Quoted: Porn star-turned-prosecutor Mark Suben

“Young people who make foolish mistakes. . . often grow up to be productive members of their community. I know that first hand. Because I used bad judgment myself in my youth.”




Mark Suben, the district attorney for Cortland County, N.Y., explaining why he always tries to be fair to young offenders: Because, as he confessed at a press conference Friday, he starred in a number of porn films (“The Lecher,” “The Dr.’s Teenage Dilemma,” etc.) in the early 1970s. Whoa! Suben’s admission was prompted by the release of an anonymous YouTube Thursday presenting his old film clips as evidence. The prosecutor had previously denied rumors about his thespian past to reporters when it came up during his successful reelection campaign, reports Syracuse’s WSTM-TV.
