A jury on Friday found Hollywood architect and film academy member Jeffrey Cooper guiltyof threecounts of child molestation.
The two-week criminal trial began May 9 at the Los Angeles Superior Court in Van Nuys, four years after Cooper was arrested and a grand jury indicted him on eight counts involving two children. Cooper, a resident of Calabasas, pleaded not guilty.
The jury convicted him on three felony charges of a lewd act on a child involving one of his accusers.
Jurors, however, were unable to render a verdict on five counts against Cooper involving the other accuser. Judge Alan Schneider declared a mistrial on those charges.
Sentencing was set for June 1. Cooper could face up to 12 years in prison.
