Rings stuntman pleads guilty to selling Footage
Stuff - July 10, 2000
A Wellington stuntman has pleaded guilty to charges related to selling advanced footage of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
In the Auckland District Court this morning, the 35-year-old, whose name remains suppressed, admitted one charge of receiving three video tapes and another charge of dealing in a reproduced document.
Police had been investigating the matter for over a month, after Lord of the Rings footage was offered for sale on the Internet.
Three other charges were withdrawn and the man will be sentenced next month. - Radio New Zealand
