Cortland County, N.Y., District Attorney Mark Suben admitted Friday that he acted in porno movies in the 1970s, according to CNYCentral.com.

Suben previously denied the claims to the press, his family, and staff when asked about it prior to his recent reelection.

A video posted on YouTube on Thursday purported to show that Suben was known by various stage names in the 1970s and appeared in a few pornos including "Deep Throat Part 2," "Lecher," "The Love Witch," and more.

In a press conference on Friday, Suben said that he had used bad judgment in his youth when he performed in the pornographic films. He also said he was sorry for lying about it.

"A few weeks ago, when asked, I denied this to members of the press. I regret that and apologize for it," Suben said. "I was shocked and embarrassed to be confronted with this so many years later. I was embarrassed for my family and friends who stood by me."

Suben said he also performed in commercials, off-Broadway plays, and soap operas in the 1970s.

He didn't take any questions after reading his statement and did not say that he would resign.

Cortland County is a rural area in central New York with a population of about 49,000.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
