Jack Venice Sentenced to Life in Prison for Rape

COLFAX, Wash. — Performer Jack Venice (a.k.a. Christopher Jack Reid) was sentenced Friday to life in prison for second-degree rape and burglary.

Reid was convicted in October after a four-day trial in connection with incidents that took place in September 2007 on the campus of Washington State University.

Prosecutors say Reid, 26, and Kyle M. Schott, a 24-year-old former WSU student, broke into several sorority houses on campus and sexually assaulted a student while she slept.

Schott is already serving a 13-month prison sentence for the crimes and testified against Reid as part of a plea-bargraining deal. The victim identified Reid in court as the man she saw in her room when she awoke to find herself being molested.

Reid maintains he is innocent of the crimes. His attorney plans an appeal.

Reid has performed in more than 140 adult videos since entering the business in 2004. He is best known for his appearances in Shane's World titles such as College Amateur Tour. Reid is the current boyfriend of Vivid contract girl Hanna Hilton.

According to the Seattle Times, Reid will be eligible for parole in nine years.
