also, at the bottom of the site there is a list of where you can "meet" your star without having to pay their travel costs. Brent Corrigan was listed in alphabetical order with his location stated as San Diego.

    As I say it is hardly a surprise if Sean should be escorting. But if you have any doubt of the purpose of the site just look at the context e.g. rentboy.com with in and out rates being quoted.

    If it is all so innocent why has Sean's details dissappeared so quickly ?

Never mind that YOU know who killed Bryan or have a good suspicion who it was. I think your keeping quiet cause the killer knows about YOU! He was close to Bryan after all.

  156. Did Kocis get newspaper delivery?

    Did Kocis have a home security system?

    Did Kocis have any pets that someone would have had to look after while he was in Las Vegas and San Diego?

    Doesn't it seem odd that someone would leave a house with expensive cars in the driveway, expensive video equipment and computer equipment UNOCCUPIED and UNGUARDED for a week (while Kocis was in La Vegas and San Diego)?

    btw, if someone wanted to destroy the age records of Cobra Video, wouldn't that have been easier to do when the house was allegedly empty (while Kocis was away in LV and SD)?

    Was someone house-setting Kocis house while he was away?

    Where did Kocis shop for groceries? Did he have grocceries delivered or did the local gay pornographer personally go shopping at the local grocery store? What about deliveries (UPs and Takeout? Don't most 44 year old SINGLE men have take-out delivered at some point?

    Generally, are pocket knives strong enough that they don't break with you cut someone's throat and stab someone 28 times?

    Kocis' murder was a professional hit, IMHO. A Non Pro could not have killed a 44 year old queen without knocking over the wine bottle, without Kocis putting up a struggle and without generally making a mess.

  157. You know what guys this is bull shit. I am getting tiered of all this crap. David Forest had Brent Corrigan, Brent Everrett, Brad Starr, and a bunch of other models listed on his web-sight. You guys are just so stupid ,we are talking about porn stars the have sex for a living. So what if the have sex off screen you do. At least we hope you do. Does it matter to any of you that someone is going to go to jail for this bullshit murder who did not do it. They are trying to frame Harlow for this shit and you know and I know he did not do this. Someone mentioned that if they were home they would be dead when they searched their home. Well that would of solved the bullshit case they have against him now wouldn’t it. Someone killed bryan and we don’t know who did it or do we? Figure it out people young boys porn “public models” curroupt officials.there is a pedophile ring out of luzwerne county and the judge is probably a ring leader and Bryan supplied the boys. that's why he was killed he was was getting sloopy with all the court problems and drawing to much attention to the rest of the pedofiles. this group of men are sick , there motto "at all cost blame the boy" this is a sick perverted world and you better believe that if Luzerne County can run a bullshit case acroos state lines than it's a bigger problem than we thought. Check to see if there is a chapter of nambla in luzerne county and see who belongs to it. you might be surprised. these people are sick baby fuckers. I have been following this mess for a while and Elm is right every time we start to make progress som "anon" comes on here with some diversionary bullshit. This time its sean’s an escort.

  159. There DO seem to be a lot of 40 year old men on trial for having sex with young boys in Luzerne County.

    After Kocis' 2002 case, there was an ex-priest who pled guilty to taking an underage boy to NYC for sex and this ex-priest got no jail time and was not required to register as a sex offender.

    INTERESTING. After his case in Luzerne County, the ex-priest pled guilty in New York and was required by New York to register as a sex offender. As a result of being a sex offender in New York, Pennsylvania law required that the ex-priest be listed as a sex Offender in PA.

    When the ex-priest was arrested in Luzerne County for violating the conditions of Megan's Law by living to close to a high school, he only got additional probation.

    It really does seem strange that 40 year old men having sex with underage boys don't seem to go to jail in Luzerne County

  160. Bacause the Judge Conahan,prob the D.A. and others procured their Boys from Bryan the pimp. Ephebophilia rings (see UK early 80's a minister and high govt officials were implicated)like Pedophile rings ALWAYS protect each other. A common thread is these people are in positions of Trust and Authority(Police,Lawyers,Judges,Priests)The Boys are always to blame for seducing and ruining these pervs lives. The boys are always called Trash,Whore .etc while notions of conspiracy among respected judges and Police are always derided.

