BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A Brownsville man whose imprisoned brother claimed responsibility for child pornography on a computer has been convicted on 20 possession counts.
The penalty phase was scheduled to resume Friday for 32-year-old
Adrian De Leon. The defense is seeking probation.
A Cameron County jury deliberated three days before convicting De Leon on Thursday afternoon on all 20 counts of possessing child pornography.
The computer was seized by Brownsville police in 2006.
Jesus De Leon, 28, who testified the pornography belonged to him, is serving 50 years for aggravated sexual assault of a child and 22 counts of possession of child pornography.
