SAN ANTONIO – The jury has returned a verdict in the trial of a former H-E-B executive accused of promoting and possessing child pornography. John Morgan Campbell, 66, faced 53 counts related to this case, and the jury found him guilty in 48 of the charges.

Campbell was taken into custody. Sentencing is scheduled for December. He faces over 600 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Campbell sent a business related email to a coworker with a graphic image attached back in April of 2014. Prosecutors showed the photo of a naked young male to the jury and the coworker took the witness stand.

“What was your reaction?” the prosecutor asked.

“Best way to describe it was shock. Something you wouldn't necessarily have seen in a business environment,” said the witness.

The witness said he immediately went to his supervisor who then went to human resources and later called police. Texas Rangers picked up Campbell’s work devices for evidence. That's where they found more pictures and videos.
