A Cameron county jury found Adrian De Leon guilty on all 20 counts against him on Thursday afternoon.
The 32 year-old Brownsville man claimed the child porn found on his computer belonged to his brother who is serving time on similar charges. Deliberations had to come to a halt on Wednesday when a juror's family member got sick and she could not return to the courthouse. They continued their deliberations on Thursday morning and late in the day they reached their decision.
The jury began deliberating in the punishment phase and they will continue on Friday morning. De Leon could face up to 20 years in prison on some of the counts against him.
