A Coalville man accused of making sexual videotapes of a teenage Salt Lake couple has been convicted of exploitation of a minor, dealing in materials harmful to a minor and two counts of distributing pornographic materials.
The eight-member jury returned the verdict against Arvin Moore Wednesday night following 41/2 hours of deliberation.
Third District Judge Pat B. Brian ordered a presentence report and scheduled sentencing for July 6. Moore will remain free on $10,000 bail pending sentencing.
Exploitation of a minor is a second-degree felony punishable by up to a $10,000 fine and one to 15 years imprisonment. Dealing in materials harmful to a minor is a third-degree felony punishable by $5,000 fine and zero to five years imprisonment. Distribution of pornographic materials is a Class-A misdemeanor punishable by one year in prison and a $2,500 fine.
Moore also faces trial July 14 on similar charges involving videotaping of another person.
Moore, 39, was accused of making the videotapes for sale to European buyers, but testified that he never intended to sell them.
Moore was arrested Jan. 11 by Summit County deputy sheriffs who said they found videotapes at his residence that showed teenagers involved in sex acts.
