Adult Star Austin Wolf Arrested on Child Pornography Charges


Adult male and OnlyFans star Austin Wolf was been arrested and charged in New York after allegedly receiving and distributing "hundreds of videos of child pornography," according to federal officials.

"Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and James Smith, the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation ("FBI"), announced today the arrest of JUSTIN HEATH SMITH, an adult film actor who uses the stage name 'Austin Wolf," reads the press release from the United States Attorney's Office Southern District of New York. "SMITH is charged with sending and receiving hundreds of videos of child pornography via the Telegram application. Those videos depicted children as young as infants, including a video showing a 10-year-old child bound and raped. In addition to sharing child pornography via Telegram, SMITH is also charged with possessing hundreds of additional videos containing child pornography in his Manhattan apartment. SMITH will be presented later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robyn F. Tarnofsky in Manhattan federal court."

According to the release, "Between March 24 and March 28, 2024, SMITH, using an anonymous Telegram account, exchanged hundreds of videos containing child pornography with another individual whose phone was later seized and searched by the FBI pursuant to a search warrant.

"An undercover FBI agent subsequently began a conversation with SMITH's anonymous Telegram account. In the course of those conversations, SMITH revealed details that confirmed his identity.

"On April 21, 2024, the FBI executed a search warrant at SMITH's Manhattan apartment, which revealed an SD card with hundreds of videos containing child pornography."

Wolf made his adult male film debut in 2012 for Randy Blue, Austin_Wolf reads his Wiki. He had moved to New York City in 2002 at the age of 20 where he worked as an escort. Over his career, he has worked with major adult male studios, including Falcon, Raging Stallion, and HotHouse Entertainment.

But it was when he began uploading videos to his OnlyFans account in 2017 that he success grew. Within two weeks he had 100,000 subscribers. The next year he posted a controversial eight-minute video of an off-duty Delta Airlines flight attendant performing oral sex on him in a bathroom inflight that led to the suspension of the Delta employee after widespread tabloid reporting. That same month, he became Pornhub's most-searched gay pornographic actor and won the Str8UpGayPorn Award for Favorite Daddy. His success continued: he won the award for Most Popular Gay Performer at the 2nd Pornhub Awards in October 2019, and won the award for Favorite Fan Content Creator at the 3rd Str8UpGay Porn Awards. In 2019, he was Pornhub's third most-searched gay pornographic actor.

But it on OnlyFans, and the his own subscription-based pornographic website, 4MyFans, where he went viral. "Austin Wolf is a big name in gay porn. An award-winning 6ft 4in hunk and escort, he was one of the pioneers of a new type of pornography," wrote GQ in 2019. But he did so by uploading the Delta clip to his 4MyFans site, which raised issues of confidentiality. But the new age of self-made porn was ushered in and Wolf was on the leading edge.

His social media accounts remain active, though he most recent post on X (formerly Twitter) was months ago; on Instagram sometime last year. His Wiki reports he is married, but offers no other details of his personal life.
