Porn actor gets life sentence for WSU rape

Associated Press
 

The pornographic film actor known as Jack Venice was given a life sentence for raping a woman at a Washington State University sorority.

Under the sentence he received Friday in Whitman County Superior Court, the 26-year-old native of Houston, Christopher Jack Reid, will be eligible for parole in nine years.

Reid was convicted in October of second-degree rape and three burglary counts.

Radio station KRPL reports Reid told the court he is sorry for what happened to the victim but maintains his innocence. His lawyer plans an appeal.

The victim told the court she is afraid of being attacked again and sleeps with the lights on.

Prosecutors say Reid and a WSU student got drunk and broke into several sororities in search of women to co-star in sex videos.
