The CEO of Rentboy.com is breaking his silence months after federal agents raided the gay escort website's office in New York City. Jeffrey Hurant, who was one of many Rentboy.com employees arrested on prostitution charges in August, took to Facebook on Oct. 28th, asking the public for donations to support Rentboy.com's legal team.
by RentBoy.com's CEO, Jeffery Hurant:
"I realize that I have been very quiet on Facebook since my arrest on August 25th. I have been advised by legal counsel not to make any public statements about the case. As any of you who know me can guess, this hasn't been easy for me. This ordeal has been devastating for me, my family, my ex-employees and all the people my company has helped through the years. "
"I am very grateful for all the support I have gotten from friends far and wide throughout the crisis. I count my blessings every day. The brilliant team at Sher Tremonte, LLP has been working tirelessly preparing my defense. Even though I have not been proven guilty of committing any crime, the government has seized all the assets that I can use to defend myself, so I am here asking for your financial help to insure that this case has the best legal minds working on it."
"Please consider donating to the http://www.rentboyfund.org/ Legal Defense Fund."
The website is also apparently liquidating their assets and is selling its merchandise and the content of its office via craigslist
