BURBANK : Agent Found Guilty of Assaulting Actresses

A Burbank talent agent was found guilty Wednesday of sexually assaulting several aspiring actresses.

Wallace Kaye, 52, was tried for 11 charges ranging from felony sexual battery by restraint to felony imprisonment by violence to misdemeanor battery, Deputy Dist. Atty. Mark Collier said. Pasadena Superior Court jurors convicted Kaye on all but one false imprisonment charge involving one of the victims, Collier said.

Judge Jack Tso set sentencing for June 9. The crimes carry a possible prison term of up to eight years.

During the trial, investigators and victims testified that the attacks occurred at the Kaye Talent Agency between October, 1990, and September, 1992.


Victims told jurors that they came to Kaye seeking acting or modeling jobs. They said they were assaulted while performing improvisational scenes with Kaye.
