A 55-year-old actor and acting coach was convicted Wednesday of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old student in the Santa Monica Mountains in 2009.
Cameron Thor was found guilty of one count of lewd act upon a child and the special allegation of substantial sexual contact, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The victim initially consulted Thor about attending acting classes in 2008, a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated in 2014.
After one of the private lessons at his Agoura Hills home in March 2009, Thor allegedly drove the girl to a secluded area in the Santa Monica Mountains and sexually assaulted her, investigators said.
The victim was 13 years old at the time of the sexual assault, which continued for nearly a year, according to the sheriff’s department.
Thor faces up to eight years in state prison when he is sentenced on Oct. 9.
An actor with the same name appeared in the films “Jurassic Park,” “Hook” and “A Few Good Men,” according to a listing on the Internet movie database IMDB.
