NBC Bay Area – A Silicon Valley information technology consultant who rigged up his San Jose home with hidden cameras so he could watch young girls sleeping, undressing, bathing and going to the bathroom was convicted this week of child pornography and molestation charges.

The accidental discovery of John Zeno Moore’s cameras two years ago by a mother who had rented a room in his home, led investigators to finding a trove of child pornography in Moore’s possesion, Santa Clara County prosecutor’s announced Wednesday.

Following a 10-day trial where a jury came back with a guilty verdict on Tuesday, the 40-year-old Moore now faces more than 180 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 31.

“This person will never be able to hurt another little girl again,’’ Deputy District Attorney Erin West said. “On the surface this was an articulate, professional man who was able to gain the trust of these single moms. He turned out to be a serial child molester. We can all be too trusting.”

The case against Moore began in April of 2010 when a single mother and her two young daughters subleased rooms in his rented San Jose home.