  161. IT seems in keeping with the "political" nature of Luzerne County Courts that it helps to have the right lawyer. Two 40 year old men admitted to having sex with underage boys and neither one got jail time and neither one was reguired to register as a sex offender.

    You have to wonder what must a old pedophile to a kid for the pedophile to be required to register as a Sex Offender?

  162. Hey Cad, I have been reading your post and it is obvious that you hate Sean. He helped to ruin a good thing for you little group. You know what group I mean don’t you. The “National Man Boy Love Association”. I followed a few of Elm’s links to different web sites and did a search of your name “Cadinot4ever” and came up with some pretty interesting stuff that you posted on juicycoo and just us boys.
    Which side of the fence are you on? Do you feel guilty for you little obsession with under-age boy’s. Ralph woods is cute I will agree. And you think he looks younger that Sean Lockhart. How interesting because Sean looks to be around 17 or 18 now I do realize thats a little old for you so you’ve moved on to Ralph Woods who is also barley legal but legal none the less, I hope you haven’t crossed the line yet to the forbidden fruit? Is that why Ralph is working in Europe now? So Cad you run the Chapter in England? You pedophiles are so fucking stupid you always use the same lame argument. IT WAS THE BOYS FAULT ALWAYS THE BOYS FAULT IS THIS YOUR MANTRA THAT YOU CHANT WHILE FUCKING A 12 YEAR OLD BOY UP THE ASS, WHILE WAVING A NEW SKATEBOARD IN HIS FACE. You people are sick. Anyone who thinks this is bullshit needs to get a reality checkup. This stuff goes on every day in this country. It’s going on it he Churches, Congress and any where else you can find a pedophile. These people go under ground with their deviant behavior. I bet that Luzerne County is a hotbed for this bullshit. The judge with the scandal with the “Juvenile Detention Center” where he awarded the contract to a “friend” the reduction of the charges of a child abusing sex offender who was never made to register for Megan’s law. His defense the boy lied about his age, always the same lame excuse (IT WAS THE BOYS FAULT). People get wise it was Brent’s fault about the age issue. Are we so sure can we trust anything that Brent say’s. Maybe this little lie Brent told is to keep him alive. Maybe Brent is even younger tan 20 maybe he is just 18 now. Do we really know how olds he is? Get real the whole Civil Case against Brent was bull shit too. Bryan was the one who had to be 2257 compliant not Brent the model. I bet Bryan also had several other “Cobra Boys” who were under age. So many people have made comments about how easy it is for the models to Get fake ID’s, How do you know its not the producers who pay for them. Yet they still blame it on the boy. (IT WAS THE BOYS FAULT, IT’S ALWAYS THE BOYS FAULT) you people need to just stop this madness. It’s sad when Elm conveyed his experience as a teen and some bullshit poster uses it to spread their corrupt agenda Elm stay strong and great response at April 10, 2007 7:59 PM. I am so sick of the bull shit around this case.

  163. David Forest added Brent WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION FROM BRENT! As soon as it was discovered, Brent sent an email demanding it to be taken down.

    The same fan who alerted Brent Corrigan also alerted Brent Everett, so I'm assuming Mr. Everett who also does not escort asked Mr. Forest to remove him from his pimp(escort) site as well!

    Cad you consistently blame everyone but Bryan for any of the problems that led up to his murder. Granted one should not speak ill of the dead but you are trying to make the man a saint.

    I wonder if the fire was intentional. The fire officer reported that no accellerant (SP?) had been used so maybe it was just a dropped cigarette on the sofa.

