PASADENA — A jury found a Nickelodeon Studios animator guilty Friday of one misdemeanor count of inappropriately touching a 14-year-old boy and one felony count of offering to show pornography to the boy. But the 12-person jury was split on a third charge of showing, sending or distributing harmful material, and found Ezel Channel not guilty of touching a second boy at Nickelodeon, his attorney Thomas White said. Channel, 39, of Tarzana was accused of luring two teenage boys into his workplace, showing them pornography and inappropriately touching them in November 2005.
