Back in July of 2009, attractive 20-year-old versatile gay adult film star William Christopher Ratliff, also known as Elmo Jackson, was arrested in Atlanta, GA for warrants issued from Tennessee and his home state of Mississippi. The charges ranged from Identity theft to check fraud.

He was later convicted and served time in a Mississippi Correctional Facility. Upon his release, Chris appeared to be healthy and happy. On his Facebook page he proudly displayed new photos showing that he’d put on a little weight and had recently tested negative for all STDs.

So Elmo Jackson immediately got back to work, appearing in adult films produced by leading distributor Black Rayne Productions; alongside mega-adult film-star Ace Rockwood.

It appears that old habits die hard. On March 8th 2012, Ratliff was arrested again for check fraud and forging documents. Being that this obviously violated the conditions of his parole, he was sent back to prison. This time he was sentenced to an additional eight years in the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.

Elmo Jackson has spent much of his entire adult life in the system or involved with court proceedings. In 2010, he was a key component in a lawsuit filed by adult film studio, Flava Works involving the breaches of exclusivity contracts of himself and models Danger Zone, Tyson and Chance Jacobs.

In January 2011, Ratliff himself filed a lawsuit against the GEO Group Inc (the company managing the correctional facility he previously served time in) regarding a prisoner petition siting improper prison conditions.

No judgements coming from this direction. We all make choices in life and have to deal with them. At only 23 years old, Ratliff will have spent the vast majority of his 20’s behind bars. Lets all hope that in the year 2016, the 27-year-old man released will finally be on the right path (even if its the same path as this fellow adult film felon).

William Christopher Ratliff (aka Elmo Jackson)

UPDATE [12/12/13]: William Christopher Ratliff is now out on parole until 2015 with a batch of new tattoos. He has started doing bareback adult films again…already. Hopefully he’s making enough money this time around to not be tempted to break the law again.

UPDATE [02/09/14]: According to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office website, William Christopher Ratliff (sporting a flat top fade) has been arrested AGAIN for forgery, identity theft and theft of property…This time in Tennessee. 
He has a court date scheduled for the end of this month. Since he was out on parole at the time of his arrest, he will be incarcerated until his court date.
I don’t know this 25 year old young man and typically my sympathy level is extremly low for these types of situations…but I actually do hope he gets his life together one day for no other reason than he’s one of our own that has massively slipped through the cracks.