    Did Bryan smoke? Does anyone know if he did? A cigarette fire could burn the sofa and cause damage to the room but this fire was so hot that it burned through the roof of the home in less than a half an hour. When the fire was reported it was just a glow and the smoke alarms were going off.the fir must have been intentional why else would the leave the door open but to add oxegen to the fire to make it burn faster. Cad you know all of this why are you asking such strange questions?

    The other strange thing is the dropped knife. If it was not Bryan's then it suggests premeditation rather than just an emotional event that got out of hand. Did the visitor intend to kill Bryan ?

    Who ever killed Bryan was obviously emotionally attached to him in some sort of way to make them kill him in such a manner. You ask a valid question about whether it was premeditated or not. If the knife can be placed at Bryan’s home prior to the murder than theoretically the murder wasn’t premeditated. If not than the killer brought the knife with them this would show forethought and would indicate a possible plan.

    A dropped knife may indicate panic.

    The dropped knife does not necessarily indicate panic; it also indicates lack of experience by the killer and or the randomness of the crime.

    If Aaron was the assailant then he is one cool cookie to remain so close to Cobra.

    He could very well be the killer. A sociopath will show no grief or remorse for their crimes to them they were justified in their actions. It also doesn’t take much to set one off on a path of destruction. Something that they see as an injustice to themselves can be a catalyst. One other thing it would appear that most are highly intelligent and function quite well in society as a whole until they have an episode and are set off like a time bomb.

    As for Forest Men - there has always been rumours and even some evidence of Sean escorting e.g. a review of him and Jake on men4rent.

    That’s just it they were rumors, David Forest has got him self in trouble with authorities before for such things. About the review of him and Jake, you do realize that there is no love lost between those 2 so I would not put it past Jake to post the add.

    Why should anyone be surprised about Sean being paid to be fucked?

    What’s the big deal we have all seen it happen in Velvet Mafia or one of his other movies. I guess the movies are fantasy and escorting might bring it to close to home for some people. April 11, 2007 7:49 AM

  167. Cobra Video Selling the US Banned videos in Europe seems like it could be a big problem, because the videos were created in the US. The videos are proof of the production of kiddie porn by Cobra in the US.

    It seems to me the profits from the European sales could be seized and that Cobra Video could be shut down in the US as a producer of kiddie porn.

    CASE IN POINT: Diamond selling cartel DeBeers, at one time anyway, could not have a store in the US because DeBeers was considered a racketeering enterprise.

    Cobra Video can legally sell videos in Europe with models that are of legal age in Europe however, I don't think Cobra Video can legally have a presence in the US if they are not in compliance with US LAW AND when there is proof that the videos were PRODUCED in the US.

    Maybe this all means that Cobra Video has already been sold to a European based company. I'm sure at this point, Al Flora would would be smart enough to NOT have a US based company selling US produced kiddie porn in Europe.

    ReplyDelete
  168. btw, the above is all so typical of how a Lawyer's mind works; Cobra can't sell the videos in the US but to further harass Brent Corrigan sell Cobra to a European company so that the videos can be sold outside of the US.

  176. Elm. If the sofa/couch was of the older type then once it caught fire it would be vicious.

    We have public information films shown on TV over here showing what happens when a cigarette is left on a non-fire retardant settee (is that a US word ?) The plastic foams used in those things are far worse than petrol. I seem to recall a major conflagration after only a few minutes.

    Such sofa/couch/settees were made illegal here around 5 years ago.

    I think it has been reported that Bryan lived in his house for many years.

    Also, we don't know the construction of the house. Somwhere it was stated that it was of a certain construction that sounded quite basic to me. Most homes are timber so burning through a couple of floors is no major achievment.

  179. What I understand from what I have read the house was a wooden structure. The fire burned through the wood floor above the living room and the ceiling above that and the roof. The house was pretty much destroyed from the news reports. There was a fire in my apartment complex recently and it burned for about the same amount of time and it was a chemical fire (meth lab) and the damage was not near as bad. It did burn through the roof but only in the room where the fire started and nowhere else. The fire department was on the scene in less than 2 minutes after it was reported. It took them about ten minutes to get under control and about 5 more to completely douse it. The biggest damage was from smoke and water. But only one room was a complete loss. The fire at Bryan’s house was intentionally set and the door was left open to feed it fresh air. You seem to think that the fire was set by a cigarette Did Bryan smoke?

