ANDREWS - An Andrews man is waiting to learn his fate after being convicted on federal child pornography charges.

A federal jury found 40-year-old John Eric Gilliam guilty of having and receiving child porn.

After getting a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, federal authorities seized Gilliam's computer back in 2006 and found more than 200 sexually explicit images of young children downloaded from the Internet.

He is facing up to 20 years in federal prison when he's sentenced next year.
