Florida: Teenage gay porn star has high school suspension lifted

A Florida high school student has been allowed to return to school after initially being suspended for appearing in gay porn. In a report by the New York Daily News on Jan. 21, 18-year-old Robert Marucci had his suspension from Cocoa High School lifted after fellow students protested his right to participate in legal adult activities outside of the school.

Marucci, who in a previous report by Examiner.com was referred to under his performing name “Noel”, was told he was suspended from the school for causing a disturbance after word about his video got around. The high school senior was reportedly bullied and as a consequence was punished by the school for unspecified conduct violations.

Classmates who supported Marucci protested the suspension and school board officials have decided to allow him to return to classes. a spokeswoman told the Daily News:

“Any disciplinary procedure follows our student code of conduct. We’d never discipline a student for his or her job or job related activities.”

That seems to be exactly what they did as Marucci broke into the adult industry to help his mother, who struggled.

Robert Marucci’s mother stated that her son’s activities outside of the school wasn’t “anybody’s business” and told the New York Daily News that her son is the most awesome person.

“He stood up, and he was the man of the house when I couldn’t be.”

The school not only accused Marucci of being a “disruption”, but also said he threatened to bring a weapon to campus, an allegation that he has denied.

Because of privacy laws, school officials have said they are unable to discuss his case directly.