    ReplyDelete
  180. Elm, I put it up as a question? Was the fire deliberate ?

    So much of what happened is assumed to have been intentional and therefore premeditated. If you remove the malice aforethought then other possibilities come into play.

    I don't recall whether or not Bryan smoked. I assume he didn't only because I am very anti-smoking and it would have registered.

    The problem I have with much of the questions that are raised about Bryan and his latter movements are that they were inconsequential at the time they happened. Had I known what was going to happen I would have kept a diary.

    Even when we chatted from gayvn I recall some of the points but what now seems critical was just chit-chat at the time. As it was it did not seem relevant to the bigger picture that we were focussed upon.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Someone mentioned that the tiniest detail could make or break this case. And something that one would think inconsequential could be the answer. You might have the answer and not even realize it. Right down the conversations you had with Bryan also instant messenger conversations are saved for a period of time see if you still have them on your computer.

  182. Elm

    I consented to the Dallas Township police accessing my personal AIM records via AOL and approached AOL to see if they could recover my final chat with Bryan.

    It seems that once you log off AIM the contents are erased. Obviously I did my own research and this seems to be the case unless you install some certain spy software before.

    As much as anything I would like to have Bryan's final words.

    The danger I am trying to avoid is inventing things he did not say. It is all to easy to convince myself and therefore I avoid saying anything that I am not completely sure about.

  187. Before I say anything else, I do just want to mention, Sean must have more free time on his hands than I would know what to do with. It's all I can do to go to work, keep up my house and get through each day. I can't imagine taking an inventory of my things and writing excerpts about them all. As interesting as I guess it could be though...

    Well, if nothing else Elm, we now know that Sean reads your blog. It was just yesterday or the day before it was mentioned by myself and others that Sean could always post a copy of his birth certificate on his site, etc. and low and behold, look what he's posted today. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that that discussion may have played a role in his decision to do so. Now, it isn't a birth certificate, no, but it is a step in the right direction and I would like to applaud Sean for taking that step and posting that photo. I do wish he'd done that a year and a half ago but one can't be too picky. I'm not going to say anything else about the license other than I personally appreciate Sean posting it. As I said, I see this as Sean taking a step in the right direction and starting to address issues which are long overdue on being addressed. Before I get too congratulatory though, let's see what the future brings and what Sean's future blog posts say. I'm cautiously optimistic, I will admit.

  188. Elm. Thanks to Photoshop I could post my first Washington licence too, as well as my First Man on The Moon certificate.

    If it was really that easy, do you think it would be posted incidentally after what, 20 months ?
    How many times have I said that Sean mentions his age in EVERY blog post. He even admits that he edited the image to remove his address and for some reason the expiry date has been removed by a hole punch. On the later point I accept that it could be some US practice to deface out of date licences.

    A nice, light blog post but I remain a Sean agnostic.

  190. Well I checked and the number is a valid Washington State driver’s license. It expires on his 21st birthday. Which is this year by the date on the license. I don’t think he would alter this license since he lived in California when he went to work for Cobra Studios he would have changed a California license. He would also need to have a California license to establish residency here to go to school. So I think this one just might be the real deal.

    ...the Underage Denialists squeal in unison: "It's a forgerieeee!"

    I knew it I knew it I knew it I knew I knew it I knew it I knew it I knew it...etc...HA!

    LOL! If the clouds parted, and GOD HIMSELF, accompanied by the entire Heavenly Host, descended upon the Earth...and then pointed his Divine Finger at Brent, and said:

    "BEHOLD! Here be my favorite porn star Brent, aka Sean, born the Day of October 31, Yeah of...um...Me, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Eighty.....SIIIIIIXXXXXXX!!!!!" (booming voice)

    Do you know what you Underage Denialists would say if this happened?

