HIV+ Porn Star Faces 9 Felony Charges for Alleged Sexual Assault of Young Teen

Gay porn star Mike Dozer, the HIV-positive actor who came under fire last year for opposing condoms in porn, was arrested in December in Delaware on charges of statutory rape, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and aggravated indecent assault for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy he met on a gay hookup app, reports.

The gay porn news site reported on Feb. 8 that Dozer, whose real name is Christopher Steele, was arrested in Delaware on multiple felony charges for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old boy in Montgomery County, Pa. Because Dozer, 33, is HIV-positive the Montgomery County's district attorney's office added a reckless endangerment charge.

Police say the porn star, who has been HIV-positive for six years, met the young teen by using the gay hookup app Jack'D. He drove to the teen's home in Pennsylvania last spring and allegedly forced him to take poppers and then had sex with him. Police also allege that Dozer knew the teen was underage but didn't care.

Authorities add that the porn star and the 14-year-old teen exchanged naked photos of each other prior to their meeting. Str8UpGayPorn notes it's unclear if the teen reported the alleged assault on his own or if police had been monitoring Dozer beforehand.

Kevin Wray, Dozer's attorney, spoke with Philadelphia Gay News and said that the porn star didn't know the teen was underage.

"At some point, he came to the realization that this person wasn't 18 and took off," Wray told the newspaper. "This kid kept pursuing him and apparently had done so with others."

Wray also said that Jack’D requires users to verify that they are over age 18 and when Dozer found out that the teen was underage, he attempted to end relations with him. The attorney added the reckless-endangerment charge is inappropriate if it is related to Dozer’s HIV status.

"It bothered me a great deal and seemed to be offensive," Wray told Philadelphia Gay News. "He takes medication and is constantly moderating it. Charging someone with [reckless endangerment] because they are HIV-positive is homophobic and ignorant. We don’t go to people who have herpes, colds, strep throat and charge them. If that is the standard, they need to be indicting everybody. It’s amazing that, 35 years later, the public is still oblivious to the simple fact that HIV does not equal AIDS."

Dozer’s bail was set at $1 million and when reported the incident, Dozer was in custody in a Montgomery County prison. The porn actor’s preliminary hearing was reportedly scheduled for Jan. 6. He will appear in court again on Feb. 27.

Str8UpGayPorn reports in a different article that Dozer faces nine felony charges in total, and that most of the charges are second-degree felonies and four misdemeanor counts. The first-degree felony charge of sex with someone under 16, carries a maximum sentence of 20-years in prison. If found guilty on sexual assault and aggravated assault, both second-degree felony charges, Dozer could face up to 10-years in prison. The third-degree felonies carry 7-year sentences. If the porn star is found guilty on all charges, he could be sentenced to prison for 75-years.

Dozer made headlines in the gay porn world last year for supporting bareback sex and opposing condoms, after wearing a t-shirt that reads, "condoms are for pussies." notes that he performed in a bareback scene for but also performed in scenes with Raging Stallion and Falcon Studios with condoms. wrote a scathing article about Dover’s barebacking scene, which you can read here.

Dozer has a Facebook and a Twitter account but both social media sites have been inactive since early/mid-December.

Gay porn index website, Al’s Gay Porn Stars, calls Dozer a "muscle bear" and has a quote from him explaining how he got his start in the adult film industry.

"A friend of mine asked if I bottomed, I said, ’Occasionally.’ His curiosity to see me bottom is kinda how it started. One day he called and said it was all lined up and all I had to do was email Dark Alley and it was a done deal."

    If guilty,the court needs to give the maximum sentence. I have no patience with anyone involved in the sexual assault of underage persons whether or not their victims think this is what they want. The fact is that underage persons do not have the real ability to make good informed decisions on their sexuality.

    To Wayne M: Are you serious? The kid had the "real ability" to find the site he wanted to troll for sex to begin with. And the kid lied to use the site. Did you read the entire article, or just scan the headline? Mike claims he cut it off with this kid when he found out he was underage.

    But he had sex with the boy anyway so that makes him guilty. On top of that he didn’t use protection with the boy and he’s HIV+. He clearly didn’t care if he would transmit the virus or not. That’s just wrong.

    Something si ilar happened to a friend of mine. Tons of minors lying on websites looking and pursuing adults. They know exactly what they want! They been having sex for years! They will lie to you ans get you in jail because they dont care!!! Minos can have all the sex they want, lie, and the law will protect them. Thats why we are in the shithole that we are. Where kids dont respect their elders. Kids shoot and stabs their teachers and other studends. Dont respect their parents. This 14 yr old adolescent knew very well what he was doing!!! He wanted swx with an adult, he wanted without condom. He knew all the way. Laws need to change in order to prosecute this minors that obviously are also breaking the law. This was not rape. Was consensual sex. But the law twist it so it looks it was the adult’s fault.

    The private businessmen from multi-billion condom industry or even more multi-billion antiretroviral pharma industry have perfectly organized this provocation against Mike.
