Personal life[edit]

Thor is married to Alice Carter and has a son.[2]

On June 4, 2014 he was charged with the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's office. He was bailed for $2.6 million later reduced to $1 million.[3] The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office filed 14 counts against Thor including kidnapping and sexual assault against a minor, specifically a 13-year-old girl who sought acting lessons. The District Attorney alleges that Thor gave the girl "a controlled substance … marijuana" and sexually assaulted her. Thor pleaded not guilty to all 14 counts.[4] The alleged victim, Jordyn Ladell, named herself in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter shortly before the start of Thor's trial.[5] Thor's trial began on August 17, 2015.[6] At that time, 13 of the charges against him had been dropped in recent weeks. The only remaining charge was performing a lewd act on a child.[1] The jury began deliberations after the trial ended on August 25, 2015.[6] On 26 August he was found guilty.[2]
