A district attorney in central New York on Friday admitted to appearing in a number of pornographic films and apologized for lying to the media, according to The Post Standard.


"Recently materials have been circulated alleging that I was involved in the adult film industry 40 years ago in New York," Cortland County district attorney Mark Suben said during a press conference. "Those allegations are true. I was an actor in adult films for a short period in the early 70s. I was also an actor in other venues including off Broadway, soap operas and commercial advertisements."

Suben said he regretted lying to the press last month about his involvement in the films, explaining he was "shocked and embarrassed" that the issue had come to light. He described his pornographic performances as "foolish mistakes."

Suben said his aspirations to become an actor didn't pan out, and he became devoted to the study of law.

According to the website IMBD, Suben acted in 13 pornographic films from 1972 to 1976 under various pseudonyms, including "Robert Bell," "Irwin Schmeck" and "Guy Thomas."
