BIRMINGHAM — A Vestavia Hills doctor was sentenced to 30 years in prison for producing and possessing child pornography, according to U.S. Attorney Prim F. Escalona and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr.
Ronald Tai Young Moon, Jr., 56, was convicted in February of this year, for secretly recording neighbors and guests in his home, including girls as young as 12-years-old. Evidence showed the recordings were made between the mid-1990s and 2012.
“Some of those individuals were filmed naked, dressing, and undressing,” Escalona’s office said in a press release. “The footage was located on VHS videotapes found in the defendant’s locked private office with other pornographic VHS tapes, steps away from a TV/VCR set that was working and plugged in. Evidence of multiple hidden-camera devices was also found in the defendant’s office.”
Upon his release from prison, Moon will serve five years of supervised release and will be required to register as a sex offender.
Moon worked at The Industrial Athlete Clinic, in Birmingham until his license was revoked.