    "Eh, we're still agnostic."

    LOL!!!!!!

    I KNEW you all were going to do this if this I.D. ever finally got posted...SAID SO all along, and as usual I am prooven right! I KNEW you were just gonna say it was a forgery...I PREDICTED YOU WERE GOING TO SAY THIS!!!! I WAS RIGHT!!!

    Now, this being the case...what's the point of Brent providing this I.D. you all have been clamoring for, lo these many months?

    Oh, yeah...THERE IS NO POINT TO IT!

    It's pointless. Because no matter what evidence if proffered, you'll all find SOME WAY to doubt it. "It's a LIEEEE!" "It's a forgerieeee!" Etc...

    Frankly, I DON'T know why Brent even bothered with this stunt. NOTHING he can show you will ever be good enough. LOL!

    Oh well, this event was not ENTIRELY pointless I guess...it did give me an opportunity to say "I told you so!" and I suppose, that is something. LOL!

  194. I've been lurking but not posting. I made a vow to myself to stop being so Brent obsessed (as per Jason's sage advice!)...and to only post again when a major development in the murder investigation got reported in the mainstream media. Ie, no more pointless speculation posts (this whole Luzerne Cty Mafia nonsense being a prime example thereof).

    Although not strictly murder related, this posted Brent ID qualifies as a major event IMO, justifying a brief emergence from hiatus! So...voila! here I am!

    Elm, I been missin' you and the rest of the gang here too! Smooch! :)

    Elm. Thanks to Photoshop I could post my first Washington licence too, as well as my First the image to remove his address and for some reason the expiry date has been removed by a hole punch. On the later point I accept that it could be some US practice to deface out of date licences.

    A nice, light blog post but I remain a Sean agnostic.

    No cad I'm an Agnostic in general your an Athiest there is a differance. I'm talking God your talking Sean ;) Cad you also validate what I said on Brents blog that a Birth certificate posted WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTED under ANY Circumstance . Some people are not prepared to accept Brents true age because they must then acknowledge they jacked off to an underage kid. Much better to be in perpetual denial. Friends,Fans & neighbors who have seen Brent have KNOWN all along his true age. I would also mention Elm yes your out of state license is whole punched thru the expiration date when the new Cali license is issued. Washington state would still show a current license as I am sure Cali does not inform Washington when a new one is issued. Take a close look 14 states now have Vertical (or skyscraper license) for under 21 drivers part of the ongoing battle to keep our 18 to 21 yo youth from drinking legally even though they are expected to DIE in Iraq. Sorry change of subject ;) I think it is obvious Bryan refused the BC when offered because he did not like what he saw, I think the "unspoken demand" by Bryan all along the past 2 years was "This whole case (and legal trouble) will "go away" when you provide me with documents showing you were OVER 18 in 2004. Bryan wanted Sean to forge doc's and ID to get him off the hook, This would not be the first time a producer expected a boy to FORGE I.D

  196. OK, I'm looking at the I.D. in my own copy of Photoshop CS. Magnification 500%.

    At this level I can make out the individual pixels.

    I can see the obvious photo manipulation where the address is supposed to be. The pixels here do not match up. Looks like Clone Stamp was used to cover up the text here. Not unexpected. At the pixel level, signs of manipulation...even the most subtle ones...become impossible to conceal.

    So, now I'm looking at the DOB and the "Age 18 On" years, especially noting the last digit.

    I see no sign whatsoever of any photoshopping. That "6" and that "4" look completely unretouched. The right spacing, the perfect shading and hue of each pixel, the unique angle caused by being photographed slightly off to one side...everything looks normal. It looks completely REAL.

    No Cad, unless you are some sort of digital artist with the skill of a Michaelangelo I doubt very much if you could post such a Washinton State Drivers License of your own like this online.

  197. You go detective Jim Break it on down for the doubters. But there will still be those who will doubt the authenticity of the license. It’s just sad that we are at this state. But I believe and to me that is all that really matters. To each his own.
