A former girls field hockey coach is found guilty of child pornography.

A federal jury in Binghamton convicted 38 year old Todd Broxmeyer of 5 charges.

The case involves high school girls he coached.

Action News reporter Gabe Osterhout has reaction.

Guilty.

Todd Broxmeyer didn't say a word as that verdict was read in federal court.

Some of his victims started crying.

It took the jury nearly 5 and a half hours to convict Broxmeyer of child pornography and taking a minor across state lines for sex.

Broxmeyer's attorney, Patrick Kilker, is disappointed by the outcome.

"A little shocked and amazed by a couple of those counts coming back with a guilty verdict given the evidence that was presented and the testimony that was clearly presented in the case so I know Todd's as shocked about the verdict as I am," says defense attorney Patrick Kilker.

Broxmeyer coached independent girls field hockey teams in Broome County, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Investigators found pictures of some of those girls undressed or in sexual poses on Broxmeyer's cell phone.

"The most important strength that I think was the girls, the victims, who testified in this case. It took a lot of courage for them one to come forward, to bring this to law enforcement's attention," says U.S. Prosecutor Miroslav Lovric.

Broxmeyer faces a combined 15 years to life in prison for all 5 charges.

His defense plans to appeal the verdict.

He still faces rape charges in Broome County court.
