Ex-gay porn star Ryan Idol gets 12 years in prison for beating ex-girlfriend

From our sister paper, The Sacramento Bee:

More than a year after his conviction, a one-time gay porn star who beat his former girlfriend over the head with a toilet tank lid has been sentenced to 12 years in state prison for attempted murder.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Troy L. Nunley imposed the term Wedneday on Marc Anthony Donais, 46, who established a reputation in the 1990s as one of the top stars in his genre under the name of Ryan Idol.

According to the victim's testimony at trial, Donais entered the woman's apartment the night of Sept. 5, 2009, and told her, "I came over here to kill you." The two had been involved in a relationship, but the woman -- whose name is being withheld because she is a domestic violence victim -- said she cut it off when she caught him having sex with his male lover.

Good Luck in the slammer Mr. Idol Donais. You'll get plenty of new daddies there, for sure.

What a dumb comment Cooper. Where you there when it happened to be so exited about someone's jail sentence?! Domestic violence cases are never black and white.

@ Leroy, I take issue with your statement, "Domestic violence cases are never black and white." I believe in some cases they are. I don't know all the facts of this case and I presume you don't either, so what are you trying to say with your statement? That somehow his girlfriend brought the beating upon herself? That she somehow deserved it? Perhaps there was a history of arguments or fights between the couple, perhaps the girlfriend even instigated some of the fights, but beating someone over the head with a toilet tank cover after stating your intention to kill them is reprehensible and never justifiable. In this instance, Mr. Donais' 12-year sentence seems fit and well deserved.

i knew this jerk idol for 12 years. he is a con artist, a liar. a thief. a drug addict, and a violent person, and suiccidal. yes! im glad he is in the slammer for a long stretch.
