Porn star Lylith Lavey settles Mr. Marcus syphilis case with BangBros

The LA Daily News is reporting that BangBros has settled with porn star Lylith Lavey in regards to the Mr. Marcus syphilis case.

Porn actor Jesse Spencer, known as Mr. Marcus, was sentenced to 30 days in jail for exposing two adult-film co-stars to syphilis. His sentence included 36 months probation and 15 days of community labor. He was also ordered to pay Heather DeAngelo, known in the porn industry as Lylith Lavey, a $129,360 judgment.

An adult film actress and a production company settled a lawsuit she filed after she allegedly became exposed to syphilis while shooting a video.

Heather DeAngelo, known in the porn industry as Lylith Lavey, sued BangBros in February 2014 in Los Angeles Superior Court. Her attorneys filed court papers March 13 with Judge Teresa Beaudet stating that the case was resolved. No details were divulged.

The suit alleged the company should have known that actor Marcus Spencer, known professionally as Mr. Marcus, had the communicable disease.

DeAngelo suffered emotional distress as well as castigation from others in her field as a result of the incident, the suit states. She did not contract the disease.

“Plaintiff completed the scene with Mr. Marcus and subsequently found out that (he) had syphilis,” the suit stated.

The county issued a temporary moratorium on pornographic filming after the incident and implemented stricter requirements to ensure that pornographic producers ensure the safety of the actors, according to the complaint.

DeAngelo previously filed a lawsuit against Spencer over being exposed syphilis, alleging fraud, negligence, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She obtained a $129,360 default judgment against him last June.

Spencer was sentenced to 30 days in jail for exposing two adult-film co-stars to syphilis. His sentence included 36 months probation and 15 days of community labor.
