(EDGE) A gay porn star has been sentenced to nearly five years in jail for conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to commit money laundering, according to a report from the gay porn news site (extremely NSFW) Str8UpGayPorn.

Chris Bines, whose real name is Steven Sholly, along with four other defendants, plead guilty to the charges in October last year. Bines, 31, was sentenced to 59 months in prison on conspiracy to distribute marijuana - one month short of five years. The felony count of conspiring to distribute a significant amount of marijuana that is over 3,500 ounces with a street value of up to $1 million.

Over the course of three years, Bines and his co-conspirators earned and laundered more than $3.5 million from the sales of marijuana. 

Bines was indicted over the summer of 2017.

"Between 2014 and 2017, the defendants conspired to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana in the Northern District of Florida," a press release from Florida U.S. Attorney's Office reads in part, according to Str8UpGayPorn (again, NSFW). "...The cash proceeds of the marijuana distribution were laundered through bank accounts and later mailed to addresses in California. More than $3.5 million in cash proceeds from the sale of marijuana was laundered during the time frame of the conspiracy."

After his release in 2023, Bines will be on supervised release for another three years, according to the website. 

Bines has worked for a number of gay porn studios, including Falcon, Men.com, and Randy Blue.
