Cameron Thor, a former acting coach who appeared in the blockbuster hit “Jurassic Park,” has been sentenced to six years in prison for lewd misconduct with a minor.
Judge Martin Herscovitz delivered the sentence Wednesday morning at Van Nuys Superior Court.
Thor was charged for the crime in June 2014 and convicted last August after Jordyn Ladell, one of his former acting students, claimed she sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions in 2009 when she was 13.
The judge stated that Thor had “taken advantage” of Ladell’s vulnerable state and that his actions displayed “great preparation.” He was facing up to eight years for the crime, according to the LA County DA’s office.
The victim read a statement aloud to the court room prior to the sentencing and asked Judge Herscovitz to give Thor the maximum punishment for his crime.
Hollywood A-listers like Cameron Diaz, Helen Hunt, Drew Carey, Faye Dunaway, Courteney Cox and Madonna were said to be among the roster of acting students at Carter Thor Studio, the former acting school led by Thor and his wife. Aside from being an acting coach, he also appeared in small TV and film roles including “Jurassic Park,” “Cheers,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “A Few Good Men.”
