Even by prosecutors’ account, Brien Hughes had seemingly beaten the odds. The son of a drug-addicted mother and absent father whose first brush with the law came at age 14 found an outlet in football and mentoring youths. He graduated from high school — he says with a 3.5 grade-point average — and won a college scholarship.
Then he dropped out and joined a gang.
Instead of becoming a teacher or a football star, Hughes, who also went by “Poncho,” earned a leadership position in the Nine Trey Gangsters, a subset of the Bloods. He was part of a robbery crew and joined his fellow gangsters in a May 2013 home invasion in which he and others bound, beat and threatened to kill a Fredericksburg mother and her 18-year-old son.
Chaim Amalek writes: From the article: According to court papers from both sides, Hughes’s life seemed to begin spiraling downward in college, when he dropped out after one semester because of health problems. . . . The attorney, Rebecca Wade, said “Had he not gotten sick in college, he probably would be a teacher right now,” Luke, this man is your doppelganger.
But for a chance encounter on the radio with Dennis Prager (apparently known on the West Coast), Luke might have become the next superstar male porn star of porn’s Golden Age.
